The new Samsung Galaxy is based on another cell phone with sales success, the Samsung Galaxy S Smartphone. If you look at it simply, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is an enlarged version of the Samsung Galaxy S. At 7 inches, the screenís format is 3 inches bigger than that of the Samsung Galaxy S, and the amount of pixels has been reduced by 2 million, which results in a 3 Megapixel digital camera. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is run by a Power VR SGX540 and a 1 GHz Hummingbird processor and is equipped with a 16GB or 32GB internal memory. This can also be extended with a micro SDHC memory card, to achieve a total storage capacity of 48/64GB. The Samsung Galaxy Tab runs on Android 2.2

Samsung Galaxy Tab price
The Samsung Galaxy Tabís price tag is about $600 / 749 Euros (varies per region), but will probably have a lower price in combination with a data subscription offered by a provider. At first, it seems like a big price tag, but when you compare the price composition with that of the Samsung Galaxy S, for example, and the subscription prices that the providers offer, the price tag is understandable. Still, we had definitely expected a lower price tag, especially seeing the price level of the Apple iPad, which seems more attractive.

Samsung Galaxy Tab
After having used the Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet for a while, it has become clear to us that the Galaxy Tab is an all-round tablet with specifications that you would expect from a modern tablet. The Samsung Galaxy tab also shows us the difference with the Apple iPad, for example. The comparison is inevitable. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is equipped with a microSDHC card slot and a standard format SIM card is used for telecommunication. Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is equipped with a digital camera. It may seem obvious, but just these features are missing in the iPad.

Samsung Galaxy Tab review
The Samsung Galaxy Tabís advantage is optimal dimensions for carrying it with you. In your inside pocket is a realistic option and the relatively lightweight also allows for the Tab to be held in one hand. Whether this is decisive for a user depends on his or her needs. We can imagine that both devices will be placed next to each other on the market, without one having to replace the other. Of course, this will partly be the case, but we still see an intense competition between the two parties. Read the full Samsung Galaxy Tab review at LetsGoMobile.
