Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 first commercial hits, complete with Apple belittling
We all know that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 bathes in the sunshine rays of the "thinnest and lightest 10" tablet" title. We'd imagine that Samsung would be using this at the forefront of its hefty promotional campaign that started with an exclusive concert by R&B singer Ne-Yo the other day.

The first commercial for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that Samsung has prepared to air, however, deals directly with an indirect competitor, Apple's iPad 2. At times during the footage, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1's capabilities are directly compared to the incapabilities of the iPad 2, like Adobe Flash absence, for instance, and it all ends up with the conclusion that the Tab 10.1 does a lot of things better.

It's an entertaining watch, so have a look at the video below, you might learn something, like how to get your tree-stranded pets down without the need of uniformed crews or a ladder.

hahah exactly... isnt it funny how they dont compare the light and thinner to the ipad? lets see samsung sell more of these than the ipad then maybe they have a right to bitch about apple... honestly, idk why they need to do that... apple doesnt need to do it... they dont mke commercials saying well the xoom didnt hasnt sold as much as we sold on our first day... and for people below... comparing desktop apps to mobile apps is totally different... and yes, mobile apps matter greatly...

They forgot better apps.....Oops they have like 5. That's what consumers want. They want more than 5 apps and on that dept. Google is missing big time. Don't get it wrong I love both OS but Apple has a leg up on apps. Hopefully Devs start porting or making more apps for Honeycomb. Until then the iPad is gonna keep a big share of the market. iPod history is repeating itself.

So, what you are saying then is everyone will buy a Win8 tablet because Windows has better apps thus the iPad will die soon. . . I see. I guess that's why Macs have stayed alive because they've never really had the better selection of apps. How many apps do you actually use on a daily basis? 1, 4, 10? Freakin' idiots spewing this app crap. . . way to swallow apple's marketing and spew it all over the place.

Ummmm, this has the same OS as the xoom right? How did the xoom do compared to the ipad again? Lol. And didn't they also say that xoom offers more because it supports flash, and that the xoom is better than the ipad in everything? Then why is the Galaxy tab being compared to the ipad? Should it be compared to the better tab like the xoom? Lol. Hmmmmm.

xoom had no chance because it was bigger fatter heavier way more expensive than the ipad2 and also came with a buggy software, basically it had no chance. samsung 10.1 tab is lighter and thinner and is similarly price and comes with the newest 3.1 update. all these together allow it to better compete with the ipad2. honestly i don't see the point of an tablet just yet as i can do pretty much everything on my smartphone. once the tablet does a lot more than my smartphone than i might consider.
