Russian President Dmitry Medvedev disses the Galaxy Tab's camera
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is picking up steam as a true iPad contender, but it got some bad press yesterday from Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Medvedev posted the following on Twitter: "Winter comes to Moscow. Picture taken with a Samsung Galaxy Tab. It's convenient, but the quality isn't great :-(."

We first want to applaud President Medvedev on being an early adopter of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and a diligent contributor to Twitter. But we might be most excited by his use of emoticons. Can you imagine that being acceptable even 10 years ago?

Don't worry, Galaxy Tab fans, this might not be bad press. One of the most powerful heads of state purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab, and called it "convenient" on his official Twitter account. Besides, you aren't buying the Galaxy Tab for its camera. With 600,000 units sold, and a projected 1 million before the end of the year, the Galaxy Tab is making great progress.

I highly doubt Russian President will be posting something on twitter. I don't even think he has an account on twitter.

Well no duh it doesn't have that great of quality. It only has a 3MP camera, the light isn't very bright, and there is only like 3 main colors in the pic.
