Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 hands-on

0. phoneArena posted on 14 Feb 2011, 09:02

PhoneArena comes away satisfied with the thin and light next generation of the Samsung Android tablet - the Galaxy Tab 10.1. There is just enough bezel around it, but it is both thinner and lighter than the direct competitor Motorola XOOM...

Impressive Tablet w/ Honeycomb, hope that this Galaxy comes with Gorilla Glass in it.

This looks like one of the best Android tablets this year, but I think I'll wait for AMOLED

Why isn't anybody talking about this thing's Achilles heel? It doesn't have a USB port, so you're tied to some sort of synchronization software! How is this different from the iPad? Consumers want an independent device, that we can sync should we choose to!
If I'm going to buy a tablet that I have to sync all the time I might as well get the iPad as there's more content available for it!

The Xoom shows much more promise in the independent device department.

Um, why don't you try watching the vid, starting around the 1:00 mark, he clearly states that it has a micro-usb port. It's just covered with the security dongle.

Way too large!!!! Why did they do this? I just hope they are really going to still support the 7 inch version with HC and SAmoled Plus.

Also, HTC is on it with Pen input; however, it has that crappy HTC sense inteface with a non-table OS of Android 2.3.

I want Honeycomb (or think I want it).
I want one handed use (one hand can grip, width-wise, fully around the device), hence, 7inch screen or even LG's 8.9 wide format does the job.
I want Pen input for CONTENT CREATION!!!! Hence, Ntrig or Wacom will need to be involved with the screen.

The idiots at Microsoft botched the whole thing by insisting on a full Windows OS on their tablets. Completely imbecilic as this is not efficient!!! Go with WP7, Wacom, and support devices sizes for one handed width-wise grip, and there will be "one OS to rule them all" with there productivity and enterprise focus!!
