    Hello Everyone,

    We recently received a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 free from our internet service provider (brand new). I was SOOOOOOO excited to get it and had never thought of wanting/needing a tablet before. As soon as we got it I decided I hated it so my husband took it over and said I could get an iPad2 (belated bday gift) once the new iPad came out. Well March 7th rolls around and I decided to preorder the iPad3 instead of getting the iPad2.

    My husband has now decided he dislikes the Galaxy... it freezes up and apps crash constantly... is the iPad2 better then the Galaxy? I see that the Galaxy actually has more RAM but it doesnt seem to run nicely..... We shouldnt really get another iPad3 so would the iPad2 be a good choice or is he better off with the Galaxy?

    Indeed it is :)

    Its a sad fact of life that despite so many people developing the android o/s to do so many things... its still so far away from being as usable
    as an ipad

    What service provider do you use?? I never get anything free from anyone. Oh, a free wireless router from FIOS, but I already have one of course...

    Go with the IPad 2, or 3 (New IPad) which ever, but do away with the Samsung Galaxy. I bought my wife one for Christmas, she took it out of the box, played with it for Literly 10 minutes, put it back in the box, and said "take it back". She said she'd just stick with her laptop. Just two weeks ago, I surprised her with an IPad 2, and she hasn't put it down lol. She Loves it and hadn't even ever played with mine. I say IPad, No Question.

    I was thinking the same thing two months ago and chose the iPad 2 before they announced the iPad 3! No thanks to there big tv advertising campaign to flog the last of the iPad 2s without hinting there's a new one out in two months. Still I've not looked back since iPad 2 came out its so much easier to use and the possibilities are endless and the support is much better with the jailbreaking community and the iPad forums.
    Choose wisely..... :)

    Similar deal with my wife. She bought me my iPad2 about this time last year. I bought her a Blackberry Playbook, because she has a Blackberry phone, and I thought it would be easier for her to read her (on average) 5000 emails per day. I'm rarely off the iPad. She never touches the Playbook.

    I don't think there is much of a comparison. The Samsung tests out fairly well and probably has the capability to do some things better than an iPad. But, in real world use....it's not even close. If they ever get Android running smoothly on these tablets and can get the app support they might start competing. However, they are in such a hole that they may never be able to climb out of it no matter what they do.

    I'm NOT an apple guy per say and I tried all the tablets out and did research. The iPad 2 was the easiest shopping choice I've ever made regarding electronics and/or computers.

    Come on guys. Are you all brainwashed by Apple?
    I had a Galaxy Tab when they first came out and love it, I had an Ipad for my birthday two weeks ago and love that too.
