Honey, I blew up the Galaxy S

Today we received a package with a special surprise inside and we thought we'd share it with you.

We aren't the first to think it and we won't be the last. Even the box of the new Galaxy Tab looks like a larger version of the kind of packaging we see on smartphones.

A Galaxy in your pocket?

OK, we're going to need bigger pockets on our jeans, but it's definitely small enough to follow you everywhere.

Top deck

We really like the white plastic back, it gives the Galaxy Tab a unique feel it may have lacked with a piano-black covering.

Odds and ends

The Tab ships with a standard bunch of accessories, including a proprietary charger similar to Apple's famous iPod connector.

Undressing

Time to slip into something a little more comfortable.

It's alive...

With little fanfare the Galaxy Tab is powered on.

Zoom zoom!

No sooner does the Galaxy light up that we're racing around in Need for Speed.

You'll have to speak up, I'm on the tablet

The microphone on the Galaxy Tab is closest to the top, so there'll be no pretending you're on the phone with this one.

Say cheese

In theory it might seem ridiculous taking photos with a tablet computer, but there is something awesome about having a 7-inch viewfinder.
