Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 review
Samsung's first 10in tablet is remarkably light and thin, but is it too much of a lightweight for its own good? We take a closer look in our review.
Dual-band wireless N networking is built-in, although 3G isn't and there's no word on availability of a 3G-equipped version. GPS is built-in, but you'll need to be connected to WiFi to use Google Maps or use an offline maps app. There's also a pair of rear and forward facing webcams for use with video chatting apps. Using the Tab 10.1 as a camera will make you feel dorky, but the image quality is reasonably good.
We had our suspicions that the Tab 10.1's thin design would leave little room for packing in a large battery.
We had our suspicions that the Tab 10.1's thin design would leave little room for packing in a large battery and these suspicions were borne out by our H264 playback battery test. The battery lasted just under nine and a half hours which compares very well to most ultraportable laptops, but it's the shortest battery life of any Android tablet we've seen so far and way behind the iPad 2.
