Definitely disappointing. I had hoped they would at least make an effort to catch up to last year's Nexus 7. This is most certainly not what I expected from Samsung for a 'Galaxy'-branded product.
Usually Samsung reserves their 'Galaxy' moniker for their very top end products. This thing is a Asus 7" MeMo pad wannabe.

"Samsung reserves their 'Galaxy' moniker for their very top end products."
Not really. "Galaxy" is used for dozens of phones... Only the "S" is the high end. As for tablets, the Galaxy "tab" line has always been mediocre at best. This is the low end of that for sure.
