Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Overview
Having had undergone several revisions like cuts the weights, including a redesign to cut thick body, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was present. Selection of a wider screen on the basis of the latest android Honeycomb make tablets girded as the iPad 2 nearest competitor.
When Galaxy Tab 10.1 held by one hand, feels quite light . Perhaps the plastic material that wraps to the body part reduce weight. Compared iPad 2, Galaxy Tab 10.1 0.2 mm thinner and 36 grams lighter. However, the selection of this material does not mean flawless. Plastics, especially in the rear casing feels slippery when held and easily scratched. When matched with the iPad 2, it appears that aluminum iPad 2 appear more elegant and sturdy.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is using 10.1-inch widescreen display, 1280 x 800 WXGA TFT LCD, 149 ppi, 4-way rotation, ambient light sensor. The 16:0 display is so crisp and clear, both outside and indoors. There is an automatic display settings, adjust to the available light. Super PLS technology (line plane switching) makes the screen remains clearly visible in wide angle and int the excessive lighting. Better than the IPS panel technology that carried by iPad.
Using Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating systm, Dual core 1 Mhz NVIDA Tegra 2 processor , 1 Gb RAM, 16 GB internal memory, but there is no USB ports on the tab, like Transformer and Motorola Xoom tablet. Similarly, there is no HDMI port and a micro SD slot. There are only a single 30 pin port at the bottom to connect the data cable and congenital hole 3.5 mm audio jack.

When you wish to zoom in or out website, place your two thumbs on the left and right of the screen, then move down to zoom in or up to zoom out. Watching Youtube? Can be directly from the browser even if the application is also available. A somewhat disturbing is when we want to access sites that have dual versions (web and mobile) such as yahoo, then by default the browser is read in mobile version. it’s useless eh, for the 10.1-inch screen size?
Galaxy Tab 10.1 camera application Features somewhat perfectly, although the 3 megapixels camera considered outdated. You can easily adjust the exposure, resolution, white balance and shooting modes.
