    What? There is no 32GB model on the Currys website!

    That's a really good price. I'd buy one if I didn't already have my Xoom. I think this is the best form factor out of all the tablets currently on the market.

    I assume this is the older model ?

    No, this 8.9inch was released last summer. You're probably thinking of Samsung's first android tablet which was only 7inch and released summer 2010.

    Uhm whats it like, I know GHZ dont mean anything but its 1.0ghz seems a bit low. My phone has a faster ghz dual core

    Nice one

    I've got the 10.1 and its fantastic - for me it beats an ipad everytime, but that does depend on what you want it for

    This has a dual core as well. Shame it has no HDMI port.

    Silly me - was thinking of the Motorola Xoom model. OK, great price for Samsung Galaxy!

    I haven't actually ordered this yet as not sure if it was a good price. I've read it's one of the better tablets but does anyone know if it's better than the xoom bearing in mind the xoom has twice the memory for the same price.

    Alibab: Me too, what's better, this or the Xoom? The reviews I have read would suggest the Xoom is better, especially if you clock the processor, but I haven't seen a direct head to head comparison.
    ronray
    Overall I'd say it's better than the Xoom. Same hardware so same performance in general. Half the flash memory but form factor is better in my opinion and it's much lighter too.

    no sky go yet though

    Best Galaxy Tab available (I have/had almost all of them) and not a bad price.

    I have the GALAXY TAB 10.1 and an ipad and I let the kids use the ipad and I use the Galaxy, its so much more flexible in what it can do.

    Do not touch the Motorola, their non-US support sucks, the Xoom's have little updates and are many months behind the USA counterparts. The support from Motorola looks at everyone non-USA as second class citizens. I have the Xoom, its an OK tablet but would never get a Motorola product again.

    ICS for EU Xoom, possibly by 2013 if at all.
    Alibab
    I think i'm going to go for this one, i've looked more at the reviews and a video and the thr0tt you have helped me make up my mind
    monkeyhanger75
    I have ordered, but will send it back under distance selling regs if it drops in price on the Ipad3 announcement next week (perhaps this price drop pre-empts that?). Been putting off buying a tablet for a long time, but want to make use of free WIFI when on holiday etc and the wife's Samsung Galaxy S2 has always been a great little device, so i'm expecting the tab to be pretty much the same, but on a larger scale (and without the phone function).
