The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the first consumer tablet to ship that’s thinner than Apple’s iPad 2. Samsung put in a lot of effort to make a tablet that was slimmer than their primary competitors’ , in the process nixing the original Tab 10.1 (which has since been renamed the Tab 10.1v) and forging ahead with a new plan. The new plan resulted in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which is also one of the first tablets to ship from the factory with Android 3.1... Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Review: Android 3.1 Tablet...

The tablet race continues to heat up. The iPad set the stage for this generation's tablet race, and although things have definitely tightened up, Apple's wunderkind, like it or not, remains the industry standard by which all others are judged. Seasoned technology buffs will likely recall that tablets had another go a decade or so ago, as a number of largely Windows-based, bulky devices hit store shelves. Unfortunately, those products weren't very well thought out -- they were hardly thin, battery life was terrible, and they ran a full desktop OS that wasn't designed... Read more...
Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Tab 10.1-inch tablet will go on sale on June 8 for a starting price of $499 for the 16GB model. However, even though the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available starting on June 8, it will only be available at Union Square in New York. For the rest of us, we'll have to wait until June 17 to get our hands on the tablet. Samsung plans to ship the tablet with Android 3.1. Other key features include a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, and a 10.1-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1280 x 800. The tablet weighs about 1.25 pounds. Samsung has also said that the... Read more...
It looks like Samsung is one company that doesn't have any intention of singing the summertime blues. Instead, Samsung announced plans to ramp up its Android efforts to stay competitive in the growing tablet and smartphone markets, which includes releasing new Galaxy Tab models this summer. The new versions of the Galaxy Tab will come in two other sizes, including an 8.9-inch slate and a 10.1-inch model. Both of these will sport the latest version of Android (Honeycomb), with the 10.1-inch version shipping in June for $499 to $599. In speaking with The Wall Street Journal, Samsung says it expects...

Nvidia's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has given his opinion on the Tegra 2 products currently for sale, and he's not particularly pleased. Glancing at the market, it's hard to blame him. Motorola's Xoom—easily the highest-profile Tegra 2 tablet launch thus far—launched without Flash support, a functional microSD slot, or support for Verizon's 4G LTE network; early adopters had to ship the unit back to Motorola for appropriate hardware to be installed. Initial reviews noted that both the apps and operating system were unstable, a problem Google has since blamed on the Xoom's rushed launch. The... Read more...
Wowsers! It's not often that courtroom battles are interesting, but we're guessing that this is one of those rare occasions where it will indeed have the eye of the tech world for some time to come. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple (yes, the company that makes the iPad) has just sued Samsung Electronics (yes, the company that makes the rival Galaxy Tab). That's no small deal, and it could open up an entirely new can of worms when it comes to companies "taking inspiration" from similar products. According to the report, Apple has sued Samsung "claiming the Korean electronics giant copied... Read more...
Around this time last year, all we could do was talk about all the upcoming tablets that manufacturers kept teasing us about with press releases and leaked photos. What a difference a year makes. It's still slim pickings out there, but unlike last year, there's more than just Apple's iPad to choose from. If you're looking for something smaller than a full sized tablet, yet larger than a smartphone, Samsung's 7-inch Wi-Fi only Galaxy Tab is now available for $350. If you head over to Samsung's website, you'll find a handful of e-tailers carrying the device, three of which list the item in stock.... Read more...
CTIA Wireless 2011 is underway in sunny Florida, but this year's show is a good bit different than shows of the past. Why? Because mobility is expanding. Rather than just focusing solely on cellphones and smartphones, this year, we're seeing a lot of tablets debuting as well. Many of today's big tablets ship with integrated 3G services from a major carrier, making them ripe for introductions at a wireless trade show. Samsung was on-hand at the show to introduce two new tablets, both in the Galaxy Tab line. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 were unveiled...but wait, wasn't the latter just introduced...

It seems that Samsung Galaxy Tab buyers are experiencing a huge amount of buyer's remorse, after purchasing the devices. Perhaps they've heard about the Motorola Xoom and Honeycomb. At any rate, ITG Investment Research says that 13 percent of Galaxy Tab purchases have been returned overall, with the holiday shopping season showing a higher number, as much as 16 percent. ITG tracked point-of-sale data from the Galaxy Tab’s November debut through Jan. 15. When you consider that the return rate for the iPad at Verizon since its debut on the carrier is just 2 percent, that's a pretty bad comparison.... Read more...
There's no doubt that the Galaxy Tab has done quite well or Verizon, and for Samsung. While this 7" Android tablet has found a home on all four major U.S. carriers, Verizon Wireless now has one thing that no other competitor has: access to an LTE Galaxy Tab. That's right -- at CES 2011, Verizon and Samsung Mobile came together to announce the first 4G LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab. This marks the first LTE tablet launch of any kind on any carrier in America, and we're sure it's just the first of many to come. It will ship with a 1024x600 WSVGA display, Android 2.2, Adobe Flash 10.1, a 1.2GHz Cortex... Read more...
Sprint is planning to expand its tablet portfolio next year in an effort to attract business customers who want to replace laptops with lower cost, more portable tablets. "There's a lot of interest in tablets, a greater degree of interest and faster adoption than I've seen in any other product," Paget Alves, Sprint's business markets President, told Reuters in an interview. "I can't think of anything that's moved this quickly." Alves also said businesses are considering tablets as a replacement for notebooks for employees such as salespeople who need to view corporate documents but who may not... Read more...

There's no doubt the Apple iPad has taken the market by storm. Although tablets have been around for some time, no other manufacturer has managed to create the same level of demand for a tablet like Apple has created for the iPad. These days, it seems everyone wants an iPad—kids included. Of course, other manufacturers aren't going to let Apple be the only competitor in this hot market. There are a number of tablets in the works, many of which will run on Android, the first solid competitor it seems, to Apple's iOS. Today, we're going to take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
