This is my non-scientific review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. It is a direct competitor to the iPad.
The difference in speed between the two wasn't enough to deter me from buying these tablets, but for the tablet "super user," it might be an issue.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 camera is a 3.5 megapixel camera as opposed to the iPad's 5 megapixel. I think the quality is just as sharp in the Galaxy.
- iPad with 32 GB and cellular connectivity: $529 (the retina display is $729)
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: $500
- iPad Mini 16 GB with cellular connectivity: $459
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7: $350
Overall, I think for someone who isn't a "techie" this might be a good deal because it is a little bit cheaper than an iPad when you compare apples to apples. But if you wear a tablet out on a daily basis, you may need to stick with the original. The same holds true for the iPad mini competitor the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7.
