Galaxy Tab 10.1 Review - Galaxy Tab Forums
Its been a few months since the Galaxy Tab 10.1 became available for Verizon Wireless, and I think its about time I share my thoughts about the tablet. Verizon let me play with this bad boy for a few weeks and I think its only fair that I give you guys a quick overview of my experience with the "iPad killer."
First off, I'll explain to you why Apple is suing Samsung over this tablet. If you have never held a Galaxy Tab 10.1 before, this is for you. The Tab 10.1 feels like perfection in hand. The screen feels just big enough, and the video quality along with browsing experience is unmatched by any other tablets I have ever used --I own an iPad 2(I use as my glass coaster), and a TouchPad(another coaster). In comparison to the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the iPad 2 is lacking in screen quality, size, weight, and speed. Apple is suing because now they are actually afraid about what Samsung is doing, and they have to make sure they don't take away anymore sales from them.
Now on to my quick review.

- Device speed
- Verizon LTE (worst days, I get 20Mb down) ROCKS!!!

Would I buy it?
I can honestly say that it helps a lot that I did not pay the $700+ price-tag to buy this without a contract from Verizon. At the end of the day, I think this is a great device, I would buy it if I could afford it; but we aren't all rich enough to afford that. In my situation, I would not buy this simply because the sticker price is too much for me. Also, the LTE price is around $30-$50 a month (I never sign contracts).
Would I recommend it?
Absolutely; This is by far the best piece of technology I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with, and while I cannot afford it, I would recommend it for business men and school students that can. I am a student myself, and this was one of the best text books I have ever used.
