Why I’m not getting the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.123 Jun 2011 10 Comments
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 went on sale on Amazon about 5 days ago. I almost got one before really thinking it through. I realized that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a number of disadvantages:
1) No Micro SD Card Slot:
One of the main uses of the tablet for me is to watch videos on the go. And I already hate the way my iPad/2 manages videos as I have to connect the device to a PC every time I want a new file or I have to delete stuff if I’m running out of space.16/32GB wont cut it.
2) No Full Size USB Port:
This is a a major drawback. As most of the new Android tablet come with at least one port. The Asus EEE Pad Transformer has 2 using the keyboard dock but 0 on the tablet itself.
With the 3.1 update I would love to play some games using my PS3 controller.
Also for a not so apparent reason, NVIDIA already showing off their Tegra 3 quad-core CPU/12 Core GPU and 5 times the performance of Tegra 2. And reports are saying that they should be available by the end of the year and as early as September.
