The Good As thin as the iPad 2 and even lighter, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the sexiest Honeycomb (soon upgradeable to Android 4.0) tablet we've seen. Also, it has an 8-megapixel back camera and a 2-megapixel front camera, and powerful dual speakers.
The Bad The lack of ports on the tablet will be a problem for some and the plastic back leaves it feeling less solid than the iPad 2.
The Bottom Line Sleek, sexy, and light, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 gets as close to the iPad 2 as any Android tablet before it.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Editor's note: Thanks to the release of recent, high-quality tablets, the overall score of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Verizon) has been adjusted down from 7.7 to 7.0.
From a design perspective, no Android 3.0-based tablet has matched the iPad 2's no-nonsense aesthetic. The iPad 2 is sleek, sexy, thin, and light, with a minimalist design that eschews extra ports. Every Honeycomb tablet released so far has struggled to match that appeal.
