Samsung US Galaxy Tab Overview: Hands On


The Samsung Galaxy Tab is set to revolutionize the tablet space. There really isn’t very much quality competition when looking for an Android device.

Eken, Comangi, Pandigital and others have good ideas but with lower versions of Android and resistive screens hold them back.
