Summary: It almost feels like AT&T released the Galaxy Tab on its network just so it wouldn't feel left behind. While it's nice that the Samsung Galaxy Tab is now available on all the major carriers, there's nothing that truly distinguishes AT&T's version from the others (unless you like paying through the nose for international data access). There are no unique apps, and it even lacks the mobile hotspot capability found on all the other versions.
Pros: Bright high-res screen, Not locked into contract, Attractive design, Tablet-optimized apps included
Cons: 2GB monthly data cap, Slow connection speeds in NYC, No mobile hotspot feature
Conclusion: When I used to take this to university with me, I’d always draw envious looks as I scribbled about with the stylus and the device magically transcribed my notes. I could comfortably surf websites, record short videos, listen to online radio – the thing even had a swivel out keyboard if I got tired of tapping at the on-screen one. At the time, it was pure genius.
Summary: Not quite an iPad but still a lovely piece of kit. The screen is that much smaller but of course it will fit in a larger pocket that – unless it’s a poacher’s one – the iPad will not, it is however an office on the move as even without wireless you still have mobile.
