    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPfCZC4VHnE"]YouTube - [GALAXY Tab] Samsung GALAXY Tab Official Commercial[/ame]​

    Samsung has been showcasing its Galaxy tablet today, which some experts have been saying could give the iPad a run for its money. The Galaxy has a 7-inch TFT-LCD display, and is powered by the Android Operating System 2.2, and according to Samsung’s press release, it features PC-like web browsing, email, voice and video call, SMS/MMS and social networking. It also has Flash, Samsung says, somewhat pointedly!

    At just 380g the Galaxy is very light, almost like an e-reader, and has an e-reading application called the “Readers Hubâ€, as well as a “Media Hub†and “Music Hubâ€, and Google Mobile Services such as Google Maps Navigation and Google Goggles. It also has both front and rear-facing cameras. I wonder if Apple is regretting not including a camera in the first generation of iPads? Or is a camera really necessary on a tablet?

    No word yet as to launch date or price for the much-vaunted iPad rival. For discussions on the new Galaxy Tab, and other Android Tablets be sure to visit: Samsung Galaxy Tab

    I like it, which is a surprise because normally bigger is better in my book.

    Weird, I like it too...
    The size is about right for an ebook reader and proportions fit HD movies.

    Well, what really stunned me is 'While the iPad has no camera, the Galaxy Tab has two -- including a front-facing camera for video conferencing. It's also a phone.' So awesome!
    Hmm, just considering to buy one or not, as Im also really happy with my fantastic iPad, For work, the iPad does almost all of the things an average user needs, and with a much much nicer U/I. Easy of use, fast, and efficient. For entertainment, now with one of the top features of iPad --- movie watching, Im totally sucked in enjoying kinds of videos and movies with iPad, though some times need in the help of iPad video converter from iFunia for lack of flash support. Ugggggg!!!!

    In that clip the guy took the Tab out of his jacket pocket. By the size of the device, I'm pretty sure they had that pocket sown there expressly for that commercial.

    looks pretty cool. I having a camera and a phone is great. And, no you dont need to put it up to your head, bluetooth or speakerphone. I'd do it with my iPad if I could and stop carrying a phone.

    I'm also amazed by this device! I watched this promo-video and fell in love with Galaxy Tab! It seems just great with all these cool features. I especially like it combines a tablet and a phone. And also that's awsome it supports flash, has USB and 2 cameras.

    USB is a biggie, as is the camera. If the price is right Samsung have a winner on their hands.

    I'm actually shocked how well thisntablet actually looks. I especially am very interested in the camera on the front (not as much for the rear). I foresee Apple having a rough road ahead, especially if: 1) has a cheaper price tag. 2) they do not come out with a second generation with a built in camera. I would even be pleased with a camera add-on kit like the old nitendo gaMeboys

    I like my ipad but I think I would enjoy the cusomization you can do with Android. If Android launches a tablet and the hardware is reliable look out Apple

    That reminds me of the discussion on a new 7" iPad. This Tab is exactly in that form range, it could be as portable as this one looks like.

    Going by the projected price of this device in the European market, it'll cost about $1000, non-contract price. That makes it significantly less appealing. I'll stick with my iPad, for sure.

    Yes, I would prefer a larger screen. I dont know if the 7" thing is cutting costs, or if market researchers are saying that's what everyone wants. 7" is certainly better than any phone screen out there, but bigger is better. :)

    The size really depends on what you need to do with such a device.

    I've done a lot of hospital waiting rooms lately. While the iPad is entertaining it is too big to be practical there. A smaller design that can read books, magazines and do the occasional web surf or dare I say phone call could be more portable. A 7" will be comfortable for many people.

    On another note, I suspect this Tab to be made of plastic ie. the weight. I don't like that it makes a portable device too fragile.

    Right now the price tag is the deciding factor for me.

    I love my iPad but there is definitely room for a second tablet in my life. The current size of the screen is great for school and taking notes, but outside of that I could definitely see why people consider it 'too big'. Maybe the 7'' would be right for, especially since I'm graduating this year! My family has been bugging me to get a second iPad but I told them how Apple likes to refresh their products every year and it's best to get (one) per year haha.

    If the Galaxy Tab is priced around $300 US I'm in for one.
