It seems that almost weekly a brand new type of tablet is hitting the industry but how you do know which tablet will fit your needs? On one hand you will find the all new iPad 2 and on the other you've got another new gadget known as the Motorola Xoom. New tablets are being developed and launched very quickly, making it tough to keep up with the latest technology. One tablet which has caught my eye is the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The reason behind this is because its a smaller tablet yet it offers some big features at an affordable price. Listed below you'll discover some of the features that this smaller device brags on.

The Galaxy Tab is included with 16GB of of storage space and has a microSD memory slot if you need to add more onto the default 16GB (you can also add an additional 32GB of space). Its run by Android 2.2, which has a huge app market (Android Market) and it supports flash, which a number of other tablets are lacking on at the moment. The particular display size for this tablet is a good 7 inch's, additionally it is a touch screen as you would expect. While its not the largest of touch screens its surely a fair size, and the plus side of it being smaller sized is it can fit into your pocket very easily. Do you think you could put an iPad in any one of your pockets. It simply is not going to fit. When it comes down to the actual graphics, I know you will concur they are very sharp. Creating video and taking pictures are just a small taste of the technologies in this tablet, you may also utilize it for video chatting. It is WiFi enabled and it has Bluetooth 3.0 features as well. It can also connect to the Internet using a fast 3G connection and the tab is actually GPS enabled, helping you to find real-time directions on a 3D map that moves as you do. A very important factor that really shocked me is the fact that this little guy can easily function up to 13 hours on 1 charge. The point that this tablet weighs a little bit less than 14oz, makes it light and portable and simple to take anywhere.

You can utilize this tablet to surf the web or play games with out ever getting slowed down as this units CPU is driven by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor chip. To enter data onto this tablet you have the on screen keyboard and also Swype technology, that lets you swipe your finger across the keyboard to input a word. As opposed to a regular keyboard where you press each and every key, the Swype technology permits you to keep your finger on the screen and you just swipe your finger to each letter.

This specific unit has been getting great reviews from the actual consumers. Having to upgrade the tablet the coming year isn't going to be a concern, due to the Android OS this tablet is already ahead of the curve. If you are looking for your first tablet or maybe if your looking for one which is easier to carry around the Galaxy Tab is defiantly worth a look.
