The year 2010, brought with it a lot of promising gadgets ranging from smartphones to Tablets and much more. If we were to pick the most exciting product it has to be the Tablet, as the next generation of mobile computing products were I think one of the most talked about products throughout the year, largely due to the high flying and high selling iPad. One other product was Galaxy Tab which has been termed by Wired as one of the most significant gadgets of 2010. Find out why after the jump.
The high profile WIRED has declared Samsung Galaxy Tab as the surprise hit of the season:
Call this the surprise hit of the season: The first Android-based tablet to be a credible contender to the iPad, the Galaxy Tab is a remarkably usable tablet that’s got a lot going for it.
It’s considerably smaller than the iPad, with a 7-inch diagonal screen compared to the iPad’s 9.7 inches. But with an almost identical 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, it’s got just as much screen real estate — and it’s a good deal more portable.
Add the full Android market, a decent camera, the ability to turn itself into a mobile hotspot, and a removable microSD card slot, and you’ve got bragging rights that your Mac-loving friends can’t match.
And although Steve Jobs sneered at the diminutive size of 7-inch tablets, there’s clearly a market for them: The Galaxy Tab sold 1 million units in its first two months. – Dylan Tweney
While the declaration of Galaxy Tab as a significant gadget is all good, one just wonders will it be significant this year considering a slew of Honeycomb Tablets scheduled to go live this year?
