Samsung Galaxy Tab: Reviewed

After reading about the Samsung Galaxy Tab for what seemed like years (JK, it was only two months) I never thought it would come to the carriers much less to my house.

Bringing about some really neat add-ons, like a camera so you could Skype with friends and Family. It didn’t seem like there was a bunch of room for expansion or further development though, which is what Android seems to have mastered. So it seems only logical that Samsung would take the success we have enjoyed from the Galaxy S line to their consumer electronics devices
