|The Samsung Galaxy Tab look lot like the iPad but is quite a bit smaller with just the size of 7 inches. It comes with a bright and shiny 1024 x 600 pixel TFT touchscreen. It is powered by Android 2.2 Froyo OS and sports the same Cortex A8 1 GHz Hummingbird processor that powers Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones. It comes with a built-in 2GB internal memory expandable up to 16GB via microSD card. It features 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth wireless technology v3.0, a mobile hotspot that can support up to five Wi-Fi devices. The Tab is equipped with a 1.3 MP camera for QIK video chatting and a 3-megapixel camera with a single LED flash (2048 × 1536 Pixels Max Resolution). The 3 MP camera features an Auto-Focus, landscape view and has the capacity to capture at 30 fps and 720 x 480p Pixel Resolution. It also features a continuous mode that allows capturing up to nine shots.
Samsung has developed core applications specifically for the Tab like the email app which is apparently similar to Galaxy S phones but when you flip the display into landscape mode you get a Microsoft Outlook-like pane that displays inbox on the left and messages on the right. It likewise features calendar app which, if the Tab is turned also into a landscape mode, can be adjusted to fit the entire screen or with a similar two pane view that shows a listing of upcoming events. Its messaging and contacts apps enable you to send SMS or MMS messages or e-mails to other contacts. Setting the Tab in landscape mode gives you a two pane view to look your contacts on the left side and message from the right. The Tab also has a Readers Hub app which contains access to Kobo's e-book store and other reading content It is also integrated with plenty of third-party applications, including Facebook, Amazon's Kindle, and Qik.
