  1. Call us confused. Unless we're missing something, Samsung has installed Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on a chubbier, slower version of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and rebranded it the…

  2. Talk about perfect timing. I'm in the market for a 7 incher to take to classes and this one (or the Tab 7.0 plus) seems like the one to get.

    Why do 3G models cost so much more? The modem cost about 15 pence? I mean, most £30+ mobile phones now include 3G? So why does the iPad and all the other tablets charge like £50-£100 for its inclusion?

    Get the tab 7.7. 1280x800 super amoled plus? It's gotta be such a beautiful screen.

    Makes no sense at all. The better buy is the Tab 7 Plus, and an upgrade to ICS come April time.

    Samsung must know something we don't, because it's almost a step backwards.

    It seems that Samsung is in a hurry to release an ICS tablet that it is almost just a software upgrade. Can Sammy just release an upgrade? oh wai-

    For all we know, it's got something to do with the lawsuit with Apple. Apple is suing over features found in ICS, and maybe a tablet helps Samsung's case instead of just having the Galaxy Nexus.

    I have no idea, really, but maybe the pricing will explain it.

    And they said patents will encourage innovations. Now big companies are patenting "button design" on devices? Just imagine all that could have been lost if back then people patented everything they came up with - tire, wheel, glasses, keyboard, shoes, needle, knife, pencils, etc.

    What is the good in innovation if ideas cannot be shared?
     
  11. You also have to factor in the sim card slot, etc... But even then it wouldn't cost very much... I forgot to mention you have to factor in profits, lots and lots of profits...
