Looking a new or perfect condition Galaxy Tab.

Please keep in mind that new ones currently sell at numerous places for £399 with some offering further cashback.

Please also mention if the £200 Samsung incentive scheme has been used at all.

Please post offers. Thanks.

Do you know if they definitely pay out 15% (or even 10% as per one of the deal threads) on the Galaxy Tab?

If so I may as well get a new one for £350 there.

Thanks.

The problem is the list of exclusions they put and it includes mobile devices.

I'm afraid I only yesterday sold an iPad 16GB wifi version to get one of these.

The Galaxy Tab isn't classed as a mobile device on their website, it's classed as a tablet computer. I think they exclude mobiles because the mobile tab redirects you to Carphone Warehouse.

If you have any patience and common sense then you'd wait til March for the MOTOROLA XOOM voted best at CES Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.

1280 x 800px, 10.1" display, ANDROID 3.0
NVIDIA Tegra 2: 1Ghz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM
5MP camera on the back with 720p recording at 24fps , 2MP on the front
16GB expandable to 48GB

Completely took CES into account. No decent android 7" tablets have been announced. Secondly if the Xoom comes in at under £499 I'll be very surprised.

1024*600 isn't likely to be improved upon for a 7" tablet and whilst Tegra is good, the graphics ability is about on par with SGX540 contained in Hummingbird. The dual core A9 processors are better mainly by virtue of being 2 cores, when comparing to A8 chips, however power consumption will have to rise since it still uses a 45nm manufacturing process.

Finally Honeycomb should be coming to the Galaxy Tab.

£350 now or £xxx for Xoom when and if released in the UK?

Honeycomb requirements

I agree the processor is on a par until future software fully utilises dual-core. But as you know the Galaxy Tab doesn't have 1280x720, only 1024x600 and that in itself could limit it to becoming a Gingerbread.

Verison US just announced a new 4G LTE enabled Tab with a 5 Megapixel camera.

The FREE £200 entertainment package promotion runs until 28th February 2011.

Those requirements were the figment of someone's imagination.

The thing about the 3mp camera is, I have a high end smartphone already, don't really need the tablet to be taking pictures. The Verizon version will have a 1.2ghz processor which is interesting, however I'm sure that will be copied over into custom Galaxy Tab builds in very little time.

Maybe I will regret spending £350 on the Galaxy Tab right now, but I can't see the Tegra 2 tablets from the big manufacturers being substantially less than £500.

What does the Galaxy Tab do and offer that your smartphone doesn't, other than entertainment and reading on a bigger screen when out and about?

Much better browsing device, something I found I was using the iPad for all the time (missed having Flash a lot of the time). Secondly I have numerous textbooks which I'm learning from currently. As you've said its a good multimedia device, really useful on commutes.

Something which I used for hours on end with my iPad is using remote desktop software to control my computer. I will be getting this on the Galaxy Tab but with much more portability.

But yes, a lot of stuff which were not used (on the iPad by me) are things like photos (although was handy the few times I had to show albums), email. I will miss a few things from the iPad though. It had an app for the Economist magazine which I used a lot. The iPad does have better apps for when you want to waste some time, but I'm not too bothered about that.

Probably worth it for you if your going to spend quality time each day using it for browsing and reading.

I don't commute so for me personally my 4" smartphone display is plenty for what browsing I do and multimedia etc.

I am more excited by the new Sandy Bridge processors by Intel. Here is an example of SAMSUNG making something truly awesome!

Not sure. You can get pretty good thin and lights for a lot less than $1599 these days. New gen SSDs also seem to be coming in at very good prices as well. Have a feeling Acer/Asus will be coming out with more competitive ones with Sandy Bridge.

edit:

I quite liked the look and price of the all aluminium Vostro V130 for example. I'm sure the processors will be upto SB soon.

Undoubtedly competition will stifle prices. By and large that has what has been missing for tablet computers. I opologise for being so critical in this thread but it is with good reason - the Galaxy Tab is very expensive for stop-gap hardware and software!

I am sure if you play the waiting game within a couple of weeks someone will pop up here willing to sell for around £320 and with the FREE entertainment promotion it might be a good purchase.

Yep, you are right. Looking at what happened to Advent Vega resale prices, competition is definitely lacking. I'd be surprised if the Galaxy Tab was selling for much more than £250 after the promotion is over. The promotion probably has a £20-£50 cash value depending on the person.
