Official video demonstration of the Samsung Galaxy Tab will keep you yearning for more
Not only will you get a solid look through at the upcoming hardware, but it tastefully manages to show us all some of the various software specific aspects of the Android powered tablet. You can even see how some apps, like the Gmail and calendar apps, are optimize to better use the larger real estate offered by the Galaxy Tab – providing you some valuable productivity time while on the go. Additionally, the web browsing experience isn't going to disappoint since Flash 10.1 is supported which provides for that desktop-like feel.
We even get a look at the useful keyboard docking unit that's made especially for the Tab which will allow you to get some much needed work done at the office or elsewhere. Finally, we can see some of the Tab's calling functions – which are sadly going to be omitted from the US versions.

I'm still worried about the OS not really being for tablets. Is this a valid concern if I only want one of these for browsing?

no, browsing is going to be top notch. The OS will be fine for that. Its just not "optimized" for that size screen for apps... yet, but it will be shortly. Things like web browsing will be unaffected and only benefit from the bigger screen.

you know... there one nice thing I can say about Apple, when they show you something, that thing IS already there... you know, when they first showed the iPad they would put a launch data and that day you would know you can go out and buy one samsung has been fooling around months showing and showing and showing, unlike apple, if you don't like it, you don't buy it... if you like it... you can't anyway

big difference is that Apple only delt with ATT so they only had 1 launch to worry about. Samsung is going for all carriers to have it, so there is a diff launch for every carrier for whatever reason.
