went to orange high street store looked for galaxy tab. was told student got 10% off, which means 50 pounds off. 450 pounds should be the cheapest you can get for this mini tablet.

please don't compare with those cheap android pads, this pad uses super TFT, a lot better CPU, ram, has the function of GPS and mobile phone. you can even use it to make a phone call, as long as you put on a bluetooth headset.

I can see that still...no one appreciates the lowest price I found on this item. Why do you have to compare it with IPAD! Why don't you compare it with Alienware M17X! Or Thinkpad W710!

Ipad is nothing but crap! IOS is the stupidest system! android is much much better!

on ipad, you cannot change much of the system, you always waiting for jailbreak or you just live with it; on this pad, flash any homebrew rom anytime you want.
On ipad, there's no GPS chip, on this pad, you get GPS and free google maps navigation.
On ipad, you can not make phone call, on this pad, you can make phone call.
On ipad, no camera. on this pad, yes! there's a 3MEGA camera!
On ipad, bluetooth 2.1. On this pad, bluetooth 3.0!
On ipad, you watch nothing but H.264, on this pad, install a ROCKPLAYER and you are free to watch AVI,MPG,RMVB,WMV,MKV...almost all format.
On Ipad, you always have to use stupid ITUNES to manage your music, on this pad, you don't have to use any,wanna watch a movie, enjoy some music? just copy them into the pad. it can also upgrade to 32GB memory, which Ipad cannot!

So you tell me why this pad should be cheaper than Ipad!just because it's smaller? why don't you tell apple to lower the price of their MBA 11.6 INCH, because they are not much bigger than a netbook and not much more powerful than a CULV LAPTOP!

this pad uses super amoled,



No it doesn't. The Galaxy S phone does but the tablet doesn't.

I'd always try the Galaxy Tab in a shop first, particularly if you intend to use it for web browsing.
The speed for example when scrolling through the BBC desktop site is so sluggish it's almost unsable; though perhaps this may change in future updates. We tried other browsers which helped speed the scrolling speed a little bit; but it was still very sub par compared to Android phones.




It's not a super AMOLED, it's a super TFT. Much better than the cheap android tablets though.

why this over an ipad?

Thanks, already corrected.
Galaxy S, the mobile phone also has the lagging problem and can be fixed by an app called OCLF. Guess this might also works on Galaxy Tab.

Galaxy Tab doesn't seem to have the lag or GPS problems that the Galaxy S has

I'd go for the iPad every time. It's the apps that make it.

Same with phone's. I have an iPhone and an Android phone. I couldn't be without my iPhone and some of the fantastic apps on it.

My Galaxy S has just had the 2.2 froyo update & these problems are now solved.

As someone who has the Galaxy S I know this not to be true, at least in my case Just take a look at XDA-developers in the galaxy S forum

Calm down mate, its just a piece of tech.

Without wanting to upset you anymore, tablets have been around long before Apple and Android jumped on the band wagon. Most of them were more configurable and could do much more then IOS or Android.

However (aside from the obvious technological advances which have made tablets more plausible), useability was always an issue. IMO IOS is not stupid, but the better suited of the two OS's when it comes to tablets of this kind. The UI is far better thought out and coherent/consistant accross the OS. There are far fewer bugs, performance is more consistant with less slow downs and halts, the touch UI physics are far more realistic. In the cotext of a device who's primary use is browsing, playing apps/games and watching video's it only has two glaring flaws: lack of flash support and screen aspect ratio (which is the fault of the hardware not the OS).

Before you proclaim me an Apple fanboy, my mobile is a N1. I switched to it from a 3GS primarily for the screen resolution (before the 4G came along).

It costs 200 quid to make no chance of that kinda price!

I tried this today and was blown away, I have absolutley no need for one, currently using a mototrola milestone which is android 2.2 so all id be gaining would be the 7 inch screen. But id still love to own one for messing about! Do what I've done, enter some competitions for one and hope for the best!

id still rather have an ipad

I still think Ipad sounds like some kind of ladies 'downstairs' device . . .

Just to clarify, this is not an "iPad ripoff/fake" etc. Tablets have been kicking doing everything and nothing well for a long time now. The wonderful God Steve Jobs, hallowed be thy name, didnt create them 7 days etc.
