Tearing down the Galaxy Tab
The iPad's overwhelming share in the tablet segment will open up the space for iPad killers and trigger endless polemics. The Galaxy Tab is definitely one of them with a 1GHz Hummingbird processor in comparison to Apple's iPad A4 chip. Memory-wise we are counting solid 1 GB of RAM. The biggest difference is of course the size and as we all know size matters. You can see this reflected in the bill of materials, which grosses $205 for the Galaxy Tab compared to $264.7 for the 16 gig 3G flavor of the iPad, according to iSuppli's previously released analysis.
But let's skip the numbers and look at the cracking and fixing. Take a look at the pictures below to see for yourselves.
