Making a huge splash in the 7" Android category is the Galaxy Tab. It's the first device to combine all the features of a high-end Android phone into a hi-resolution 7" tablet. Performance is great, the screen is great, stereo speakers are good (as tested at IFA, Sept 2010) and the Android software has even been enhanced with features like Samsung camera software and Samsung applications. The docking station provides connectivity although adaptor cables will be required. Announced 799 Euro price is very high but street prices should be nearer 600 Euro.
