Judging by the lawsuits flying around, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been the only Android tablet to seriously worry Apple. Quite why is a mystery, because it has sold in nothing like the numbers of the iPad. Will the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 prove more of a threat by being cheaper rather than better? Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Take …
So for half the price, this would be better than a nexus 7?
Shame Samsung aren't selling at a loss to get their films/books/tv shows into the palm of our hands...
"... selling at a loss to get their films/books/tv shows into the palm of our hands."
I wonder why someone like Sony hasn't done this? They could team up with an estalished (and non-competing) internet payments processor like Visa or Paypal and deliver content using an iPlayer-like app.
It has a wonderfully plasticky feel to it ummmmmm.
they're just lucky Google decided not to release a 10 inch variant of this nexus thingy. It'd be 300 quid, no sd card, but the rest of the specs would leave Samsung sitting in the starting blocks, smoking dope.
Re: too bad
And that may not last. A search for "Nexus 10" throws up some claimed evidence that Google has ordered a load of 10" screens.
It seems that Google is making it hard for anyone else to profit from Android tablets.
A search for Alien life will also throw up some claimed evidence, as will one for a 7" ipad.
It can't all be real (although I do hope google will do a 10" Nexus pad)
My 18 month old Viewsonic g-tablet scores 6426 in AnTuTu, and it cost $249 then. Can be had on ebay for about $150.
Just like with crap cars, it's depreciation on a huge scale.
Value For Money
Samsung usually provides this in spades with other tech, they can't get tablets right tho.
This is overpriced and far too late to the market, it should have been kicked last year as a refresh for the tab 10.1, not now as the Tab2.
Does anyone else...
...think that the "mini-apps" look like WebOS's (PalmOS's) "app cards"?
All sammy needs is another kick in the patent-pants.
Knocking down the processor should help in bumping the battery life up, so I guess I think that's OK.
Alas, I've no AnTuTu benchmark score for the first generation Tab to hand
I have a galaxy tab 10.1 to hand and here are the numbers
TOTAL - 4907
Now playing 2012 mkv
I wonder if that's a legitimate copy of 2012 playing in the video player that supposedly handles all codecs
Re: Now playing 2012 mkv
It's only the 3 minute trailer.
There are also some decent pre-installed apps...
I wouldn't mind crapware on tablets as long as it can be removed without having to root the device.
