    played with the Galaxy tab 10.1 today

    well as the title says i stopped into best buy today to see if the had the GT 10.1 out to play with. I will say it looks nice but im not sure what all the excitment is about. once you get past the slim form factor its still Honeycomb, just like the xoom im typing this on. Maybe im one of the lucky ones who hasnt had many issues on my xoom but i have to say i would not sell my xoom to buy a GT. That being said if they were both available on the same day i bought the xoom i might have been tempted to save some money and get the 16gb GT. Although i have quite a few movies on my xoom so im sure i would have been dissapointed with the storage on the Tab. just my two cents, it a very nice tablet but not any better then the xoom.

    Have to run to Best Buy soon and play with one of the Galaxy Tabs -- I like the slim factor but the specs are flat-out better on "my precious" =)

    How was the screen compared to the Xoom? Just curious, I'm not defecting.

    I played with one today as well and I wish I had waited and not bought the Xoom. I thought the screen looked much more vibrat and not washed out like the Xoom's

    The screen is gorgeous, its a Samsung, that's to be expected.

    i didnt really pay any attention to the screen differences. i guess that tells me they really are not that different. im sure the samsung has much better off angle viewing as the xoom does get washed out when you tilt it. If you go in looking to compare the screen im sure you will see the difference but if you just go to use it like you do your xoom i dont think the screen stands out as being better.

    I also stop by the Samsung store in Columbus Circle in NYC and they had a few GT out for display. I cant lie, I did love the screen but like jblalock77 said it's Sammy what do you expect. It being thinner than my Xoom didn't impress me at all and at the end of the day I still love my Xoom and the only reason I'm not typing this from it right now is because I've playing Plant vs. Zombies all day. Now I did like the haptic feedback on the GT but it felt kinda "cheap" and plasticy and the speakers sucked!!! Im Xooming baby!!
