Seems it does not have 1GB ram but 768only. It's necessary to download update to 4.0.4 ICS and disable tons of bloatware, then it seems to work a bit. I'm considering putting custom ROM, but I'm not sure about it yet. To make phone calls it is possible to root it and install package to enable this feature on Samsung ROM and couple of custom ROMs, but I haven't tested it. Well, quite nice piece of HW, but Samsung software is mostly crap, you'll spend time disabling it and replacing it with Google's. And there's also open problem with phone calls. Message to Samsung: you are not Apple, neither Google, and don't try to be.
Hello everyone. I've been using this device from a year now! You can insert a Sim card but cannot make calls. Using 3G data and messaging is a brilliant option.

ICS release is bad. Poor Camera quality. Waiting to upgrade to Jelly Bean.
Panos, 28 Oct 2012I can't find such info. Are you sure?ask samsung of facebook!
Battery life is worse after ICS update than it was on Honeycomb. And gets quite hot more noticeably even when connected thru WiFi
