October 27, 2010

Samsung’s answer to Apple’s iPad has a seven-inch screen, up to 32 gigabytes of memory (expandable to 64 gigabytes with a built-in MicroSD card reader), and front- and back-mounted cameras for applications such as videoconferencing and augmented reality. It uses the Android operating system, and unlike the iPad, it will run Flash-based Web applications–so you won’t have to give up watching your favorite videos because Mr. Jobs says so. It connects to the Internet over Wi-Fi or cellular connections.
