+ 3.5 per cent cashback at Quidco should bring price to around £433.

Samsung's GT-P1000 Galaxy Tab is a versatile portable device that looks very much like a glimpse into the future of internet tablets.

This media player's 7-inch touch screen is perfectly fit for watching film or online content.

The built-in flash memory is 16GB in size, and you can expand it by up to 32GB thanks to the microSD card slot. These are massive storage capacities for a device that is only 12 millimetres thick!

But the Samsung GT-P1000 Galaxy Tab is also a phone. It features 2G and 3G connectivity, and is equipped with a 3MP front-facing camera. It is of course also equipped with a headphones socket in case you need some privacy, and Bluetooth headsets will work too.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab runs the Android operating system. That means you'll get access to thousands of free applications. And you can run several applications at once with the Galaxy, thanks to its support for multitasking. The limits to what the Galaxy can do for you are just not in sight!

In fact, take a close look at the Samsung GT-P1000 Galaxy Tab and you will see it is a serious contender for another, allegedly revolutionary, media tablet!

Sounds good, if only I had that kind of money to blow on something daft and pointless, hang on where is the credit card :D

Samsung rushed the GT-P1000 out and although a good price this will drop as they are bringing out the GT-P2000 nearer xmas at approx the same cost as the GT-P1000.
Do not know what additions it has but they have had more time to develop the GT-P2000 so should be better all round than the GT-P1000

I would assume he would be referring to this - http://www.t3.com/news/samsung-galaxy-tab-update-to-get-super-amoled-display?=50773

No reference to the GT-P2000 model number mind.

7inch AMOLED screen and dual core processor - either clocked at 1ghz or 1.2ghz - pretty much certain for next.

Plus Gingerbread OS.

Won't be in the next few weeks though.. The 7" AMOLED has only just been demonstrated at a trade show. I reckon it'll be another 6 months before you see a device with one in.

The SamTab's an amazing piece of kit though and the standard screen is one of the best I've ever seen (easily a match for the iPad)

Yes, it'll take any standard sized SIM and if you buy through Currys will be network unlocked.

Unlike Apple, Samsung seem to give good discounts on older models.

How the helll are these things so damn expensive. Apple are, as usual, ripping everyone off with the iPad (and I got one) and I was really hoping that someone was going to come in with a better product for much less money and force Apple to rethink their pricing strategy. Technology improvements and cheaper prices come about by healthy competition.

Unfortunately, this tablet is rubbish and pricey - and yes, I have played with one.

This isn't an 'Apple is best' argument here. My wife bought me an iPad for my birthday for £700 and it's the most overpriced thing I possess. It's hugely flawed, in my opinion, but it does do what it does very, very well. It's well designed and polished, as most Apple products are......but at a price.

My hope was that MS, Sony, etc. would jump on the bandwagon and bring out the device that the iPad should have been (I'm not going into that here) and sell it at a reasonable price. I'm sure that if they did that, it would sell by the bucketload. Unfortunately, the only alternative is Samsung's dismal offering, which is inferior and more overpriced than the iPad - something I thought was near impossible.
Oh, and I have used the Galaxy tablet for several hours before forming the 'it's not too good' opinion.
Can no-one be critical of a product on HUKD without being labelled a 'fanboy'? Are you part of the 'Anti-Apple brigade'?? ;)

Ok I know the pic for me is an Apple Logo and I confirm before I get flamed that I do love Apple Tech. Having said that I am not the type of Apple fan who will buy everything from the company and ignore the rest of the market.

Now I know that from a hardware point of view you are getting the camera and a cellphone for just a little bit more than an iPad.

I played with one of these at Tesco and judging by it's size I can't see loads of people using these as mobile phones, the camera is there but it's also a bit ****.

The screen is fine, but smaller and not nearly as clear as the iPad.

The software it runs on is not fully optimized for tablet type devices (Google have said so and have recommended that manufacturers wait).

Sure it's got flash, but once you use flash websites go down to a crawl and your battery life goes down the tube so you'll probably end up disabling it anyway.

I'm sure that some really good iPad competitors will come out next year, if you can't wait that long get an iPad. This is a effectively a beta test product which is shortly due to be replaced.

Heat added to OP as the cheapest price around for this unit.

Actually you might be suprised to find that these devices are not as cheap to make as one would think, hence the reason that most companies are bringing out 7" models just to get the price near the iPad's RRP.

Apple does have high profit margins on most of what they sell, with the iPad it's more about taking over a relatively untouched market and price wise they have gone in for the kill.

These devices will get cheaper as components such as the screens and flash memory etc come down in price, but by the time we get there Apple will release the iPad 2.
#18
I agree with David....the only one's who will buy this over an iPad are Android die hards. The screen is simply too small, the UI too complex.

Flash? Meh, its simply not a killer app anymore. The world is moving HTML5 and most mainstream sites already support browser's without flash.

I don't know, this just seems to be using apple style pricing to grab some profit before others come out. The archos 101 will be priced at £275 ish when it comes out later this month(though that's not 3g of course) , and there will be loads at that price or lower next year.

Own both iPad and galaxy tab, Ipad is the superior product both in terms of os and user friendliness. Galaxy tab supports flash but is really laggy when on a large web page.

Galaxy tab crashes at least 5 times a day and requires a reset but it is a good size and if I didn't own an iPad I wouldn't be all that bothered about the bugs as samsung will undoubtedly release software update.

Although I won't pass judgement on a product I have not yet held and played with concessions will have had to have been made to reach this price. For many people this will not be a problem and based purely on specs this could possibly be a reasonable competitor. For now we will have to take a wait and see approach.

Have a look at Dolphin HD to replace the laggy browser and LauncherPro.

I agree that the iPad is much more user friendly out of the box, but the Samsung is much more adaptable and configurable to personal prefs.

The screen on the iPad isn't any better (in fact the dot pitch per inch on the iPad is lower than the Samsung)

For me the size of the Samsung is an advantage, it's a great size for an ebook reader (it's exactly the same size as the Kindle)

Other advantages are the built-in satnav and you can use it a wifi-hotspot.

You obviously own one!! It's too small for browsing, it's too expensive for an e-reader and not as good for books as a Kindle, it's laggy, the touchscreen doesn't feel responsive enough, the iPad is available with wifi, 3G and GPS. Also, its too expensive for what it offers.

What the he'll is 'more adaptable and configurable to personal prefs' supposed to mean? I kept hearing this term being flouted about android phones, so much in fact that I went out and bought one......hmmmmmmm. It's not quite what it's cracked up to be....IMO of course.

With regards to the display dot pitch is not everything, although not a bad display it's not an IPS display and the colour gamut is reportedly quite a bit lower than the iPad.

Agree with this post.

Browser: recommend turning the Flash to 'on-demand' rather than always on. This dramatically increases browsing speed and a simple press will give you access to flash video/games
LauncherPro: a great homescreen replacement but not really needed; I find the swiping to be more than acceptable. The ability to put lots more widgets (calendar, weather, email, etc) on the default homescreen gives it the edge for me
Screen size: love the size overall; truly portable which I think is the killer 'feature'
Satnav: again, the size is great for use in the car (satnav is free if you have access to data)
Phone: yes it's too big as a phone but a Bluetooth headset could make this a great companion piece

Having said all that; I still fail to see why anyone would spend money on a tablet unless it offers full laptop OS functionality. However, as an oversized smartphone (using a Bluetooth headset) that doubles as a tablet then this is pretty good, although I fail to understand why networks didn't heavily subsidise the Tab as they do with smartphones by offering a pay monthly SIM contract.

Yes, as an Ereader it IS too expensive, but this is something that'll also browse, play games, movies and music and it's a sat-nav and mifi replacement to boot. There's no problem with responsiveness and the screen is brighter and clearer than my iPad.

It means that if you find something which is flawed, then with it being an open OS, there are plenty of alternatives - I'm not a fan of Samsung's Touchwiz, so I've replaced the launcher with LauncherPro. The Browser can be a little laggy, so DolphinHD is now my main browser.

I want a widget with my calendar displayed, I can do that using Calwidget.. Can you with an iPad? No, of course not.

... the UI too complex.


No, the UI has a lot more options than the iOS equivalents.

You have a simple trade off: usability vs. functionality.

Automatic car: easy to drive, two pedals, pick it as you tend to find driving a chore rather than something for fun (also if you stop + start a lot).

Manual car: fun to drive, but at the cost of three pedals.

This is pretty much the same thing. Apple had to remove things to make the UI easy to use. They keep it this way by filtering any 'inconsistent' applications via their application store. Typically, try and set something like call diverts for different reasoning (out of range, off phone, forward all) and you'll start to see the features missing. They also achieve this by limiting the API options: you can't replace or override any stock applications, they explicitly reject launcher applications. Last I saw, the SMS app doesn't even have a character count (useful when SMS'ing internationally).

Sort of tempted by these new tablets. Whilst i am not an apple fanboy, quite the opposite, i do understand why Apple products are so popular. The user interface is usually excellent and they work beautifully, straight out of the box - simples! Not counting the screen size, anyone buying a new samsung or toshiba tablet expecting an apple ipad experience, is bound to be disappointed. Hopefully in six months time it'll be a different story. I'm going to wait until then. If you must buy now though, this deal does seem to be a good 'un, so heat added.
#36
I bought a 7" chinese knock off tablet for £55, just for internet browsing and ebooks but also to test the waters if I really do want to invest in a better one further down the line. I'd wait after xmas when Android release their updated 3.0 'gingerbread' OS specifically for tablets.
#37
I don't own either an iPad or a Galaxy Tab but have borrowed both for a few days. If I had around £500 burning a hole in my pocked, I'd choose the iPad any day. The screen is bigger (obviously) and clearer, it's more responsive (in speed and touch interface) than the Galaxy and it just feels better quality overall. The only advantage I can see of the Galaxy is that you can use it as a phone (if you want to look like Dom Joly) and it has a microSD card slot. But I still much prefer the iPad.

Just google a few reviews of this unit, everyone wil mention how flash slows down the browser and drains battery life, most of the reviews advise disabling it where possible.

Flash is and remains a buggy resource hog which does not suit mobile platforms.

...if you listen to Apple but certainly not 'how it is' - my phone has had Flash from its release (the first phone to do so) and it's neither buggy nor a resource hog.

That said I've no interest in the Galaxy tab or the Ipad, much prefer the older Vaio P series which offers vastly more than the tablets (including a beautiful high resolution 8in screen) for a similar price and only slightly bigger/heavier.

Plank, the iPad ain't all it's cracked up to be either and it's ridiculously expensive too. But the simple fact is that it's the best of its type on the market at the moment.
