Maybe flexibility in an OS isn't a benefit. I mean, hell, we could all be running KDE and set it all up however we want, but, as it turns out, most people want simpler, at least in their tablets.
And, by the way, the sales numbers don't lie, Android tablets right now are just not selling.
I'm calling shenanigans.
The face of the galaxy tab looks damn identical – from the line of chrome trim, the border of the screen, everything looks like it's a kludgy iPad – The faux dock connector included (COME ON – http://lh4.googleusercontent.com/public/vr5D1YqKh6DfT-R2r6RugeEVD-ejFYD2eHknRa6bYysh51E4R9VsZC-2wEGG8VxLo3yOd3Z1UsZ2pNgMvbsh-o1wOSMqQ6J3oabwXgBurJxId1aJjFQf5EJS0lYb1FcV0N8ChQaSNLDokmwU5YLE8TRgl9dWCTgZ_Ilae0GosXRnpQ) Holy long url batman.
I've held one and played with it – The UI differences are apparent pretty quickly, but I'm not my mother, who probably would not be able to tell the difference between a galaxy tab and an ipad.
My impression is that it really is a shitty ipad ripoff, it feels cheap in-hand, the bezel with its thin strip of shiny metal does strike me as an obvious attempt to mimic the ipad.
