    The Galaxy is sized as a big SmartPhone
    The iPAD is sized as a small Computer.

    So you decide if you want something that is more like a phone or more like a Computer.

    This question has already been discussed in several other threads here.
    And is still being discussed in those threads.
    I doubt that Yet another thread on the same topic will prove very useful to us, or to you.

    I would say no, the Galaxy Tab is overpriced for what it is. If you MUST buy something right now, buy the iPad. But if you can wait a few months for more Android tablets to be released in the beginning of the year, you will be much better off. Android 3.0 is coming soon and will make the Android tablets much better. That's what I'm waiting for.

    If they bring it down to $250 then I would consider it. I mean the NookColor will be getting Froyo and some type of market for applications so Samsung needs to take notice.

    iPad now but if you're prepared to wait there will be better competition in the next couple of months, to say nothing of the iPad2 sometime around April if we're lucky.

    It all depends on your priorities, but most will agree that 90% of the time, the iPad is the better option if your decision is now. Like all consumer electronics, bigger and better is just around the corner. The only thing you can ever be sure of is that you will lust for something else later.

    The Galaxy tab is getting great reviews, and looks very well designed. I like the iPads size for mags I read having the feel of a real page size. Also for me with the Evo 4G at 4.3" the Tab just doesnt seem big enough.

    If you get one, let us know what you think.

    I'm currently with T-Mobile and after playing with one in the store I can see that it's a great device (I also gave it the Angry Birds test).

    The killer for me is the price and there is no way I would go on contract to get a lower price.

    Agreed with above. Only way to get a lower price is to be locked into a 3G contract. When the wifi only ones come out, it should be interesting. I'm someone who uses 3G for my iPhone only and does not need the broadband access for iPad. But even if I did want to use 3G, I would not want to be locked into a 2 year contract. iPad give you the choice at least for people who want the 3G on an as you want to pay basis. When I saw the price on an unsubsidized Galaxy Tab, I was like, no way am I paying $650 for 3G I won't use especially with all the iOS apps I already have. (now at like 140)
