"The Samsung Galaxy Tab is the first true contender to Apple's tablet crown, but has Samsung bitten off more than it can chew? Russell Barnes spends a week with the Tab to find out

"Pros: Beautifully crisp screen with excellent viewing angles, excellent form factor, world-class build quality

"Cons: Expensive retail price, proprietary connector, slippery curved back, lack of UI tweaks and dedicated software

"It's the oldest cliché in the book, but size matters, and in no place is this more contentious right now than in tablet computing. Without wishing to wade headlong into the tablet form factor debate, we've never been entirely convinced that 9.7 inches is really the sweet spot for tablet design Cupertino would have us believe. After spending the last week with Samsung's Galaxy Tab – the first true contender to the iPad's crown – we're more confident than ever that our hunch was sound."
