    The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a bad tablet.

    Android 2.2 on a tablet, is a bad tablet.

    A 7-inch screen on a tablet, is a bad tablet.

    ...

    Honeycomb is a COMPLETELY different story; so much so that if Android had the same tablet developer capacity as iOS, I would PREFER an Android tablet to my iPad. IMHO the best tablets are not blown-up phones, nor are they shrunken-down PCs. And if you've seen video of Honeycomb or even used it yourself on a tablet, you'll (hopefully) realize that Honeycomb is not either of those; it is its very own UI, and finely tuned for a tablet experience.

    Samsung isnt that bad, the technology is there and they definately have the right idea, like realistically the galaxy tab itself is way ahead of the ipad simply because of its awesome camera and display *holds for fanboys to critize* but what im saying can be compared to the 360 and ps3, technically the ps3 is way more advanced than the 360, but content wise and functionality wise we just get an inflated psp, like how the tab is an inflated galaxy s

    Agreed. Honeycomb was the Android version I was waiting for to test drive an Android tablet.

    HP has a new DMZ1 super light 3lb gem with the new AMD dual core Fusion chip its awesome! Its as powerful,better battery life and function as a Desktop. Lenovo is coming out with the same thing both under 500 USD

    There are some tablets that are light and decent battery for under 800, In fact lenovo will be putting out one with the new Fusion chip, the AMD fusion chip will change everything in these light notebooks.
    First off don't say I don't know what I am talking about, I majored in computer science and build them for a living. AMD is junk and that chip is a mobile chip. Desktop chips will always be more powerful. They let off alot of heat. Unless they can make the CPU run alot cooler or find a way to get rid off all that heat we will never see such a powerful chip in a tablet.

    The fusion chip with a 5w power usage is impressive and the specs I have seen are as well.

    How can you say the fusion chip is not as powerful or has a lot of heat without reading the specs and tests of the chip or testing it yourself?

    Your assumption that a Tablet cannot have a lot of power is, well unproven and just an opinion, Intel has dual core Atom processors,
    AMD has the new FUsion CHips, low heat and more power per the specs and design.

    I think we need to step back and see if the chip lives up to the hype before we say its trash and look like fools............

    BTW Desktops are DEAD....... Gammers are the only ones really caring about a Desktop, Businesses are server based and with Cloud computing I see Desktops as dinosaurs...... The focus will be on notebooks for gaming ( heard of Alien and ASUS I would think?) and light notebooks for college and tablets are used everywhere already, I used one in medicine for years now, a few have been quite powerful Fujitsu's.

    I use my Desktop for media rendering as well as gaming. I would put my house on the line that my computer blows most AMD rigs out the freakin water.

    Media rendering would be the biggest use of it.

    I got to try the Galaxy Tab for a while. The UI was clunky and the overall build quality looked cheap to me. I agree Honeycomb will be probably suit Tablets much better than Froyo but I wouldn't get a Galaxy Tab for that.

    wow samsung really lol lying to the world like that, and whats with all those investors wanting someone to kill the iPad lol it aint happening till Apple kills it with the next iPad. this really should hurt their stock bad lying to investors and the public like that. Hype up their product to get more to buy it and it turns out a lot of those people are returning it. SMH

    Wow. Another my processor is bigger than your processor thread. The biggest downfall of the Samsung is the 7" screen. You may as well just buy a handheld gaming station.

    I'm not one to gloat - but HA-HAAHAA-HAAH-HAAAAAH!
    Samsung rushing to get ahead of the curve and falling flat on its face again.

    Google warned that Android Froyo wasn't a tablet ready release.
    But no, Samsung wanted to be at the leading edge.

    It can't have done their branding a lot of favours.
    But what makes me laugh is the laughable maneouvring of sites like Carrypad, around the inept elephant in the living room that is Android ... always blowing the Android trumpet - while the iPad community p*$$es itself laughing at the pitiful scrabbling and straw-clutching.

    More of a brand-killer than an iPad-killer methinx.

    Samsung = (the usual) FAIL.

    Someone really ought to tell them that people are content to WAIT for quality.
    An abject demonstration of the folly of the If in doubt, ship it out mentality.

    Be interesting to see whether Samsuck updates the Tab to Honeycomb when it ships.
