Your eyes have never seen such rich, luscious color. And at 1280x800, the resolution is well above normal HD standards. Of course, everything about the Tab is above normal.
Android 3.2, Honeycomb
We don't get much of a choice here in Russia, really only the Iconia, Xoom & the Samsung Galaxy, so far this Iconia is my favourite.
I got the Galaxy Tab over on Friday from a local BestBuy apparent they are not suppose to sell it until Monday. The screen has very wide viewing angle, I looked at the Ipad2 before I looked at the Galaxy Tab, and I couldn't tell the difference based on memory, but I'm sure Galaxy Tab is better. Though the screen is better than the Xoom which I also own.
