Galaxy Tab

So at Gitex Shopper 2010 i bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab

And as promised in the Last Post about Gitex , here is a Review about it


First of All i bought it for 3,900 UAE dirhams , my Visa statement said that is equal to 250 KD , and that price is for a Tab with no contract ( You could buy one from Etisalat UAE for 1900 with the 1 year Internet Contract )

Its a 7 inch tablet , here it is with my Nexus one for size comparison


with Android operating system , 16 Gb Model , the one i had was loaded with fryo 2.2 with a Middle East Build

the Build

Sadly that build has some drawbacks

– No Android Market

– Arabic letters are not connected

Things i like about the Tab

– Android System

– Size , it fit in a pocket ! not too huge or too small , after some typing in twitter using it , i find it harder to use my Phone

– Phone Ready , normal SIM card , not micro for easier switching between Phones

Things i don’t like about the Galaxy Tab ( other than the problem with the build )

– it has its own USB cable ( not standardized Mini or Micro ) and it didn’t charge while connected to the the laptop

– Micro SD is the only to Expand memory , wish there was normal USB for flash expansions

Big shout out to Suzani Love for a custom Bag for the Tab
( I had no bag and everywhere i went all the bags / Sleeve are 9+ inch for Ipad only )
