Comment: Great for people who want to watch Redtube and XHamster or play homebrew Bejewelled clones and tower defence games.
Other than that I don't see why someone would chose an Android tab over an iPad at the same price except Apple hate.
Technically a lovely bit of kit but it's when Android tabs are priced pound for pound and spec for spec the same as the iPad then Flash is not enough of a USP for most lay punters to make them chose an Android over an iPad.
Â£399 for the 32gb and I think this would be a compelling alternative for a lot of people.
Mind you chances are, if it's anything like the Xoom, wait till xmas and it will be Â£399 for the 32gb.
Good: The hardware
Bad: the software, lack of expanded memory, no USB...
Comment: Having been one of the poor fools that needs to make software for Android, and hence been using a Xoom for months, I welcome a better, lighter, thinner Android Tablet.
Coming home from work however my free time is spent using an iPad2.
It's simple, Android on tablets is rubbish, 3.1 is slow, hard for first time users, and too quickly dismissed to allow people to get used to it. It always feels like beta software.
Everyone says wait until when it comes to Android, well it's had long enough.
Good: its not apple !
Bad: Poor apps store ! (at the moment)
Comment: im really disappointed at CNet uk review. everyone know about the lack of Software available to android so stop going on like a broken record about it! if you check the stats its getting better, ios is better but you have to pay for it! android is mostly free ! please review more non bias its clear your very bias to ipad and apple stop it your ruining your own credibility as a good review site where people go to get info on.
to be honest your first page puts a bad light on the tab 10.1 but during the review you cant help but glorify how good it really is then when you finalise you say oh well not as good as ipad ?
software is not as good as ipad everything else is excellent my bad point would be the lack of micro sd and possibly usb as standard.
it annoys me that apple is sueing everyone for patent infringemnet for patents and design which is clearly not special and new and uniqe i can bet that the iphone 4 design is out and 3gs is back but with metal back (or some sort of alloy like ipod) for iphone 5
if we had no android we would be getting iphone 4 this year and ios 4 now but because of the constant push by android ios 5 and iphone 5 is coming out sooner then apple wants, jobs know that android will surpass apples app store soon years sooner then he would have like so he is having to change his perfect apple model of world domination, it use to be superior products when its suits them but with android and tech advance so quickly i truly believe apple could have milked the iphone 3gs longer if it had not been for htc and android upping the anty every few months we would see an iphone 4 then 4g then 4gs.
sorry got off topic.
but all in all the android galaxy tab is a good machine to browse the new and watch movies and listening to music. if there was micro sd it would get 5 stars but due to the lack of it 4.5 stars
honestly have anyone tried to load up music or movies in itunes (divx mkv mp3 etc) its not easy
Comment: and, sorry, but the screenshot of the display is a HC standard not samsung. WTH of a review, change job mate...
Comment: What's the point to compare a tablet with smartphones?!?! of course the galaxy is at the top... poor review indeed
Good: Good quality hardware
Bad: Not a lot of support from the app developers at the moment
Good stuff, nice review.
Comment: i want it here in davao city
Good: -Adjustable to my liking, with new OS it's Performance is great. It beat my iPadII.
Bad: -Android Market is so lame, gadgets are not cool as iPad's
Comment: If you are Innovator. Try this one, and you will have a better look of how future Tablet will be.
For most of Apply's loyalist this thing is some thing they should recon with.
Good: Screen, OS, Design
Bad: Android Store is POOOR
Comment: overall better than iPad 2
Comment: not as compelling as other tablets.
