Samsung’s Galaxy Tab android tablet is officially available today at T-Mobile. The first serious Android-based contender to the Apple iPad has had mixed reviews from those who’ve had a chance to play with it, while we’re still waiting in the wings. As Android users ourselves, we’re eager to get started. What’s special about the Samsung Galaxy Tab?
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a 7-inch tablet PC running Android version 2.2 on a 1GB processor. It features a 3.0MP digital camera with an LED flash, capable of recording video at the full 1080P HD resolution. Like the Apple iPad, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is controlled by a multi-touch display where users can navigate through apps and files in the unit’s storage (16GB – 32GB on SD) and freely browse the web. Beyond these standards, the Galaxy also includes GPS connectivity, a gyro sensor and e-reader capability.
