    the only word that came out to my mouth…. “WOW”

  3. froyo says:

    Wow that will fit my cargo pants pocket hehe, borrowed this from an article I read earlier, The trade-off of tablet is obvious. You win because you can show a bigger picture, which is important, and you lose because it just won’t fit in many pockets

  9. zurimoto says:

    I love this tab way better than ipad when it comes to specs but ipad is
    Way better in apps.. Also android is not so good esp. If you are downloading too many apps. It slower the process..

    Pagiipunan ko talaga to!

  14. Ryan Ang says:

    does this have the same pixel density as the Sony Vaio P series? parang masakit sa mata.. This I would have to check out first before giving my verdict hehe

    Spec wise I would say it’s a great tablet (finally hindi na -pad yung pangalan)

  15. arnold says:

    Price could be in the range – $800 to $1000.

  16. ian says:

    hmmm ganda, pwede kaya magtext jan?

  17. H says:

    Interesting. Im frustrated with my iphone’s worthless bluetooth and lots of limitations(u know). This might be a great alternative to the ipad. Looks pretty too.

    prang sapatos na ah… can’t wait marinig sa smartphone vendor “kuya, anong size po?”

  19. manong says:

    baka mabasa ni steve jobs ung comment ko tungkol kay mura at mahal ksama n c dagul.. next year ilabas na nya ung 3g version ng ipod nano.. ang iPhone uNano!

  20. skagen says:

    nakow may bagong pagpipilian nanaman! good job on samsung side for releasing their own tablet.

  21. Herce says:

    I like it. Does it have USB host? If so I am getting one.

  22. nexusboy says:

    wow that looks really nice. the apps won’t be that bad, considering its got Android’s Marketplace!

    i personally do not require a tablet for now, quite satisfied with my Nexus One. i probably might need a bigger screen next year, and the worthy phone replacement for me is DELL THUNDER! so willing to wait in its release rumored to be early next year!

    by the way, good “Job” Samsung! the Galaxy Tab turned out so much better than I expected. *applause*

  23. char says:

    wow!!i want one!!sana hindi mahal..

  24. xxholicxx says:

    samsung labas lang ng labas ng products, nangagaya lang

  25. chl says:

    It has a camera! How true is it SRP US$300?

  26. rporter says:


    What’s your bases on this?

    “.. Also android is not so good esp. If you are downloading too many apps. It slower the process..”

    I’m an Android user and I never experience this.


    I’m confuse whether to but a new laptop or this…

    I love Android. Hope Samsung will support an update for this when Gingerbread 3.0 is officially out.

  27. Vidar says:

    If they can come up with a better and more affordable product, why not?

  28. pabs says:

    This is it. I’ll get one.

  29. Yette says:

    Can’t wait for this one. I love the android OS & I hope it wont be as pricy as the iPad.

  30. Nomer says:

    I can’t wait to see this gadget here in the Philippines..

  31. junp says:

    I think this will be priced above the galaxy S.

    for sure laki na nman ng gastos ko this christmas…. sana mura lang

  33. Winner says:

    nice! pero pano kaya ang app support nito? yung sa apple app store kasi daming choices. apps/softwares makes a big difference imo

  34. Winner says:

    ahh android pala

  35. Ryan Ang says:

    well I was hoping this would be inexpensive oh boy was I wrong :P


    and that’s Euros a not USD

  36. petken says:

    Mas mahal talaga ang prices sa Europe… Mas mura yan pag nasa US na…

  37. Ryan Ang says:

    pricing scheme is usually the same amount but different currency. but we’ll see how Samsung will pit this against the pricing of the iPad, maybe when they pair this with a carrier then the subsidized price would make it more inviting.

    there are rumors of the tab pairing with verizon.

  38. Arvee says:

    @Ryan Ang – Agree! Wala masyadong difference especially when we are talking about prices in the Euro currency vs. US Dollar currency. About $20-50 lang ang minura (sounded wrong haha) sa US ng mobile phones. And about $80 sa laptops.

    Basta mas mura sa iPad, this is definitely a good buy considering its size factor, specs and of course, the Flash support.

    I doubt this would kill the iPad (sa dami ba naman ng fanboys, pero malay natin) but I’m pretty sure the Galaxy Tab can go head to head in terms of features, sales and customer satisfaction with the iPad.

  39. Gwapito says:

    According to Yahoo! It’s 300$, probably around 18k to 20k pesos in the Philippines.

  40. char says:

    ^how i wish nasa range nga na yan..if not papabili na alng ako abroad..deym really want one.

  41. char says:

    ^how i wish nasa range nga na yan..if not papabili na alng ako abroad..deym it’s really pretty!!

  42. ed says:

    ^Telco subsidized yata yung $300 price.

  43. jhunie says:

    micro sim din ba ito? yung voice calls thru sim card ba o may apps pa like skype?

  44. mr.bogus says:

    archos 9, n900, and samsung galaxy tab is my best choice as of now!!!!

  45. limuelG says:

    like it talaga!!!!

  46. Sed says:

    tingin ko between 35k+ – 50k price nyan satin kasi yung samsung Wave nila 20k.Yung Galaxy S phone naman 30+ with contract. Mahal T.T

  47. vente says:

    Possible bang makadetect yan ng Portable HD such as Samsung G2 Portable? un lang nmn importante pra sa extra storage eh.

    I’ll buy that for sure pag pwede sya sa samsung G2 ko. it would be like a mini pc for media and browsing on the go.

  48. ronald echon says:

    Amazon puts Samsung Galaxy Tab on sale for £799…
    magkano kaya sa Pinas… Hay naku, kung december pa ang release dito, late nanaman tayo… wahehe, reklamo ng di makapaghintay, ilang araw na akong tumitingin ng updates. araw-araw na didisappoint ako.

  49. Leo says:

    i’ll get this one for sure once it’s released here sa Pinas. I don’t need a laptop for i already have a powerful desktop at home. what i need is a mobile device for internet browsing on the go and ebook reader. laptops are a trouble to carry around.

  50. private says:

    hi guys,

    am planning to give up my HTC Desire & BB Curve 3G for this. I would like to know if I can link my FB info to the Contacts list of the Galaxy Tab? I am enjoying this feature on my HTC & BB hope it is. thanks..

  63. I simply desired to appreciate you yet again. I am not sure the things I could possibly have accomplished without the entire concepts provided by you about such industry. This was a difficult concern in my opinion, however , finding out a new specialized avenue you dealt with it took me to leap for contentment. I am just thankful for the assistance and as well , believe you realize what an amazing job you happen to be carrying out teaching most people by way of your website. Probably you’ve never encountered any of us.
