KT's Android Based iPad Rival Debuts
It's been a busy week in the tablet marketplace. Then again, with such a scarcity of other tablets to discuss in this market of 1 over the last six months, any tablet news that doesn't involve the iPad is, in effect, big news.
KT, South Korea’s largest fixed-line operator, and the country’s second-largest mobile carrier by revenue, unveiled Monday plans to offer its “Identity Tab” tablet PC in early September.
KT says that it is “definitely thinking of launching the iPad in Korea,” but for now, the “Identity Tab” is somehow a greater priority. Don't even try to figure that one out.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the “Identity Tab” will come with a $23 price tag for a two-year KT contract. It will cost you just over $400 without any contractual commitment. According to the WSJ, most consider the KT tablet to be rather "cheap" when compared to the minimum $600 price tag for an iPad or Samsung’s Galaxy Tab in that part of the world.
So, without question, KT will have some stellar competition in the region. As the Journal notes, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab will be offered through SK Telecom, "KT’s main rival in the mobile market," in September. To add to the mix, LG’s tablet will likely also debut sometime during the fourth quarter.

I'm going to dub this an automatic fail until it turns into an iPad killer.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

it will always be specs vs os
apple may not always have the best specs but they do by far have the best os in ios

24 hour refund policy? meh. Are you REALLY going to carry around a tablet device for pictures when you have a BETTER camera on your iPhone? (no would be the answer). JAILBREAK?
Read this article about Android and open-source
What is Open-source and is Android really open-source?
08-31-2010, 05:25 PM #16
People really don't understand the open source thing. It's not like 99% of Android users have any clue how to write code or develop their own apps, they pretty much do what everyone else does with their close-source phones.
But being able to change fonts and having a big settings menu helps kids think they're hackers!To live, you have to lie
