Shortly after the release of the original 7″ Samsung Galaxy Tab I found myself camped out like an Apple Fan Boy at Toys R Us on Thanksgiving night. It was cold, wet and rainy but luckily I had an umbrella that worked great, a case on my Galaxy Tab and I was going to watch a movie or something to stay entertained. That’s when I quickly learned that not all 30 pin connectors are created equally.
I showed up in the line with about 50% to go on the Galaxy Tab. I thought I was lucky because I had a fully charged Amzer solar charger so if my tab went down I could just plug it in to the solar chargers USB port and voila. No dice. I got a red X over the battery charging indicator and the Galaxy Tab quickly died after that.
