First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Best alternatives to the iPad 2
- — 24 March, 2011 10:50
Despite being the dominant player in the relatively new tablet market, there is set to be plenty of valid alternatives to the iPad 2, particularly Android tablets.
The newest of these is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v, which will launch in Australia in mid-April through Vodafone. Samsung is serious about the tablet market — the company will also launch the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and a thinner, lighter version of Galaxy Tab 10.1 with the same name. Both of these new Android tablets will hit Australia sometime between July and September.
7 / 12
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G is Australia's first 4G tablet, offering impressive data speeds and a size and weight that we think is near perfect. However, Telstra's currently limited 4G coverage, a high price tag and some niggling software issues mean you should probably give the Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G a miss, at least for now.
