Conclusion: If you were expecting a symbiosis of mobile phone and netbook due to the Android and Nvidia Tegra hardware, you'll be bitterly disappointed. No touchscreen, no telephony, no Bluetooth, no outdoor suitable display and an extremely limited App availability in the Camangi market demand a lot of willingness compromise from the user. The test model without UMTS tops this in our case. Thus, it can at best be used as a mobile media player.
Pros: Very light, Robust, Long battery life., Silent, No perceptible heat development, Apt supplies, Good keyboard, HDMI, Video rendering absoutely smooth up to 720p, The low weight and the high "don't leave home without it" factor.

See Samsung Galaxy Tab .
