During the IFA 2010, the Samsung Galaxy Tab was shown and a few months later, the Tab has seen a phased introduction and is now available in different countries. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet can be comfortably held in one hand, just like holding a Smartphone, although you will notice its weight after a while. I put the tablet flat on the table to keep working with it. Operation is intuitive and the tablet’s buttons in combination with the touch control make it easy to navigate. The memory card slot for the microSD / SDHC cards and the SIM slot are found on the side of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. In addition, the on/off button and the volume button are neatly integrated into the side. The front of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, there is a VGA camera for video calling, and a 3 Megapixel digital camera is on the back.
