Just a day ago Samsung introduced its Galaxy Tab, and from the looks of this 7-inch Android-powered tablet, it seems like it might be the first true Apple iPad contender.Samsung Galaxy Tab and Apple iPad are 2 great tablets.I think that it will be a close fight between Samsung Galaxy Tab and Apple iPad.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is based on Android OS, i.e. the latest one 2.2 version named Froyo.
According to Samsung, the Tab will come to Europe this month and to the U.S. “in coming months.” But at least the company showed an actual working device at the IFA trade show in Berlin. In anticipation of the Galaxy Tab’s availability, we put it side by side with the Apple iPad to see how they stack up specwise.
Despite a lot of similarities between the two products, there are some obvious differences that stick out like a sore thumb. The Apple iPad towers over its opponent in terms of screen size, memory capacity and battery life. However, the Samsung Galaxy Tab gets a few crafty jabs in by way of its compact and lightweight design, its ability to function as a mobile phone and its camera and video calling capability.
