The Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet on AT&T is offered at $649 with no contract.

Unlike other carriers, AT&T's Galaxy Tab comes with a minimum of apps preinstalled on the home screen (which we think is a good thing).

The Tab's 7-inch screen can be oriented in portrait or landscape, with the home screen quickly adjusting to any position.

The back of AT&T's Tab comes in a textured checkerboard glossy black, resembling fiberglass. A camera and flash are located in the upper-left corner.

At just under a half-inch thick, the Tab doesn't trump the iPad in the thinness department.

Another hardware detail that distinguishes the AT&T Galaxy Tab from the models offered by Sprint and Verizon is the inclusion of a SIM card slot. The SIM slot uses a full-size SIM, as opposed to the micro-SIM used on the Apple iPad and iPhone 4.

You'll also notice the MicroSD card slot here, which is empty on the AT&T Tab but can support cards up to 32GB.
