SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB 750
WHAT WE LIKED: Wonderfully light and the least bulky of the 10-inchers, the Tab 750 has a clean, spartan design. It is fast and furious where raw speed goes. Though purists will disagree, once you get used to it, Samsung’s proprietary Touchwiz ser interface skin over Android can be quite agreeable and useful. The preinstalled apps—especially the office suite and the photo editor—propelled by Touchwiz get you off the ground right away without shopping around. The 1,280x800 display is capable of sharp, vibrant imagery and provides superb viewing angles. WHAT WE DIDN’T: Light, yes but why does it have to border on the outright plasticy? Other tablets outshine and outclass the Galaxy Tab’s 3MP rear camera if you rate the shooter important. The grouse about the the
ports—or the lack of them—is the same as with the ipad: no USB, no HDMI, no microsd. Besides it comes with a proprietary dock connector. Audio quality is average. Battery, though substantial at over 8 hours, doesn’t last as long as the others. VERDICT: The closest to size zero you can get at this point in time. It is both speedy and slick. For us the real fight is deciding between whether you want a lighter slate or a more solid and heftier one. Bear in mind that Samsung is a nimble and surefooted company with an ear to the ground and sensitive to the market demands. As with the other Android tablet, Honeycomb is a bitter-sweet pill so far. And take it or leave it, it is part of this bundle. Be that as it may, if are planning to go Android, keep this one on your radar—you have to.
