Samsung Galaxy Tab 750 is the latest gadget that is making buzz in India. Geeks are already busy with a wide split of opinions among latest tablets. Gone are the days when people used to talk about the so called notebooks aka laptops! Welcome to the era of ‘Tablets’ now. While many like Android based tabs, Samsung was pretty fast in setting up the war with its range of soon after their launch of Galaxy series of Android OS mobiles. Let us look at a close reality of what a tab is all about and how tabs will be game changes in the tech industry for sometime from now on.
Reading printed books is a story from the past, now everything is going the e-way! On one of my flight journey with a bunch of colleagues, I saw one of them using Amazon Kindle to continue reading an e-book. After a while, he switched over to playing sudoku on the same device. This just shows we have changed our lifestyle in tune with the technology and everyone prefers in their area of interest. May be for this person, it was a matter of reading few books and playing games. This person went on narrating how useful it is on long journeys and how his kids are able to use it too for reading purpose. Interesting use case and the device served the purpose to a large extent!
Then there was another person in the office who is an Apple fanboy. This guy just loves to show off the latest gadgets he owns and iPad was no exception when it was launched. Now the use case here is a bit different, this guy was able to do all that a Kindle guy was able to do, more in addition to all of that. May it be clicking photos, doing a video conferencing over internet, browsing and to some extent boasting of the new gadget in his kitty 🙂
After all that, here comes the next set of use cases where in a facebook friend of mine wanted to buy a tablet to browse recipes and look at a video (preferably with Adobe flash support) of the same and do it all while preparing the same dish in a kitchen! Another travel freak wanted to use a similar device for maps and navigation. If all these use cases can be addressed without having restriction to a set of supported apps of a particular brand, life would be more fun with these gadgets. And that is exactly where the Android bridges the gaps! That too when backed by a powerful easy to carry hardware to support and extend the power of what one can think of doing on a normal notebook, things can only get better from there on and Samsung Galaxy Tab 750 does exactly the same!
Here is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 750 launch video with more detailed info on what all it does:
Internal memory this device supports is 16 GB and there is no external card support. Camera might make you a fanboy of this device as it supports just 3 mega pixels. However, it has got the right form factor with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a high resolution. This tablet from Samsung uses a 7000 mAh capacity battery that supports video playback of 9 hours and music playback of 72 hours. Thinking of connectivity and features, one can enjoy faster browsing and download speeds on Samsung Galaxy Tab with Wi-Fi and 3G for internet connectivity and Adobe Flash support, which is a major win over iPad!
With all these, I am sure the Galaxy Tab by Samsung is expected to create a buzz in the people mind and certainly I wouldn’t be surprised if people opt for Tablets against notebooks from now on. If the prices come down for this device in comparison with that of mid range smart phones, I don’t see a reason why the product would fail. After looking at some of the photos/visuals from IndiBlogger event at Bangalore over the weekend, these tabs are here to stay and take the everyone’s as well as blogger’s life through a shift in paradigm. Are you ready yet to think “It’s time to Tab”?

Nice post Mohan, but it really bugs me that will the TAB really replace the laptop or the PC. At times it really makes me even wonder why would anyone ever want to buy such an expensive gadget with real limited options and capability compared to a laptop or a netbook even. Small and compact the netbook has higher capacity of HDD storage then the Tab, with lot more ram, apps and software and a long battery life too. At times its even cheaper then the TAB. I really wonder if the price of the TAB is really worth paying for.
As you know that Samsung is copy version (Hardware as well as software) Apple iPad, so it will be better to buy the original product itself. There are known reasons and those can be felt but difficult to explain. Something like you has to choose between Honda City car or Hyundai Accent and both of them cost same. For first time buyer, specification will not make much difference as it there is not much difference. Even after test ride, he/she will not be able to differentiate. Only after the use of it.
That’s the reason; user of apple product becomes (always) fan of it. Don’t believe me? Check it yourself.
Well, I don’t deny what you are mentioning. But nothing wrong in challenging the originals too. More over Samsung gets life on Android while ipad continues with thier own iOS. Challenge is always good for end users!
I wouldn’t mind having it in my kitchen to help myself become a better chef!
you must have got one already!
