Wow! Got a demo unit (or a few–look for an Acer, Toshiba, and Asus review soon), and I FOUND the tablet for me. You know I have been rocking the Viewsonic, and enjoy dumping ROMS on it, but Honeycomb, Google’s 3.0 OS ROCKS on the Samsung. The features, resizing widgets, buttons in the OS and no ‘real’ buttons, and so many features finally prove Android ready for the classroom. I truly believe, now, we have found some equipment that can work in a K-12 environment. I believe the Samsung offering may be that hardware in most cases.
So I did an unboxing for it. From the initial moments, I knew this tablet would work for me. The haptic feedback, or the vibrating to simulate real typing on a keyboard works so well. The Tegra processor helps everything speed around, and the color–very bright. Viewing angles are much
better than my Viewsonic as well. I will share some more upcoming…but for now, at around $500, definitely worth that. Not sure at this point if it’s the hardware maximized for Honeycomb or Honeycomb itself, but regardless, Android has definitely created a big competitor to iPad!
