Samsung’s Galaxy Tab revealed, on paper it bests the iPad in almost every way

Today is the launch of, well lets be honest, the iPad’s first real competitor. The Samsung Galaxy Tab was unveiled today in Berlin Germany and there is a lot to like about this device. In fact, there is so much to like about the device I went with the semi-controversial title stating that the Galaxy Tab is in fact better than the iPad. Well that is on paper at least. So what does this thing come with? Read on after the break for the full spec list…


Android 2.2 with Samsung’s UI (Touchwiz 3.0)

7″ TFT LCD screen with WSCGA 1024 x 600 resolution

1Ghz Hummingbird Cortex A8 procesor with PowerVR SGx540 GPU

3MP Camera with Auto-Focus and LED Flash rear facing camera

1.3MP Front facing camera for video calls

Comes with some tablet specific apps from Samsung as well as has the stock Android market

Flash 10.1 and HD Video playback

5Ghz dual band WiFi 802.11 n/g

Six Axis Gyroscope, Compass, Accelerometer, light sensor

Memory includes both a 16GB and 32GB model with seperate external memory slot.

512MB of RAM

Size 190.09 x 120.45 x 11.98mm, weighs 8/10 of a pound (380g)

Battery 4,000mAh (7 hours of video playback)

So there are the specs. Yes if you read through each one, it basically is a step up from the iPad in every way. The only question is build quality which, Engadget had some hands on and said that it is comparable to the iPad, and then the question of battery life. It has a big battery and if the video playback claim is any indication, the battery will be great on this device as well. Now if only we could get this device to land in the United States free of any contracts. Still no word on pricing or a specific date this will be available. It was just the initial unveiling. So what do you think? Would you replace your iPad with this? Would you skip buying an iPad all together? If you had the choice, would you still pick the iPad over this?
