A few months ago I purschased a Galaxy Tab 7.7 rather than update my orignal iPad. The main reason at the time was that I wanted a smaller lighter tablet to use on public transport, and I wanted to see what Android had to offer. Afer three months I find that I use both regularly. Neither device has all the features I want, but combined they cover most of the bases. The iPad stays at home and is used when the larger screen size is beneficial. I also use it for Internet banking becuse I think that the closed iOS is more secure. The Galaxy is preferred while on the move because it is smaller and lighter. It is also better for backing up photos due to the open file system and micro SD slot. The Galaxy web browser has Flash but Safari will actually works on some web sites that the Galaxy can't access.
