    1. It weighs the same as one cup of coffee – 565g to be precise.

    2. At 8.6mm, it is as thin as a pencil! This makes it the slimmest tablet available in the market today.

    3. Its 1GHz Dual Core processor gives you over 450 times more computing power than it took to land on the moon.

    4. Its nine-hour battery life means you can spend every minute of your flight watching The Godfather Trilogy in HD.

    5. See more online and enjoy everything from 346 million websites and counting, including the 86.5 million sites that need Adobe Flash support. Make sure you can surf the whole entire World Wide Web.

    6. 4.5 billion people are active on social networks around the world. Respond to the ones that matter to you instantly through Social Hub’s integrated SNS services.

    7. It just takes 390 seconds (depending on usage and network capability) to download four episodes of your favourite TV show wherever you are, using the advanced +HSPA connectivity.

    8. View and edit Microsoft office documents anytime and anywhere at your fingertip with the free Polaris Office.

    9. Through the USB Adaptor, be assured of endless data-sharing capabilities through a simple plug-and-play action, unique to the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

    10. It runs on 3.1 Honeycomb, one of the world's latest versions of Android, the world's top operating system.

    I love android, I have both a droid and an iphone, like the droid better. I have the ipad but can't stand no flash but worry about buying another tablet after what happened to the HP touchpad.

    I am beginning to sway over towards Android products and I don't think they will end up like HP did, they are becoming to main stream...plus I think a lot of ppl are sick of the fact that when you buy apple you are obligated to use everything apple and the flash issue is huge or at least an issue with most ppl I talk too. I think the Galaxy will be some stiff competition for apple. I didn't see apple fuss too much over the touchpad but now that a legit competitor has emerged, apple is shitting bricks. and as for the Galaxy 2 phone, it is fuckin kick ass :c

    I still hope apple does well, it is the only stock we own that is up. It is up 409.03% from when we first bought it. All others are down.

    I doubt they will be going anywhere for a while...I got out of the stock market a while ago. For a bit I took a hard loss and only made back some money once metals started heating up a few years back, got out right after :facepalm:

    Apple is right about one thing, javascript is much better and stable than flash, too bad the rest of the computer world don't think so. Thank you Bill.

    Vybette has an iPad but needs my laptop for certain sites she likes.

    But my wife says some update coming soon will accept Flash. I dunno if it's a new OS or what.
