    here comes the competition...part 2

    Samsung announced today the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 inch models. Both are the thinnest tablets in the world and operate on the android 3.0 OS styled with samsungs own TouchWiz UX interface.

    there are 3 models, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. Prices start at $499.

    Sprint also announced the HTC EVO VIEW. A touch screen tablet to add to their list of EVO devices. Specs are coming soon.

    And finally, the blackberry playbook is available for pre order. Priced at $599, the 7 inch touch screen tablet running RIMS tablet OS will be available in april.

    Its going to be an interesting summer....
    Life begins, and spirits rise,
    and they become memories that vaporize,
    and the vapor becomes the dreams we devise,
    and while we are dreaming...
    Time flies...

    I wouldn't care for Samsung's touchwiz UI. I wish the manufactures would quit putting their own UI on top of the OS.

    Agreed here. Touch wiz on phones sucks. So unless they've dramatically Improved it in this tablet version......

    True, but this may give apple more of a run because they can come in at the same entry price. It is silly, IMO, to offer two sizes that are basically the same. 8.9 in. And 10.1 inch...WOW! Big difference. They coulda saved a lot more money and put it into a single device than trying to come out with 2 different levels of it. I bet the $499 entry level one is probaly the 8.9 inch, in which apple still wins.
    This will be an interesting summer though seeing all these companies Gun 4 Apple. Are those tablets really even thinner thn ipad2? I honestly wouldn't want them to be so thin and skinny it feels flimsy..lmao

    I'm impressed by the hardware and when their Tablet apps catch up it will be an interesting race.

    We should all be wishing them the best. The more competition Apple has the more likely we will get faster hardware and software updates.

    I am jealous of Gingerbreads homepage with working widgets. I hope Android tablets make a big enough impact on the market that I at least get those features on my iPad.
