Summary: It doesn't have the latest software and it's way over priced i could've bought a more up to date version way cheaper. Now i'm trying to see if the vender will give a discount towards a trade in for a newer version of a used galaxy tab 2 wich has the more up to date software.
Excerpt: With this product there are more cons then pros. There are far too little amount of apps for the galaxy tab. Also the biggest problem that puts the product's rating really low is the graphical quality. The Ipad has perfect interface quality but on the galaxy tab it looks like a calculator and too little amount of pixels. The product also has very little amount of memory in it and there arn't much apps made for the galaxy tab.
Summary: I'll simply breakdown my review between Pro's and Con's Pro's - The screen. There is simply no screen in the 7" range of tablets that is better than the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The viewing angles are terrific and the reason I purchased it. - The size. In my opinion, the 10.1" is simply too big and screams "look, I have a tablet!" The size is perfect for use as an e-book/reader, akin to a Kindle. Con's - The firmware is not upgradeable.
Pros: It's small, it's fast (mostly) and it has a lot of potential.
Cons: Either the hotspot or the internet connection isn't stable even when I've got 4 bars. The touch-screen takes a LOT of getting used to, especially if you are a touch typist who isn't into texting. Some apps appear to interfere with the Internet connection.
Think carefully about what you want to do with this device

Summary: I also own an IPad 1 to provide context to anyone reading this review. First, I love the size and weight of this tablet. On a quick trip or flight this is very lightweight and very comfortable to read through the kindle app which works very well and syncs up seamlessly when I read on another device that's connected to the internet.
Summary: to get you to buy this TABLET... here's my gripe: buy this TABLET but dont expect android 3.0 OS (gingerbread) update...why? because greedy Samsung wants to make sure people buy the new Samsung Tab models coming out in late June! Why do I emphasize "tablet" at beginning? Because thats what this thing is advertised as and yet it will be stuck with an OS meant for phones!!! adding insult to injury, the cell carriers have disabled the ability of this "tablet" to make calls!
Summary: I bought the wifi version about two months ago. I loaded it up with apps and noticed it kept crashing on me. I sent it back to Amazon and received the new one--same problem. I then read that the wifi version was given a downgraded cpu and that it was inferior to its 3g brother. I went ahead and bought the 3g Sprint version to test it out. I still like the product for its portability and size so I wanted to see if it was that big of difference.
The Galaxy Tab is Great, sweet, okay, and bad *UPDATED*

Summary: *UPDATE! Amazon has the specs wrong for this WIFI version of the Galaxy Tab!!! The processor and the specs are *DOWNGRADED* for the WIFI version. * The process is not the faster/better Hummingbird as advertised, it is an older/slower Cortex processor * It is advertised as Bluetooth 3.0 - it is only BT 2.x * The included Video Chat application Qik does not work at all!! I spoke with a technical service rep two minutes ago, and he confirmed all of this.
Summary: This was my first Android device. Probably won't be the last, but it left a bitter taste in my mouth. I ended up returning the Tab after a few weeks with it. The problems were numerous. 1.) This is the most egregious. The Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi is dramatically lower spec'd than its 3G counterparts. Therefore, every review you can find online does not apply. It has an older generation processor (Arm v7 vs.
