Samsung's 10-inch tablet has some significant strengths against its competitors.

Some important features on this product which probably make it a better iPad MORESeth Weintraub - Mar 14, 2011 3:50 PM ET
In a February ChangeWave survey, 70% were "very satisfied" and 25% "somewhat satisfied"
There were few surprises in the survey of 3,091 ChangeWave members polled just before the iPad 2 announcement.
Interest in buying a tablet among ChangeWave's early adopter types was up, to 27% from 25% in November.
Interest in buying an iPad was high -- with 82% preferring Apple's (AAPL) tablet to Motorola's (MOT) Xoom (4%), Research in Motion's (RIMM) MORE
There is a difference between "quite small" and "quite smooth"
My colleague Seth Weintraub hit a nerve -- and stirred a fierce debate -- Thursday with a post entitled Steve Jobs' reality distortion takes its toll on truth, in which he called Apple's (AAPL) CEO to task for what Weintraub saw as three deliberate distortions in Jobs' iPad 2 keynote:

Big media companies are grousing about Apple's 30% app tax. OnSwipe wants to convince readers—and publishers—there's another, better way.
By Chadwick Matlin, contributor
Last week, after a year of luring big media organizations onto the iPad, Apple sent out a press release, but they would have done just as well sending copies of the old board game Mouse Trap. The release said that publishers, like all app developers, would have to pay what MOREFeb 25, 2011 10:33 AM ET
Good, but probably not good enough.
If you can somehow see through the Honeycomb hysteria going on currently, you'll notice that another Android 2.2 tablet was released today. The Dell (DELL) Streak 7" tablet on T-Mobile is notable because it is the first to use a 4G network (quite well, I might add) and has a dual-core Nvidia Tegra processor, the same processor all of the fancy phones and tablets are going to MORESeth Weintraub - Jan 31, 2011 11:34 PM ET

The new Android App looks pretty darn good on my Galaxy Tab.
I'm not sure why Facebook isn't delivering a great app for the iPad, but I fired up the Android Market after Mark Zuckerberg's Mobile announcement today and found a brilliant new app waiting for my Samsung Galaxy Tab. Sure, it is the same app that phones like the Sprint EVO and Verizon Droid use but because Android scales to many MORESeth Weintraub - Nov 3, 2010 5:06 PM ET
The high price may come down over the weeks leading to the Christmas shopping season.
In a press release today, Samsung announced that its seven-inch Galaxy Tab would arrive at Verizon (VZ) stores on November 11, just a few weeks after Verizon will offer Apple's (AAPL) iPad.
The $599 price point seems a little high for me but, as is often the case with most mobile devices, prices plummet almost immediately after launch. Verizon MORESeth Weintraub - Oct 20, 2010 10:01 AM ET
$399 with contract, $599 off contract with a November 14 release.
A report by Boy Genius this morning says that the Samsung Galaxy Tab would be priced at a believable $399 contract and $599 on Sprint (S) as a stand-alone purchase. No information was available about the terms of the contract but I expect it to be similar to AT&T's (T) iPad plan. At a savings of $200 over the two-year contract, MORESeth Weintraub - Oct 8, 2010 7:41 AM ET
