    I really would like one of these and hope the hardware fit and finish is better than the T-Mobile Vibrant. Compared to the HTC or Apple, the Samsungs have been a bit plasticy and sort of flimsy. Nothing like a rock solid build.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to see another Android tablet, but does it HAVE to look so iPad-y? While Android folks would know better, to most consumers, wouldn't this just come across as an iPad knockoff (much like how the Vibrant looks like an iPhone)? I LOVE the devices aside from that (Spec-wise, they're just beautiful.).

    …Just my humble opinion.

    I think it looks good enough to fight iPad. For me, I am getting the Galaxy S mobile, but I am not sure of getting this since it looks a bit redudant having 2 Galaxies. Unless I opt for iPhone instead?
