Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Tab Top 10 List

You probably heard this already, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab was announced yesterday for every carrier including Verizon and will be the first Android tablet worth buying.  But if you still had questions and needed any other reason to contemplate buying one, then Verizon has put together an incredibly long top 10 list to help you decide.  Not a lot of things we didn’t already know, but the layout is a hell of a lot simpler than that gigantic press release from yesterday.

See it after the break!

    So does this mean that you cant buy it without having to get some kind of contract with verizon?

    • Pastubbs

      I saw it on a UK site, without contract for err cough cough $1000

  • Finire

    Another vote for Wi-Fi only please.

    I have yet to root my DInc, and am waiting until a worthwhile tablet comes out with strict wi-fi support. At that point, consider me rooted (I am so not paying VZW an extra 20/month just for 2gb of data..)

    then it wouldn't be Verizon…

    No one is shoving BS down your throat, this is an internal document that some one leak, documents like these are used by companies all over the world to get their employees excited about upcoming products, that's all this is, so keep the hating to yourself and get a job you bum!

    #7 VZ Navigator hahahahahh. Talk about beating a dead horse.

    If I want a tablet.. I want a tablet.. not a mini tablet/large phone form factor

    and even Motorola CEO, Sanjay Jha said hold off, Android tablets are not ready for prime time given the known Market limitations, some apps won't play nice given resolution, I want to wait it out. Better shizz will come out

    One WiFi only version please.. so then i can wireless tether it with my Droid :D

  • Calculatorwatch

    Haha not much love for this it seems. Also let's not forget that Samsung will probably ruin this with their crappy software like they do to literally every one of their phones. It's funny how much more skeptical Android users are than Apple users are about their products.

    3G – but no phone/voice capability? That's just stupid! I'm not gonna carry this AND my Android phone. So, no go for me…

  • Turner

    I wish these were coming faster. My boss has been talking about the i*ad and I thought I had her convinced to wait. She just called and said they were at the office to come pick mine up…I wouldn't probably buy any tablet out at the moment, but was hoping my work would get me one of these instead.

  • http://twitter.com/smpage smpage

    Glad they announced a Wi-Fi only version in the works but I'd really like to see one that has built in cell phone as well because, come one, that'd be super awesome/silly.

  • Jeff

    Too Much Vcrap stuff on it….. I also do not see Google Search. If you cannot put Google Search on it this is a 100% failure in my opinion….

  • digitalicecream

    WiFi only please, I'd rather tether it to my phone…

  • EggoEspada

    There will be one Samsung said. :)

  • http://www.twitter.com/azurikai azurikai

    definitely interesting but not worth buying at the moment. definitely would if there was a wifi only version.

  • http://www.twitter.com/azurikai azurikai

    shoulda typed first, then edited your message bro :/

  • Mrpicolas

    Ummm no:-)

  • Timoh

    Very much looking forward to getting an android tablet. This one is too small though. Probably a good idea to wait for a few major brands to launch their own, work out the bugs and flaws. I wont be buying one that requires mobile service either, just give me a wifi version and i'll tether it to my DX.

  • bravoleader2

    The more they shove this in my face the more it seems enticing. I just don't think it's going to be worth pulling the trigger on this though.

  • http://twitter.com/Wynalazca Andrew Webber

    I love how the Verizon bloatware is number 6 on the list as well as their 3g network being number 1. Sure the network may be a reason to get one on VZW instead of another carrier, but it isn't really a feature of the device. I hate how they just try to shove BS down our throats all the time.

  • Justsayitanyway

    NOT! a 3MP camera? Please

  • http://twitter.com/rogerchucker Roger Chucker

    Need WiFi version – not gonna pay for another line for just a tablet. This might be great for those with feature phones though and who don't find any value in smartphones yet.

    Great, a 2 handed phone

      I don't think Android will do ad hoc connections (correct me if I'm wrong, and I hope I am).

      Two words for you, Google Voice. Open your GMail and call anyone you like, YOU DON'T NEED A PHONE and won't need minutes, just bits. I don't know if this works now, but with this you could put in a BlueTooth headset, forward your present line to Google Voice. You can then make phone calls and surf the web at the same time. Not, that this would make the best dedicated phone. :-)

      Crazy world – When iPad came out (WiFi), everyone was waiting for the 3G version,
      Now with the tab, we have 3G first, but everyone is waiting for WiFi!

      I’m not following… it says you can do it with apps available in the market. To me, #6 seems to be more calling out a hardware feature than anything else – nothing to do with (built-in) software.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IDK6EIB6RKAT522Z452NOMVTZI Richard

      No, the feature they are mentioning without mentioning is the Google Market, as this is the ONLY tablet that has it and is it’s strongest feature.

      • Pastubbs

        What, the Google market that only has smart phone (read – small screen) applications.
