Consumer Reviews

As a current iPad owner who also makes use of the Droid X, I need to say that immediately after spending 15 minutes with this factor I certainly really like it. The size is terrific in that its a signifcantly enhanced viewing knowledge more than the 4.3 inch Droid X screen (which is also terrific) and it is straightforward to hold with a single hand and navigate with the other - an added bonus is that it also fits in a suit coat pocket.
The Microsoft Exchange integration with email/calendar/contacts is seemless and enables for practically all of the functionality provided via a laptop. 1 of the drawbacks of the iPad is its poor integration with Outlook (couldn't delete, move emails while a single a plane operating offline - not a situation with the Tab).
The screen is gorgeous, speed is fast and the Google location services (GPS, Latitude, Maps, Spot and the list goes on and on) are excellent.
I would very recommend this item.
Update - following 1 week of ownership, I really like it even much more. As a person who travels (4 cities more than last five days), I am taking into consideration leaving my notebook home on business enterprise travel with future trips. The positive aspects of the form element cannot be overstated - it fits in my jeans pocket when out casually and in my suit jacket throughout enterprise. It also smartly switches from WiFi to 3G when a WiFi network is not within reach and vice versa (so that you don't unnecessarily consume information by way of your cellular carrier). I also watched a movie on my East to West coast trip - three hour and 13 minute move burned much less than half the battery time. It really is also terrific to be in a position to modify .xls documents when necessary - seamless integration with outlook / attachments.
Definitely really like this factor...

Critique update: Initially my belief was that Samsung has crippled this device, but in fact it has been done by Verizon. The Verizon net web-site explains that NONE of their mobile devices includes the ability to use a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse. Moreover, the T-Mobile model has been reported to work fine with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. I also briefly tested a Sprint model with a Bluetooth mouse, and it seems as even though it need to function -- there was a menu choice to connect to the mouse and use it as a HID (human input device), an option that is not even obtainable on the Verizon model. I wasn't actually able to connect to the mouse, but it is conceivable that it was a mouse incompatibility concern (it really is a Targus N2953), or my batteries were too low.
Steer clear of the Verizon model of the Galaxy Tab. And since this evaluation is under the heading of the T-Mobile model of the Tab, I am changing my rating from three stars to four stars.
I'm surprised Samsung lets Verizon do this, owing to the bad press it really is giving Samsung.
Original post follows.
It's an wonderful tiny tablet. Quick, responsive, light, vibrant screen, and all the Android apps I've attempted run very well on it. It even works as a WiFi-to-3G hotspot out of the box. This tablet is impressive. Too bad it really is been deliberately crippled by Samsung [edit: it was Verizon, not Samsung].
The problem is Bluetooth, which on the Galaxy Tab is usable ONLY for file transfers (the supplied USB cable is implemented for the exact same thing). The capacity to use the Tab with Bluetooth HIDs (human input devices) has been DISABLED. Google put it into Android, and Samsung [edit: no, Verizon] took it out. That implies you can't use wireless keyboards or mice with it. This tablet has the capacity to replace a Computer if only it could use a keyboard and a mouse (but then that's in all probability why Samsung [Verizon] has disabled it: politics, lawsuits, myopia, inbreeding, whatever). I have also attempted 3rd party Bluetooth drivers, but they do not operate. Not yet, anyway.
Bluetooth headsets are also reported not to perform, but what is the point? Samsung [edit: could possibly truly be Samsung] has also disabled the Tab's telephone capability.
European users do not have these restrictions placed on them by Samsung [edit: by whomever]: their units work nicely with keyboards and mice, and as phones. Check YouTube for some videos of this.
From the technologizer net web site:
"Will the Galaxy Tab support Bluetooth HID? Will it assistance Bluetooth headsets or keyboards?
No, and no, said Kim Titus, a Samsung representative. Looks like Samsung's keyboard dock accessory is your only selection."
[edit: T-Mobile Sprint users should be able to use Bluetooth HID with no situation.]
My suggestions? Should really BT HID stay unattainable (I'll report back if I can find a way to fix it), resist the burning temptation to get this fabulous and quite usable but highly costly tablet, and wait a few months for the 7" tablet competition to ramp up [OR get the T-Mobile or Sprint model] -- there are many on the horizon. Attributes on other tablets will enhance in number, and costs will drop. Apple will release the iPad two in 2011, which will undoubtedly have a camera and other good functions you have been waiting for (the iPad already supports the Apple BT keyboard, but no mouse). Samsung will ultimately cave in and present BT HID support in a software program update for the Galaxy Tab, but it will be too late. Prospective users will have taken their cash elsewhere.
