The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is U.S. Cellular's only 4G LTE tablet, but we have a better idea. The carrier lets you use its Android phones as Wi-Fi hotspots, and it plans to sell a standalone MiFi-style hotspot as well. If you're interested in speeding along on the nation's most-loved network, get a Samsung Galaxy S Aviator, U.S. Cellular's upcoming 4G LTE phone, or U.S. Cellular's upcoming standalone Samsung 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot. Then pair one of those with the Wi-Fi-only models of the new Apple iPad, Apple iPad 2 ($399, 4.5 stars) or Asus Transformer Prime Wi-Fi tablet (Best Deal: $499.99 at Walmart.com). You'll get the best of both worlds: U.S. Cellular's LTE service with a better tablet, and no extra two-year contract.

Samsung Tablet PC: Excellent, But No iPad Killer
Source: Small Business Computing English
Android versus iPad is ultimately a religious war. The decision on which side to support should probably be made at the macro level. The differences between this particular Android tablet and the iPad are very small. If you’re betting on Android and want a 10-inch tablet, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 should be at the top of your list.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Review - The Best Android Tablet?
Source: PC Perspective English
While I appreciate the time Samsung spent on the overall quality of the Tab 10.1's construction and design, I would have liked more attention paid to the details in the software and custom apps department. Like many consumers, I have high expectations when I pay $500 for a mobile device. I expect it to do almost every task that my laptop can do, and in some instances, I expect to be more productive too. That being said, the Tab 10.1 met most of my expectations and I think they have room for improvement to make the tablet more flexible to consumer needs so we can integrate the tablet with other devices we use in our personal and professional lives.

Overall, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a hugely likeable device. With its slick performance, lightweight chassis and excellent screen and speakers, it captures the instinctive, tactile appeal of Apple’s tablet better than any rival we’ve seen. It has its weaknesses – notably the battery life – and it’s hardly innovative. But if you can find one in the shops, it’s the best Android tablet we’ve seen, and a compelling alternative to the iPad 2.

Samsung's first 10in tablet is remarkably light and thin, but is it too much of a lightweight for its own good? We take a closer look in our review.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is an attractive purchase: it’s well-built, slim and light, has a valuable collection of quality apps, and sports a comparatively low price. It even fares well in performance benchmark tests against its competitors. However, some of these competitors offer better value by building memory card slots and comms ports into tablets costing roughly the same price. Here, Samsung takes yet another leaf out of Apple's book, as all those niceties will cost you extra.

Slimmer and lighter than an iPad 2, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 proves that Android tablets don't have to be iOS's ugly sisters. It tops off a svelte design with a brilliant screen, decent battery and comfortable-to-hold back. Aside from limited connectivity, its faults are wider Android problems rather than things to level at Samsung and its design team.

Certainly not perfect, lacking in decent apps and not quite the elusive iPad 2 beater we were looking for, Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 is still the best Android tablet you can get. Samsung is charging £399, the same as Apple for the entry-level 16GB version and is selling a 32GB and 64GB 3G-enabled model but wouldn't give us the price on those.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 3G Tablet Review
Source: T Break English
The pricing and availability for the 3G version of the Galaxy Tab is yet to be decided but the Wi-Fi version is selling for the same price as the iPad in the US so expect to pay another $100+ for the 3G version. Question is, would I recommend or buy the Galaxy Tab 10.1 at that price? Honeycomb is still a bit behind and Touchviz doesn’t really smoothen things by much but if I was considering a Honeycomb tablet, it would be very much between the ASUS Transformer because of it’s hybrid nature and cheaper pricing and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 because of its amazing form factor.

While there's no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a fine device, it's these omissions and, ironically, the feeling of Apple-like minimalism that seem to hold it back.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 review
Source: Liliputing English
That said, I’m still not convinced anyone needs an Android tablet. There are still only a few hundred apps designed specifically for this sort of tablet — which means that most of the apps you run on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 are also available for Android smartphones. If you have an Android phone and find yourself constantly frustrated by the limitations of the small screen, or if you want a tablet specifically because you want a mobile device that you can use without increasing your monthly phone bill, I suppose this type of tablet could fit the bill.

Because Samsung customizes user interfaces, it has to customize OS updates as well, in order to keep the user interface experience consistent for the customer—and this takes a while. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 will ship with un-customized Honeycomb 3.1, but Samsung will soon push out an update that will change the way the user interface looks and operates. Samsung reps claim the changes will be subtle, but regardless of how they look, it could be a huge gamble on Samsung's part, and on the part of early buyers of the Tab 10.1. Users accustomed to Honeycomb will have to adapt to the new changes, and of course, when Google pushes out further updates to the OS, Samsung will have to first customize them and then push that update out to its customers. If it's a matter of days or even a few weeks, that's not a huge deal. But Samsung's customers in the mobile phone world know firsthand that Android updates can take a long, long time—months—before the manufacturer deems them ready for release. What you're getting when you buy the Galaxy Tab, in other words, might not be what you'll get long-term.

Whether you go Wi-Fi only or opt for a connected version, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the first Android tablet that makes a credible and successful run at competing with Apple's iPad 2. It matches iPad 2 in design, price, and even that intangible IT factor. Its decision to sacrifice ports is disappointing but not a dealbreaker; heck, Apple's been doing the same thing from the outset. It's more difficult to find tablet-optimized apps at Google's Android Market than at Apple's App Store does, but again, that may not be a dealbreaker. If neither of those constraints faze you, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 may be a good match. It certainly is one of the top tablets available today. And it becomes the flagship Honeycomb tablet for showcasing what Android 3.1 can do.

In conclusion, this is the first time I told myself that I could use an Android tablet instead of my iPad 2. Since Google gave-away the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Limited Edition to all Google I/O attendees, we do not have to send back the device as we do with all the review units – I will use both the iPad 2 AND the Tab 10.1.

Galaxy Tab 10.1 Review (Limited Edition)
Source: Slashgear English
The somewhat plasticky chassis reminds us of Samsung’s recent smartphones, though is the inevitable compromise to the sub-600g weight, and Android still has its tablet-scale flaws, but overall it’s the hand-feel, which convinces us on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. In fact the biggest competition on that front may be Samsung’s own Galaxy Tab 8.9, offering the same screen resolution in a more compact form factor, which arrives later in the year. Feature-chasers should probably opt for the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, but content-consumers looking for the most easily toted tablet will find plenty to like in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Having reviewed both, my view is that the iPad feels sturdier and better balanced from a weight perspective. Whether or not the advantages of an open operating system will be a selling point remains to be seen, but anyone using services like Google Apps will see an immediate benefit.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Hands On
Source: Trusted Reviews English
However, just like the iPad, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 can't make calls. While microphone and speakers are included, they're for VOIP and video chat only. For the latter of those you can take advantage of front facing camera, which is joined back a rear facing 8-megapixel one that includes an LED and autofocus. It was difficult to truly assess its quality but from what we could tell it was about on par with most other smartphone cameras. HD video is also available , just as the device itself can playback Full HD video.

In the tablet wars, it is hard to see how the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will differentiate itself from the rest of the pack. I mean, unless you're really partial to Samsung products, why pick the Tab 10.1 over the Xoom or the G-Slate?

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce ULP (Tegra 2): In Tegra 3 SoC integrated ultra low power GPU. Depending on the model clocked at 300 to 400 MHz.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


2 (250): SoC (System on a Chip) with a integrated Corex A9 Dual-Core, GeForce ULP and other dedicated subprocessors (Audio, Video).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.6 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.
