Lets Compare The iPad And The Galaxy Tab


When it comes to tablets, there is nothing like the iPad.

Well, for one, it is the only tablet currently available (widely). Secondly, with the gorgeous form factor, and iOS, it is pretty hard to beat! I mean, just look at it! But here come the competitors. They are going to be rolling in fast these next couple of months! When Apple literally builds a new market, competition flocks. That is how it was with the iPod and iTunes, and that is how it will be with the iPad and tablets. 

Our first liable competitor is Samsung. They have been pretty public about their planned release of the new Galaxy Tab. They have released a BORING, 10 min video walking through the features of the Tab. Lets compare that to the Apple iPads announcement video. Hmm..

Here is a comparison of the device, and the leader in the market, the iPad.
