Don’t think Apple can play hardball with its ipad these days because soon, ipad will have a company in the form of Samsung Galaxy Tab. SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB provides an alternative to all the functionalities of ipad and better. Yup Samsung thus far has been the most innovative, inventive and responsive company. Forget Nokia, they no longer have leading position in the smartphones/phones market. Official pricing is still unknown, but we now know that the device is due to hit European markets in mid-September, and the U.S. and Asia by year’s end. But definitely it’s going to be lower than iPad given its size which is almost half the size of iPad. Definitely something you can put in your pocket still. The Galaxy Tab’s size and specs put it somewhere between the phone-like Dell Streak and the magazine-size Apple iPad. The Tab uses a 7-inch capacitive touch screen with a 1,024×600 Wide Super VGA (WSVGA) resolution. It comes with Android 2.2 (Froyo), the complete Google apps Market, Flash 10.1, 16GB or 32GB of memory, GPS, and integrated sensors, such as a gyroscope, accelerometer, light sensor, and geomagnetic sensor. The special “smart phone/mini computer” runs on an ARM Cortex A8 1GHz applications processor, connected to a PowerVR SGX540 graphics processor. As for camera, it is blessed with a 3.2 megapixel camera on the back includes auto-focus and an LED flash and records video up to 720×480. A video chat-compatible camera on the front of the Tab uses a 1.3 megapixel VGA resolution to beam your pretty face to your friends and family.
The tablet’s screen looked nice: The resolution is lower than that of the iPad (1024-by-600 vs. 1024-by-768) but the dots per inch are higher.
