Samsung Tab. Hmmm, something in between an iPhone and an iPad ?
Got to be honest, the first thought I had when handling the Samsung Galaxy Tab was this guy…
……but having done a full review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, actually this is a real competitor to the iPad. In a nutshell the tab is more compact, allows users to view flash and allows users to download. There’s more too… Not one but two cameras enable video conferencing and it’s also possible to share what’s on your tab with a computer screen of TV through DLNA.
