Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Samsung has just added a new tablet to its lineup for Galaxy Tab Series. Its new edition is called Galaxy Tab 10.1. In my humble opinion, it is a total failure. A disaster for the company and disappointment to fans all over the world.

The design is good, sleek and stylish. But in an attempt to compete with iPad, It made loads of compromises on functionality and usability. It is not a phone and its not a computer as well, so what is it good for? Browsing the internet! Yeah, you can do that on it.samsung-galaxy-tablet-10.1
