reveal the sophistication of Samsung Galaxy Tab Android - 7 inches

There are a lot of Android tablets making their rounds in the blogosphere asof late, but the oft-leaked Samsung Galaxy Tab is the only real Android-powered competitor to Apple’s iPad to be made official so far. Samsung has announced the 7-inch Galaxy Tab as their first Android tablet here at IFA 2010 in Berlin, Germany, and we’ve had a chance to get all touchy-feely with the new tablet device. At first, it might be hard to see how any device could give Apple reason to worry that its iPad isn’t the end all be all of tablets, but after spending some time with the Tab, it’s clear that Samsung has a potential hit on its hands.

The Galaxy Tab improves on the Galaxy S’s proven formula for success with a perfectly-sized screen, media distribution stores that aren’t anything to scoff at, and uncompromised hardware. It features a 7-inch display, the 1Ghz Hummingbird chip from the Galaxy S, 3G cellular connectivity (with microphone), WiFi (B/G/N), GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, 3-megapixel rear-facing camera (with LED flash) and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, Android 2.2 Froyo, gyroscope, digital compass, accelerometer, light sensor, and a 4000 mAh battery. The Tab will be available with either 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage. As far as Android tablets are concerned, this may be just what the little, green robot ordered.

Because it’s running Android 2.2 Froyo out of the box, the Galaxy Tab will come preloaded with the Adobe Flash 10.1 Player, allowing you to stream embedded Flash videos and interact with Flash menus on the web. You also get Thunkfree Office for editing Microsoft Office documents, as well as the Swype keyboard to make typing as easy as dragging your finger across the keyboard. And, with a fully functional 3G cellular radio on board, the Tab is capable of making phone calls using the onboard microphone and speaker or a headset of some sort (wired or Bluetooth). It’s essentially a giant Galaxy S smartphone, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing – remember, the iPad was called a giant iPod Touch just before it went on to sell millions of units.

Speaking of being very similar to a Galaxy S, Samsung made sure that the Galaxy Tab has a couple legs up on its smartphone cousin. First off, the Tab can play 1080p HD video with full hardware decoding. The Galaxy S can only play 720p video. The Tab also includes a massive 4,000 mAh battery that should be good for multiple days of surfing the web, reading books and watching movies. The TouchWiz 3.0 UI that Samsung has skinned atop the Android 2.2 OS has been tweaked with a new “rotation lock” button accessible via the pull-down notifications tray. The front-facing camera means that video chats are also a go. This might seem trivial, but it gives the Samsung tablet a leg up on the iPad.

There’s also a custom calendar app, contacts app, and email app that is tailored for the tablet’s larger display. The calendar and contacts apps offer a custom dual-pane landscape view that’s made to work with the Tab in landscape orientation. The custom email app offers a dual-pane landscape view that’s similar to the iPad’s email client, but one-ups the Apple tablet with a unified email inbox. The calendar, contacts and email apps all integrate with Google services.

Samsung has also blessed the Tab with a Music Hub and Reader Hub, in addition to the Media Hub, to give the user access to downloadable media. You can buy music, ebooks, newspapers, magazines, movies, and TV shows through these “hubs.”

Still, it’s not all is roses and rainbows with the Galaxy Tab. We have to wonder how the Tab’s high-resolution 1024×600 WSVGA display will work with currently available Android apps. Samsung has confirmed that not all of the Top 200 Android apps in the Android Market are optimized to take full advantage of the tablet’s 7-inch display. This could pose a problem going forward, as most other Android devices make use of displays at a maximum resolution of 800×480. The iPad, for example, can double-up on pixels for iPhone apps that aren’t optimized for the iPad’s larger screen and higher resolution. The Tab doesn’t have this functionality, as far as we know, which could be a problem. For it’s part, Samsung is saying that they are working with Google to reach out to developers to encourage them to create apps that can scale to the 1024×600 resolution display on the Galaxy Tab. We’re also told that an update to Android 3.0 Gingerbread will be available for the tablet in the future.

Overall, though, the most impressive aspect of the Tab is its size. It’s thin enough to be sexy, which is only complemented by its glossy back cover. The 7-inch screen is incredibly hand-friendly. You can comfortably hold the screen with one hand, and typing on the on-screen keyboard is ridiculously easy. The Tab could give iPad reason to worry!

the opposite party-away T-Mobile

The T-Mobile G2 is undoubtedly one of the best upcoming Android smartphones for the nation’s fourth largest mobile carrier. The G2 is a solid upgrade to its predecessor, the G1, offering a snappier processor, larger screen, seemingly better keyboard, upgraded camera, and more. But can the T-Mobile G2 compete with the likes of the HTC EVO 4G, Motorola Droid X, or Samsung Epic 4G?

Besides some nice looking hardware, does the G2 bring anything new to the table that customers will actually notice? Sure, the device will sport the Qualcomm Scorpion CPU, which should be up to par with Samsung’s Hummingbird processor, but other than some T-Mobile customizations, there’s nothing we haven’t seen before with this device.

And, while clock speed isn’t everything for the CPU, (as we’ve seen the Samsung Moment and its 800Mhz CPU being outperformed by the more efficient architecture of the original Droid’s 600MHz CPU) the 800MHz speed of the Scorpion processor may not be enough for those who will just look at the number and assume it will be slower than other 1GHz processors (1000MHz) out there. Again, clock speed is not the end all, be all for overall system performance and speed.

The MSM7x30 processor in the T-Mobile G2 can operate from 800Mhz to 1GHz, so at least the hackers who root the device will be able to overclock it to reach GHz speeds. Because of this, I’m personally not worrying about the CPU speed of the G2. Still, potential customers may feel a bit spoiled with the handful of 1GHz Snapdragon phones out there.

What does the G2 bring to the table that would make one “ooh and aww”? The G2 lacks some of the fancy hardware that we’ve seen on the EVO 4G, Epic 4G, or iPhone 4. That said, some of those features aren’t necessarily suited for everyday use, although the option to video chat/watch videos on a TV via HDMI-out/watch a video with a kickstand is always nice to have. I really couldn’t give a rat’s ass about a front-facing camera, but would I like the option to use one? Of course. Would I connect my phone to my TV with the HDMI port every single day? No way, but if such a port was available on the G2, it would be a very welcomed addition.

So what does the T-Mobile G2 bring to the table that competitors don’t have? Well, there’s HSPA+, T-Mobile’s upgraded 3G, which can reach “4G speeds”, and the G2′s use of a stock Android UI. T-Mobile is making the G2 the first HSPA+ device, which is a smart move for the carrier’s short-term strategy. The G2 will also be pretty much the only stock Android handset you can find on the market. With Nexus One supplies drying up seemingly everywhere and the original Motorola Droid not expected to get the Android Gingerbread update, if you want a stock Android smartphone, you’re pretty much out of luck.

While geeks, like myself, will prefer the stock Android experience, it’s possible that many potential users might not like the rather dry look of stock Android. Having used HTC’s Sense UI on almost every Android phone I’ve owned, I’m done with custom skins and now prefer the vanilla Android experience. Stock Android isn’t something you’d technically call a “feature” on a device, but it will make those who are upgrading from their G1 feel more at home with a familiar UI.

Keep in mind, T-Mobile’s HSPA+ data network is going to be awesome for the coming months, but will be overshadowed by upcoming technologies from AT&T and Verizon. T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network may be faster that Sprint’s 4G services for now, but they will soon be outpaced by LTE networks, once they are fully deployed and optimized to offer ever faster data speeds. Sprint uses WiMAX for their “4G”, and that will allow them to upgrade to LTE using the existing infrastructure they currently use. T-Mobile, can’t say the same. These are all factors to consider when buying a G2.

So, the T-Mobile G2 may be a hit for the carrier, but at the end of the day it’s just another Android phone. It’ll be my next Android phone, without a doubt, but it’s nonetheless just one more Android to add to the stack. If the official specifications end up sporting features that are not yet confirmed, (HDMI, front-facing camera) then I may have to make a revision to this article.

So what do you think? Can the T-Mobile G2 compete with the likes of the Android elite? Is it possibly worth switching carriers for? Hit us up in the comments!

G2 first and foremost

Well, it’s not that surprising, but T-Mobile officially announced the G2 Android phone and this baby rocks HSPA+ speeds.

The device, of course, is the followup to the world’s first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1. It will launch with Android 2.2 and from the looks of the press release, it appears that it will be stock Android (Like the original, HTC makes the T-Mobile G2).

The T-Mobile G2 is Google to the gills, as it will come with Quick Keys to Google services like Google Voice Actions, Google Maps and other software from the search giant.

Perhaps more importantly, this is the first device that can access the T-Mobile HSPA+ 3G network. T-Mobile was a joke in mobile data services a few years ago but its HSPA+ 3G network is nothing to sneeze at – this offers 21 Mbps (that’s theoretical, look for about 14 Mbps or so in optimal conditions with the T-Mobile G2).

As expected, the T-Mobile G2 will come with the Snapdragon MSM7230 mobile processor with a 800 MHz CPU. I know devices like the Sprint EVO 4G and the Droid X have seemingly made a 1 GHz processor seem like the standard but numbers aren’t everything, as we’ll be curious to see how a stock version of the Android 2.2 runs on some optimized hardware.

Look for a 3.7-inch display but there’s no concrete word if it’s AMOLED or Sony’s Super LCD. It will also have a 5-megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video, a pre-installed 8 GB memory with support for up to 32 GB, GPS, Bluetooth and all the goodies you expect from a device of this class.

“One of the advantages of an open platform is the opportunity for developers to create rich mobile experiences and seamlessly get those experiences into the hands of consumers,” said Andy Rubin, vice president, engineering, Google, in a prepared statement. “From new services, such as Voice Actions, to mobile applications, developer-led Android innovation is flourishing. On Android Market alone, the number of applications available to consumers has grown from just 50 applications two years ago to more than 80,000 applications today.”

The T-Mobile G2 will be available for preorder to Magenta customers “later this month.” No word on pricing or release date but I’d bet on a $200 subsidized price with a new contract and a release date by late September.

With stellar Android devices like the EVO 4G, Droid X and the Samsung Galaxy lineup, our resident Android head Blake asked if the T-Mobile G2 can compete. What do you think, friends.

WP7: detector windows

Microsoft and HTC debuted the new HTC Surround at the Microsoft Windows Phone 7 press conference in NYC today, and we got a chance to play with the new music-centric WP7 smartphone. The HTC Surround features a large 3.8-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen that lies atop a 1GHz first-generation Snapdragon processor and 16GB of onboard storage. It’s also fitted with all the high-end smartphone bells and whistles that we’ve come to expect from this caliber of handset, but the highlight of its feature-set is the slide-out speaker. Slide the display to the left and it reveals a Yamaha speaker panel that blasts music out with Dobly Digital audio processing.

We’re not sure how well the HTC Surround’s “unique” design will be received by the general masses, but for those of you with a serious penchant for listening to music through a smartphone speaker, the Surround is the WP7 handset for you. Underneath the metallic grill lies a set of Yamaha speakers, ready to pump out the tunes in surround sound, thanks to the various Dolby Digital surround sound profiles that are available on the phone. You can cycle through the different surround sound profiles via the little button in the speaker grill (see the button in the pics below).

There’s also 16GB of onboard storage, but no microSD card slot. That means you’ll be limited to storing only 16GB worth of music and videos on the device. But, with Zune Pass integration, you could probably stand to keep most of your music on your desktop and use the Zune Pass music subscription service for all your mobile music listening needs.

Overall, the HTC Surround boasts the high-end build-quality that we associate with HTC smartphones. The slider is smooth and solid, sliding open with a confident “snick.” There isn’t too much travel in the slider mechanism because it only has to slide out far enough to reveal a slim speaker panel. The display is crisp and large (3.8-inch capacitive touchscreen), but we would have been happy to see a larger, 4.3-inch display, a la the HD7. If you’re looking to play music through your WP7 phone’s speakers, the HTC Surround is your best bet. Grab one soon on AT&T for $200 with a new 2-year contract.
