Overall: I Finally got my Galaxy Tab 730 (8.9") and after using it with iPad 2, I felt SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB 8.9 product is light years ahead of iPad or any other Apple Technology even iPhone 4S.nnHere is a short list of what advantage you can have over iPad2; Reasons to consider the GALAXY Tab 8.9:nn01. You have USB mass Storage (Which iPad lacks); that means just plug & play and copy & paste. Its that Simple.nn02. Significantly higher resolution screen i.e. 800x1280 vs 768x1024 of iPad2 ; More than 30% higher resolution screen.nn03. Galaxy Tab 8.9 has Higher PPI screen i.e. 169 PPI vs 131 PPI of Apple iPad2 ; Around 30% crisper display of text, images and video.nn04. You can have Full Resolution Photos (whereas on Ipad iTunes, it reduces the size while syncing).nn05. Bright, vivid screen of Galaxy Tab 8.9 : TFT LCD that means Brighter and more vivid colour reproduction.nn06. Much-Much lighter than iPad2; Around 30% lighter. Galaxy Tab 8.9 = 447g & Apple iPad2 = 601gnn07. Galaxy Tab 8.9 has Much newer Bluetooth support 3.0 whereas Apple is still on 2.1 ; Typically faster data transfer and lower power consumption connecting to other bluetooth devicesnn08. One of the Important feature is the "Bluetooth" which works perfectly for sending and receiving any files with PC, Laptop and my phone. But on iPad, bluetooth just does NOT work for sending files! Which is really irritating.nn09. Faster max data speeds HSDPA (21 mbps) vs HSDPA (14,4 mbps) of Ipad2 ; Higher theoretical max data transfer speeds over cell networks (around 50% faster)nn10. You dont have to use any software to "SYNC" like on iPad. on Tab you Just drag and drop any file from Windows Explorer. Apple's Drawback: iTunes.nn11. Unlike iPad, Android supports FULL multitasking and you have "DESKTOP" with Live Widgets (which Apple can only dream of... :P).nn12. It plays more music file formats and video formats than iPad. You dont have to sit and CONVERT videos to get it to play. Yuck !!!nn13. MOST IMPORTANT... Its ANDROID... in my case, i consider it much better than Apple's IOS.. Android 3.1 way-way ahead of the current generation of IOS in terms of features....nn14. Its screen aspect ratio is better than the iPad 2, on iPad to video playback has black boreders.nn15. Dual Core Processor in Mobile Technology was Launched by Samsung in Apr 2011 (S2), where Apple just launched its dual core with lessor processing power in Sep 2011 (4S).nnSo You can see how APPLE Corp. is light years behind Samsung, HTC, Sony or even any other company running in India.
