Find the Tablet

Jeffrey Powers and Roger Bindl team for this interview with Sprint at 4G World demonstrating the Samsung Galaxy Tab, a 3G, Android 2.2 device that will launch November 14, 2010.

As can be seen in this video, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is about half the size of the Apple iPad. Based on the text on the Sprint web site, form factor is a key feature of this device (fits in a pocket). At $399 (after $50 activation fee), it is significantly less expensive than the equivalent 16 Gbyte iPad which retails for $629, although the equivalent data plan is slightly more expensive ($29 /month for 2 Gigabytes vs. $25 for 2 Gigabytes from AT&T).

In this video, a Sprint Overdrive WiFi hotspot served up wireless Internet via 4G. Although it is a cool device, integration of the 4G capability is something that would really set it apart from the tablet competition.
