Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 2012-01-25 23:38 UTC



OS:
Just got this tab. It was preinstalled with Android 3.1. It crashed overnight for no reason. In fact it crashed everyday for no reason - while on standby.
After an update to Android 3.2, it stop crashing.

Feel:
Its very slippery.
The glass face is very slippery.
The plastic back is very slippery.
It will slip off your hands unless you get a case for it.

Build:
It feels solid. It feels heavy.

Size:
It is about the size of a netbook of the same screen size. It fits in a case designed for a netbook, but very loosely.

Bluetooth accessories:
It connected to my Logitec DiNovo Mini right away. I was able to type on the keyboard and move a mouse pointer with the built in touch pad.
I was able to pair the tab with my printer but it would not print. When I try, I get a prompt that tells me it can only print to Samsung printers.

Sound:
There are two speakers. The stereo sound was good in a room and perhaps outside if its not loud.

Cameras:
There are two. The camera app lets you take pictures with either the front or rear cameras. They can be switch with a single tap.
There is an LED flash. The LED can be used as a flashlight. I found many apps that let you use the LED for this function.

Expansion:
There is no option to plug in an SD/micro SD card. They sell an adapter for adding a micro SD card. There's also an adapter for plugging USB devices such as a keyboard, mouse, or USB Flash drive. Which is kind of messy. Those should have been built in. I would stick to bluetooth accessories.
