Wired: Samsung Galaxy Tab, a Minitablet


The most immediately noteworthy difference from the iPad is that the Galaxy is considerably smaller — physically about half the size and weight, with a 7-inch diagonal screen instead of the iPad’s 9.7 inches. However, the Tab’s 1024 x 600–pixel resolution makes this less of a big deal than you might expect. Considering the iPad’s 1024 x 768–pixel resolution, you’ll find the Tab nearly as spacious, although the screen (a standard LCD) is not as bright and as clear as the iPad’s beauty.

The Galaxy Tab’s display seems quite good and Wired terms it a minitablet, a new class of mobile device, and not a director competitor to the iPad, a bona fide tablet.
