Conclusion

Below I compare the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the iPad 2. In my opinion the Samsun Galaxy Tab is better on some point, here are my reasons to buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab:
  1. The quality of the front (webcam) camera is better;
  2. Adobe Flash support;
  3. Slot for microSD card / support (to extend memory);
  4. iTunes is not needed for Apps and file transfer;
  5. Lighter (less weight to take with you when you travel);
  6. Longer Warranty;
  7. Display plastic (less fragile);
  8. Stereo speakers.
When some specifications are not right, please leave a comment on my blog.
