It’s that time again, time to get a completely different perspective than ours from our sister site SlashGear on a device of some measure! This is the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Google I/O limited edition, a device that you know we had a look at in full review fashion back a week ago. Big hits! Then head below to see what Vince thinks of the same situation. Note his unique photo style especially and compare the review to ours.
I’ll be brief here because you know you’ve got our review to guide you as well as a link right [here] to Vince’s full review. What he notes is that the display is brilliant with many viewing angles, it’s comparable to the iPad 2 for thinness and lightness, and that the delay in Samsung’s original announcement of March of this year for a tablet line is quite obviously due to Apple’s newest iteration of the tablet. This tablet, Vince notes, is the thinnest and lightest of any Android tablet of comparable power, thinner and lighter than the XOOM (13mm/730g), G-Slate (12.8mm/630g) and Eee Pad Transformer (13mm/680g).
Vince’s Quadrant came in with a total of 2107 with a CPU result of 6367, he notes that getting stuck with Kies for sideloading apps makes him envious of similar tablets getting straight up USB support, and the cameras are definitely not pro-quality, ending up taking shots much closer to something you’d be alright with uploading to Facebook. Battery life is fantastic he notes, the 16GB price at $499 and 32GB model at $599 are reasonable but may have trouble competing with the $400 Transformer.
Check out the rest of Vince’s review which includes such gems as ” Samsung has made a tablet that feels like a tablet should: science-fiction thin, quality display and lightweight” over on SlashGear and remember that we’ve got a review of our own right here on Android Community.
