The time has passed where I decided to purchase my first tablet PC. The closest thing I had to an ultra-portable tablet previously was my Samsung Tocco phone, my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop that has recently died, and my HTC Advantage PDA.
I had been saving up to buy an iPad 2 16GB WiFi only model for a few months now, and as soon as I got the money, I had second thoughts.
I have bought this specifically for school work, and taking around with me as all my coursework is set on a flash-based website. I know Flash sucks, but I am going to need it in the long run.
Now, my favourite two tablets have always been Apple’s iPad, and the Galaxy Tab from Samsung right from when they released the original Galaxy Tab.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 claims to be the thinnest tablet on the market, and it really packs a punch. It boasts a damn good 720p HD camera, and a very sleek design. However, that said, the rear is very clunky, snappy and creaky. It feels cheap, and your hands start to sweat a bit after using it.
Personally, I prefer the iPad 2 simply because of it's aluminium design, and the stability of iOS, but if you need Flash, or just want a good tablet, then I'd go for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
