Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1: A Champion Tablet

I hate Monday mornings, not particularly fond of Tuesday’s either. If you come to think of it I am not a weekday person at all! Here’s the thing. Each of my bleary eyed (weekday) mornings is a choice between breakfast and the previous day’s pending presentation on my laptop (yeah yeah..I’m a cribber, sue me!!)  It was just the other day when I was travelling in the Delhi metro to work (it takes 2 hours from the house to reach my office which without a doubt makes my morning blues worse) that yet another pressing deadline conveniently landed itself into my lap. I had no choice but to fit my derriere in minimum possible space available in the already overcrowded metro and to start typing on my 2.3 kg laptop was just the icing on the cake. And what could be more annoying than the fact that your laptop’s battery goes off just at the time when you are about to finish your presentation… exactly I felt like pulling out my hair at that point of time…

They say that necessity is the mother of invention; it was at that moment when I realized that I needed something better than a laptop, something that was light, small and powerful enough to meet my (a working woman’s) computing needs. Something, that I could work on while on the move and most importantly have a good battery life. Enter ‘The Tablet’.

So, here I am reviewing Samsung’s latest offering ‘The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1’ which is easily synonymous with convenience and utility. Though this $499 tablet is not the ultimate dent in the universe, but it‘s my love for the android operating system that made me hanker after new tablet from the cache of Samsung. Let‘s have a closer look at the Samsung Galaxy tab 2 10.1 which is making quite a stir in the tablet market.

It goes without saying that I always fancied a tablet which I could grab with one hand. The 8.6mm thickness of Samsung Galaxy tab 2 10.1 gives me a new level of comfort where in I can just scoop up the tablet with one hand whenever I am on move.

The Samsung tab is the world’s thinnest tablet till date with Android 3.1 Honeycomb Operating System which off course has made the user interface more intuitive and user friendly.  The 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor simplifies multi tasking and makes it an effortless job.

A really neat application of Samsung Galaxy tab is Polaris office (Document Editor) which I find really handy when it comes to managing tight deadlines (especially while travelling).

The core essence of Samsung Tab 2 10.1 is it multi touch interface TouchWiz UX or TouchWiz 4.0  which includes a live panel and lets you to customize with different content, such as your pictures, bookmarks, and social feeds. Clearly this feature of Samsung makes it stand out from the Tablet crowd.

The Samsung tablet sports a 10.1 inches capacitive touch screen which is a visual delight and its 3 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front cameras impart sheer brilliance to pictures.
