    You know that 1 euro = 1 dollar right? In the eyes of companies then. You'll probably get it for 750 dollars.

    Am I the only one that thinks the galaxy tab is way overpriced?

    Is this turd going to have an IPS screen? 'Cause if not, (and I really hate to say this), the iPad is still better. And if not better, at least more usable in the visual sense.

    Well no, it doesn't.

    From the article:
    I don't think you are part of the demographic this piece of kit is aimed at, do you?
  6. So will the US premium tab be able to make phone calls? If not then it's still a piece of garbage made of lies.

    If it were possible to make garbage out of lies only, it wouldn't have a foul odor. So, you sir, should patent this immediately.
    I too get junk mail aimed at the affluent from time to time. I try not to let it go to my head.

    I was talking about convert rates by merchants. Everything in the world is being sold that way, and we're being disadvantaged hugely by this. Unfortunatley, we can't change much.

    I mean the tab in general, am I the only one that thinks $650 is wayyy too much for the regular tab?

    Well, that's pretty much the design aesthetic behind the iPad isn't it? What is that s** even for. I suppose if you want to get in on that market, you should probably shoot for an item that does too little, and costs too much.

    The "Waaay TOOO coool" TV commercial for the iPad has one of the most annoying musical cues I've ever heard.

    The tab is overpriced period. The ADAM is by far the best and most fair priced tablet PC on the market. Samsung would charge 3 times as much as notionink is for the same product if they made it.
