I have to disagree. I think Win 7 Phone OS or Zune OS based tablets are going to be the only real competition. It is the only mobile OS (CE Based of course) that has the same velvet feel to it while using it. Everything is fluid and smooth, whereas everything android is chunky and choppy no matter how much power you throw at it!
That is such garbage BS. This thread is full of it. I have an Epic 4g and it is at LEAST as smooth as the ipad. Web browsing on the phone is MUCH smoother than the iPad I own. The only reason people feel that their Android devices are choppy is because they have 30 widgets and live wallpaper running. Set up a phone or tablet with just a bunch of icons like the iPad, and it will be at least as smooth.
Also, with regards to web browsing, I am not sure of the Galaxy Tab, but since its pretty much a larger version of my phone I am fairly certain, it has text wrap while browsing the web. That is it reflows the text instantly to fit the screen no matter how much or little you zoom in. It fits the most text on the screen so that you dont have to scroll around like an idiot.
Also, you cannot offer a competent review by playing with one in store for a few minutes.
Edit: I have seen this as a trend for MONTHS now. Apple fanboys have been praising Win7Phone like its going out of style. Its pretty obvious that its just an attempt to downplay android as a serious competitor, when it certainly is. Win7Phone is garbage at this point. It could evolve into something great, but right now its awful. I have owned Windows Mobile phones for YEARS and I loved them, but what Microsoft has now is embarrassing. They are YEARS behind both iOS and Android. The phones they are pumping out are nice, but are crippled just like iOS devices, especially with their microsd disaster. The UI is ugly as sin and is just as limiting and annoying as iOS. Right now, they are WAAAY behind Android and iOS.
