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.
