Tabletmania continues with the Samsung Tab

4 June 2010

Now Apple has sold two million iPads in just two months, their competitors have realised the device probably wasn't such a dickish idea after all and, like Heath Ledger, have gone tablet-crazy. Every sod and his dog is releasing one, and that includes Samsung - although you probably weren't meant to know about it just yet.

Their team in South Africa posted a photo of their new Samsung Galaxy Tab alongside a Samsung Galaxy S. According to Slashgear, the Tab has a 7-inch, “high-res” LCD TFT display and runs on Google's Android OS:

Bitterwallet - Samsung Galaxy Tab
Whether you were meant to know about the Galaxy Tab is another matter - the image was posted to Twitter yesterday and has since been deleted, although it's one of three tablets that Samsung reportedly launching in the next few months. Tablets, eh? They'll be popping out your arse by the end of the year.

    Sigh. Well, at least we've identified 2 million people who should be drafted into the services should world war 3 break out. Brainless spacktards always make great cannon fodder. There was one of these on radio 1 the other day being interviewed, and it literally went like this: "So why did you buy one of the new Apple iPads?" "uh, because its made by Apple. Thats it really. " Fucking mingecheese.

    You've got to be a closet case to buy one of these things.

    I quite like the ipad. Boots up in 10 seconds, can check emails, surf the web, read or watch a video. 10 hour battery life. Might pop down to PC World this afternoon....

    Gotta love it though, mobile phones started off the size of a shoe box and manufactures spent years making everything smaller and now suddenly everyone wants something the size of a shoe box again, because it is made by apple. And they will pay anything to have it. Marketing genius!

    Well it's not just because it's Apple, it's just that there is no alternative, who wants Windows on a table? Or Web OS for that matter, Does anyone know when the Android Tables are going to start to appear?

    Why not buy a windows tablet and then install OSX on it? I've been reliably informed by a mactard at work that Apple have been supporting touchscreen since v10 although it's turned off, although he's 12 and has only been living in the proper money earning workld for 3 years.

    You're still not winning me over Henry. You've made it sound like a £50 Joggler.

    Maybe I should just get an Archos off QVC.
