Samsung revealed the Galaxy Tab 750, the latest Android powered Tablet device in India few days ago. It is basically the Galaxy Tab 10.1 released after the grand success of its predecessor the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.
This new released tablet is capable of giving a big time competition to one of the most popular tablet, Apple iPad 2. It has been also reported that Apple have charged the Samsung for copying its design but this accusation has been denied by the Korean company.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 launched last year was priced at Rs 30,000 and was a huge success in Indian market. To meet the need of general people in India Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tab 750 that is priced around Rs 36,200 with additional new features. It will be available in Indian markets soon and in the other part of the world too by the end of this month.
The 10.1 inch Samsung Galaxy 750 Tab delivers a bright and large screen to the users. It runs on Android V3.1 Honeycomb OS, specially optimized and designed for Tablets by Google. It is powered by super cool 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core processor for superb performance.
Samsung has learnt a lot from their latest high end smartphone Galaxy SII and designed the Galaxy 750 Tab giving more importance to the slim factor. That adds to its classy and eye-catching look which drives the consumer crazy. The new Samsung Galaxy 750 Tab is thinner when compared to Apple iPad 2, it is around 8.6mm whereas the iPad 2 is 8.8mm. Definitely this 0.2mm difference is not a big deal can be only measured by Vernier scale, but it adds to the attractive features of Samsung Galaxy 750 Tab.
The Galaxy 750 Tab weighs 565 grams while the 3G+ Wi-Fi version of the iPad 2 weighs 607 grams, these 42 grams may not sound much but it makes a huge difference for the users who are conscious about the weight of the device. It also makes a big difference when you are holding it. Samsung has also chosen to forgo extensive use of metal like its foray products, this might make it look attractive but this is the factor which will make Apple iPad 2 users to turn their nose up.
The Battery life of Samsung Galaxy 750 Tab will surely not disappoint you, like Apple iPad 2 – it gives you outstanding talk time and manages to provide 10 to 11 hours of continuous usage. One can’t deny the fact that the Battery of the iPad 2 is not removable this is a little inconvenient for its users.
