Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and iPad compared

How will the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 compare to the iPad 2? Seth Weintraub at Fortune highlights four points where the Samsung scores well compared to the iPad:

  • Runs on HSPA+ ‘4G’ networks at up to 21Mbps without sending it back to the shop
  • It somehow weighs less than the iPad 2 Wifi at 599 grams with 4G equipment!
  • It has an 8-megapixel rear camera with auto focus vs.<1 megapixel fixed focus iPad and 5 megapixel on XOOM
  • Dual surround sound speakers.

Looking at those, my first thought is “good luck with battery life”. The same weight (it’s a gram less) plus HSPA+ is going to hurt the battery life quite a bit.

    one big saving is plastic vs metal – but yeah what percentage of the weight/volume is the iPad battery 60%+ ?

    no android device has got a day+ battery life yet. unless you 2G it

    Over 60% I think, now that the screen has slimmed down a bit.
