Overview of Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 - 16GB
The Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 is without a doubt the first true rival to the Apple iPad. With a 7” screen it’s not quite as big as the iPad, but it does have several features that the Apple device does not and looks sure to be a heavyweight contender in the up and coming world of tablet devices
So how does the Galaxy Tab differ to the iPad? Firstly, it runs the Android 2.2 FroYo Operating System out of the box. This means it will have the usual array of Google apps at its disposal, including Google Navigation, Google Goggles and Google Places. Of course, there’s also access to the Android Marketplace and its ever-growing supply of apps and games.
Another feature that sets the Galaxy Tab apart from the iPad is its ability to make and receive voice and video calls. Combine this with its SMS/MMS/Email capability, as well as full Office documents compatibility and you’ve got a device that can do work as well as play. This powerhouse feature set is packed into a design that is just 11.4mm thick and it doesn’t end there.
The Galaxy Tab will feature 16GB on board memory and MicroSD expansion up to 32GB, giving you plenty of space to store movies and music. The 4000mAh battery will provide approximately 7 hours video playback, meaning well over 10 hours for moderate device browsing. The P1000 also supports Flash Player 10.1, another feature that is not included with the iPad.
To add to the already impressive specification of the Galaxy Tab is a 3.0 MP Camera with an LED flash and a front facing camera for web chat. There’s also an eReader for newspaper, books and magazines, Swype text input and 3.5mm headphone jack. There’s also a great range of forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab accessories to add to this already stunning device.
