Personally, it’s too big to be using as my daily phone device. The idea of 7 inches of screen real estate on my phone is tempting but the weight and size of this makes it impractical for me. For others willing to look past the extra bulk, the Samsung Galaxy Tab would definitely make surfing the web, emailing, multimedia on the road much more exciting!
I’ve added the specifications and a insightful video from CNET on the Samsung Galaxy Tab to give you a feel for this huge smartphone. I don’t think it’s an iPad killer, however I do think that we’ll be seeing a lot of these types of phones in this growing niche.
