As tablets go, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is a part of a line of Android-based tablet computers being produced by Samsung. It was the first model in the series and introduced on September 2nd of 2010 in Berlin. Since its grand entrance into the world there have been a few different models released. This includes 7.7, 8.9 and 10.1-inch display models. They also have Wi-Fi tabs that are all GPS savvy and have since introduced the 3G and 4G tabs that have phone capabilities; these are now known as “Phablets”.
Giving the Competition a Run for their Money: What’s All the Hype About?
When iPads were first introduced, many wanted to find something less expense and easier to access. With that came the Android Tablet, Samsung wanted to and still wants to make technology easier to access and use; hence the creation of the Galaxy Tab and her siblings that soon followed.
Bigger screens, easier features, and the same apps that other tablet users could access at any given time; gone are the days where you “one day hope to own a tablet of your own”.
Most people like the ease and convenience of a phone but need more; this is where a tablet comes into the picture. Many phones can only handle so much information and show so much display before you need to go bigger without pulling out a laptop or netbook. With a tablet, you have the compact feeling of a phone but the expanded capabilities of a laptop or netbook. However, this does not mean that there is so much hype people are willingly giving up on laptops and netbooks altogether.
The New Becoming Old…
Much like anything else related to technology, the new will become old in the blink of an eye. Now, as mentioned above, we have “phablets”, the phone that is a tablet and the tablet that is a phone. While they have attracted some popularity, they are not as popular as one might think; this is mainly due in part to the fact that no matter how many hybrids are created, people will always want their,
Phone, as they are; all their own and none of the mishmash of a “phablet” or whatever trendsetter will dub the next new thing.
What’s the Next New Thing?
Currently, we are seeing a bit of a rise with “iPad Minis”, which is quite difficult to understand; most are not drawn to the “phablets” but want something smaller by way of their tablet. It is quite the conundrum.
There are also new tablets now available by Windows and Google Nexus; it stands to reason as competitions never end and companies alike are all trying to create and give consumers the next new thing. Soon, you will wonder what more can be created and what more will be done.
Technology is always changing; either to be better or more creative for accessibility and time management as well.
