What You Need To Know
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is just as thin as the iPad 2, making it the thinnest Android tablet on the market.
The Tab also weighs less than the iPad 2 but does not come with expandable memory or an HDMI out (unless you buy the dongle for $40).
The Galaxy Tab has the same Android version as other Android tablets, which worked well.
The touch screen feels a little more responsible than most of the other tables we've reviewed (aside from the iPad).
There aren't any custom overlays or widgets unique to the Tab.
You can still customize just like you would any other Android tablet.
The tablet can also keep up with the iPad 2 when running apps or browsing the web: it was just as fast as any other tablet when launching Angry Birds Rio.
The web browser was also just as fast.
The front and back cameras were almost as good as we hoped.
The rear camera is only 3 megapixels but the flash even exposes and it can record HD video.
The picture quality turned out to be pretty good, too.
The front camera is 2 megapixels and looks just fine.
