All gone horribly wrong?

They had one in the Lincoln branch on Friday, didn't realise it was pre-release or I might have been slightly less disinterested.

it's still a "how much?" item to me. Even Dixons have 10 inch computers for less than that, and they have a keyboard and perhaps an optical drive slot.

Silly price

299 is the right price.

Or less

Tablet manufacturers are far too greedy and I expect Samsung thinks it is competing with Apple on price at the moment. As does Asus. As does Acer. As does everyone else. The reality will sink in at some point that there are dozens of android tablets and they should be competing with each other and not Apple. I think the dam will break when Google stops playing silly buggers with the Android 3.x licensing and opens it up to all comers.

299?

I'd be baulking at 199 of her Maj's portraits. I mean, it hasn't even got the fobile moan chip in it.

Thumb Up

Yup

I'm really hoping the AndyPad (and AndyPad Pro, which still comes in under £200) will be decent and enough of a success to kick-start the market for non-Apple fondleslabs.

In the meantime, a netbook is the way forward for 99% of users I think.

Tegra-2??

I was under the impression the Galaxy Tab 10.1 would ship with the same processor as the Galaxy S II phone??

With the Tegra 2 chip in the galaxy tab it's pretty much identical to all other tablets out at the moment really.

no thanks

proprietary connections hooooo!

They seem to have run out of good ideas to nick from Apple and have now started to appropriate the things I dislike about them.

Your tablet is bad and you should feel bad!

Next generation screen or all hype?

Supposedly the screen uses a next generation PLS display which improves on last generation IPS displays.

Still waiting...

...on 2.3 for this 7" 3G Tab.

No Samsung, "buy a new tablet" is not an acceptable answer. Especially not some ten inch giganto-slab that won't fit in a pocket.

7" Tab

The 2.3.3 update came out yesterday! Not very well publicised, plus you have to use Kies, and it wouldn't work from my 1.6 gig Sammy netbook, minimum spec is 1.8 gig processor. D'Oh! Fail!

That said the 2.3.3 update for the 7" Tab is a nice one.

I'll stick with my old HP laptop for proper work, my 10.2 Sammy Netbook for basic PC work, and my 7" Tab for everything when I'm out and about!

Just spotted!

Finally. Hope this is the actual 2.3 and not just a tweak like last time. I'll get to uninstall Kies at last.

That program makes iTunes look good. Something of an achievement, that!
