The Samsung Galaxy Tab Poised to Take On Apple’s iPad

Apple has its fair share of both the phone, portable mp3 player and electronic tablet markets, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab may be good enough to at least take on one of those categories.

The Galaxy Tab has many of the same bells and whistles as the iPad and weighs in at 13.4 ounces, nearly half that of Steve Job’s baby.

The 7 inch screen is a bit smaller than Apple’s 9 incher, but hey, who says size has to matter?

The new pad runs on the Android operating system and, while a price hasn’t been released yet, you should expect it to be competitive.

Apple has been selling iPads like iHotcakes and other companies have to be noticing the trend toward an easier to use portable computer device that’s not as clunky as a traditional laptop.

Some will likely fall in love with this tablet, whose specs are clearly superior to the Dell Streak and on-par or slightly ahead of the iPad.  However, it may be wise to wait for Motorola’s upcoming tablet/MID — or the upcoming webOS-powered HP Hurricane and Asus Eee Pad, which may offer a superior Android tablet experience in some respects.

Tablets are here to stay the same way mp3 players were here to stay in the early 2000s. The more people use them, the more they realize they should use them more.
