Good: Perfect size, stylish and customisable
Comment: I have been lucky enough to have a play with one of these devices at Samsung HQ and I really cannot understand this review's comment that apps being a push button away being negative. You can add app shortcuts to any one of the seven homescreens and if anything this saves you having to go through lots of apps you may just use occasionally. The device itself is slightly curved at the back and is very responsive. Android works perfectly on the device although I didnt get chance to install or play with any apps. The device is relatively lightweight and is perfect for browsing the internet in bed or on the sofa. I am a bit surprised that Swype is not listed as a good point as it makes typing a lot easier - takes a bit of getting used to though. It works a treat on my Galaxy S.
Good: Full of extra features. True iPad beater.
Bad: The estimated price. Way too high.
Comment: The price on most websites seem to be extremely high. I doubt these prices are correct because at IFA Samsung insisted the price would be lower then the iPad so at the moment its all speculation.
Comment: Has all the functions which we probably need in a tablet like device...
will have to wait for the pricing through the mobile operators and unlocked too...a 2 sim option for one mobile number is an interesting concept too...
I presume there's no only wi-fi option
Have to also see how it works as an e-book reader
Also have to see if we have a Windows 7 tablet coming up soon !!!
Good: Size and applications
Bad: Total amount of Memory storage, and the quoted price tag?
Comment: The perfect tablet only the price should be lower.
