Galaxy Tab 10.1

Asus Eee Pad 32GB Transformer
Honeycomb tablets finally deliver

It happened a week later than we originally expected, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is now widely available to purchase in Best Buy stores across America, as well as the obligatory online stores (Amazon, New Egg, et al).

The 10.1-inch, Android Honeycomb 3.1-based tablet has garnered positive reviews, thanks to its slim design, light weight, and commendable battery life — looking like a valid challenger to the iPad's tablet crown.

Powered by a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, the Tab 10.1 comes in 16GB and 32GB iterations, priced at $499 and $599 respectively. Currently, Wi-Fi-only models are all that are available, although an HSPA+ version will be available soon for a $130 premium.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer

I got my Transformer a few weeks ago and I have to say I couldn't be happier with it. It was only $400 (16 gig) and it has expandable memory through a Micro SDHC slot (suck it iFans), a dual-core nVidia Tegra 2 CPU, 1 gig of RAM (again, suck it iFans), and I can get a small docking station for it with a keyboard and mouse finger pad that extends battery life by 6.5 hrs (so it says) to make my overall life 16 hours (instead of 9.5 with just tab). I have to say that I love it, I have only had 1 app close on me once and have not had any other hiccups so far. Video play is fantastic and so is response time between touching the screen and anything moving, it is quite snappy and precise. I would suggest a screen protector, the nice glass on here is shiney as hell and loves to get fingerprints. I have heard a few people talk about the back being plastic and they thought it felt cheap but I have to say it is very sturdy and reassuring feeling. I have yet to drop it and really hope that I don't do it as well. If anyone else has one do you notice the left speaker being slightly louder than the right? That would be the only "complaint" I have with mine, other than that nothing, I would have to say that the Asus Transformer is in the running more so than the Samsung, just me though.

I was just wondering how the specs for this Galaxy Tab compared to the Asus EEE Transformer. Looks like they're fairly close, though the Galaxy is priced ~$100 higher.

If I were to buy a tablet, my choice (currently) would be the Transformer.
