    Yes folks it is already rooted. :icon_ banana:

    I used this one click app from the Market. Just search for "Z4ROOT". I picked up mine form T-Mobile today and this worked perfectly. You will need to enable USB Debugging first though.

    I'm really enjoying it. Just trying to get it all setup the way I like. The T-mobile wasn't too bad about bloatware. I really like the size. I had the use of a buddies iPad for about a week. The iPad is nice, but just too big to carry around with you. The Galaxy is big enough to be just as usable, but small enough to still truly be a mobile device. The Camera takes very nice pictures.

    Couple of little tips. Use a pinch jester on any of the home screens and it will take you to a card view of all of your home screens. Also you'll want to grab Tango from the market if you want to video conference with people that are on different devices.

    Yes, same gmail account and full market. I was surprised to see all my paid apps were also available to download. Guess the apps are tied to your account and not the device.

    It's funny, the DroidX seemed huge when I got it. Now seems small after using the Samsung tablet all day.

    I want to get one, and would prefer Verizon, but even if my boss gives it to me at his cost its going to be over 600.

    I think I might have to just easier til next year and a wifi only version for less.

    The TMo one is tempting, since I get a discount from my other job and could just tether to my X if I need to, but 24X30+400 isn't worth it.

    Decisions, decisions.

    Any links to how you got the Market on the Tab? I'm thinking about getting one and haven't seen anything solid about adding the Market app yet.

    Thanks.

    Stock, Android won't connect to an adhoc network, so most of the wireless tether apps won't work. However, I am connected to my Droid X right now using the Verizon 3G Hotspot app and it works fine. There are also hacks to turn on that app for free, but is a violation of your Verizon TOS, FWIW.

    I'm shocked that its already rooted.
    I was at verizon yesterday to look at the new devices that released that morning, and i really liked the Galaxy Tab. I would pick up one but price is a big issue for me seeing as i just upgraded to a Droid X. I like the fact that your not held to a contract but at the same time i would also like it to be subsidized. I hope they fixed the problem for sales, Verizon's system would not let them sell the device yesterday morning, some sort to glitch.

    Nice.

    I'm still debating if I'm keeping this one.

    It's nice and all, and really makes my Droid X seem small when I go back to it, but the performance seems to be lacking a bit. I was kind of expecting it to be a little faster. I ran Quadrant on it, even though I hate quoting Quadrant scores and it only scored just over 1,000.

    It is a multi-purpose app that allows you to place a widget on your home screen to view / manage several apps thru tabs...calendar, email, SMS, missed calls, facebook, tasks, twitter, etc...it can be a home screen widget, lockscreen replacement, etc...this is my all-time fav app and the one I use the most on my X...

    Here are a couple of links - one is a review and one is to the dev website...

    i just rooted mines just now. I picked my tab up from BB like 2 hrs ago. So far i'm loving this thing. I really love having my work books on here and stuff. Weirdly enough verizon took out all of the eReaders execept for the Kindle app. I believe it was also supposed to come pre-loaded with the Kobo app which i had to install myself
