The closest iPad to this Galaxy Tab would be the 16GB model with 3G that is priced at $827 U.S. In this case, paying more could give you a smaller amount of real estate. But on the other hand, Apple's tablet offers no front or rear camera, microSD card to add memory, and does not support Bluetooth 3.0. Tablet buyers will have a tough choice to make although we would imagine that those familiar with Android would lean toward Samsung's tablet while iOS devotees would pick the iPad.
Parts of Europe will be receiving the Galaxy Tab this week and the device will be introduced in the States tomorrow at which time we would expect to get some solid launch dates for potential U.S. buyers.
