    Exclamation So the Galaxy tab has it....

    My wife's new Tab 8.9 has a screen capture button. She is running 3.1 and I know that the button is from Samsung, but why can't Moto get their stuff together and provide us with one? My wife's Tab is pretty sweet. Kinda liking it better than the [Wait for it] Xoom. The screen size isn't a whole lot smaller, it is WAAAAAAAY lighter and thinner. My kids gave up playing games on my Xoom and play them on her Tab. More time on it for me, but I am just sayin'!

    I'm curious to see what Motorola's midsized tablet is going to bring to the table. Samsung makes great stuff, but for my field use, there is such a thing as too thin and light for comfort.

    There is an app called screenshot it in the Market that will give you the functionality. And yes, I am usually rooted. I don't ever see myself running stock. For what it is worth the Transformer and the TouchPad have it as well. You can also take screenshots through ADB too.

    Pretty much anything other than ADB to get a screenshot requires root in the market. I admit that is really silly but maybe someday it will get added. Doubt it, but maybe ... I am one of the few that stays stock out of principle

    I was under the impression it works on unrooted devices because there is an app for unrooted devices. Unfortunately it excludes honeycomb and you may as well use ADB anyways.

    screenshot

    I downloaded screenshot and it bombed out every time I tried to use it. I would get a message stating that it was for rooted phones only.
