both are great

hmm, with the a Super AMOLED version, a 10.1-inch flavor, and a tablet-tuned Android, just hit Verizon retail for $599.99, really stunned, but Im not really caring about a comparison to the ipad, there must be lots of folks think so? Well, ipad more likely a consumer electronic, a great portable movies, videoes and game device, at least now Im sucked in movies watching on it in the help of iFunia iPad Video Converter, and now Game center, be a great game playing platform, of course the E-mail and surfing internet or do some office work on it are also handy and convenient.~~~Well, but the Galaxy Tab got its features and superiority and must be on fire too, time will prove that... In a word, both are winsome, the ipad has time superiority, an...

Pricey

I don't know why they even bother release a device with this price. I would pick an ipad instead.
It's only 100 dollars more than the 16 GB iPad, and about the same price as the 32 GB iPad.

Tablets in general tend to be pretty pricey.

positioning itself...

I don't know how a 7 inch tablet is going to look sitting right next to the 4.3 inch screen on the Droid X.

Especially with the better layout of the X and nearly identical specs other than screen size.

If your going to get a tablet, why would you buy one roughly the size of your smartphone anyway?

And on top of that, are any applications on Android optimized for a tablet form yet? Is the OS, or even the skin adequately optimized for a tablet form? I'm thinking probably not, hence the smaller screen size than normal for a tablet.

Who knows. I'm still interested, just doubtful that it will be a huge success.
My thoughts exactly, although the dual cameras on the tablet is a slight advantage. I do agree though, I might as well get a Droid X and save myself a few hundred dollars on the equipment pricing.
Most apps should scale just fine providing they were coded properly and not hard coded for specific resolutions.

Froyo isn't optimized for tablets, but samsung spent some time reworking several key apps (email, calendar, etc) to make sure they look...

1) Apps are gonna be ugly. It's bad enough on a lot of Android devices, it's gonna be horrendous here.

2) Who knows why they chose 7 inches. The iPad's screen size is about perfect- it doesn't feel like a 'portable-ized' device, but rather the best...
