The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a new tablet into a busy market. Will it stand out in its own way to make it a compelling choice or will it blend into the crowd to never be heard from again?
Right away, it's easy to tell this is not a product that Samsung shoved out the door overnight to simply have a presence on the market, but spent countless hours creating a thin slice of Honeycomb that is now available with a 4G radio.
The Verizon version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 ups the game for Samsung, with its main competitor, the iPad 2 still stuck on 3G data speeds. The tablet comes fully packed with everything that you would require in a modern tablet. The device measures in at 10.1”x6.9”x0.34”, weighs 1.25lbs, runs Android 3.1, 16 GB or 32 GB of storage, Nvidia Tegra 2 running at 1Ghz (dual core), Bluetooth 2.1, 1280x800 WXGA resolution, 3 MP rear facing camera, 2MP front facing camera, Wi-Fi (A/B/G/N), GPS and 3.5mm Audio Jack.
The screen on the Tab is gorgeous and responsive. Samsung has done an excellent job selecting a display with a relatively wide viewing angel as well as being responsive into this device. Pinch to zoom was accurate and responsive, all gestures were picked up with minimal to no lag and the user experience is top of its class.
