Samsung Galaxy Tab Tablet eBook Reader Review
We were impressed with the Galaxy Tab: it offers a lot of power in a fairly small package.
Device & Specs
The Kindle's eInk display creates an experience that's very similar to reading print. The Tab, on the other hand, relies on an LCD. Whiel the LCD will let you read in pitch-black environments, typically the Tab will do better in brighter scenarios.
Android is a very open platform and lets you download many eBook apps, including one for the Amazon's eBook store. The Kindle, on the other hand, exists in a walled garden where non-Amazon eBooks exist merely in legend.
The Kindle has some online features, such as a full browser, the ability to download eBooks over 3G, and a few apps. The Tab, on the other hand, has Android behind it, which is an established platform for mobile programs. This isn't much of a contest: the Tab has far, far better internet features than the Kindle.
