SamsungMobile just recently uploaded a new clip to its YouTube channel about the new in-the-works Samsung Galaxy Tab.
To all those who don’t know what this is, it isn’t the new Galaxy Vibrant Smartphone that Bell is offering or the rumoured Galaxy Apollo mobile phone that Telus might offer. The Galaxy Tab is an alternative to the already well-known iPad (you probably know what this is since you’re here).
One of the main differences between the Tab and the iPad is the accessibility of a dedicated App store. What’s a smart device without the use of applications? We all know that when running iPhone/iPod Touch apps on the iPad, the graphics are just forcibly made bigger unless the developer decided to revamp their app.
It’s to be noted that W.P. Hong, director of mobile products for Samsung, said “Since we emphasized portability and mobility, our determination was to apply smart phone platform instead of tablet platform.”
Does this mean that they won’t spend much time asking developers to update their applications for tablet sizes? An extra growing pain that Samsung has that wasn’t much of a problem for Apple is the inability to contact app developers directly. With Apple’s structure of everything being done within one company, developers have a much smoother experience than having to go over the hurdles of Google (Android) and again with Samsung (Galaxy Tab).
With all this said though, the video shows the Galaxy Tab as a pretty sweet device. Having an awesome interface, camera, and video calling, the Tab is worth a look at. Competition will only make the iPad evolve into something awesome no? I definitely wouldn’t mind trying one of these Tabs…
