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.

Email

Both email and web support are baked right into the Android OS, so it is no surprise that the Galaxy Tab offers excellent email features. There are several email programs built into the device, including one written by Samsung and the Android Gmail client. Both of these are good, but the Gmail client is the better one, with more integration into Google's own mail service. Support is also offered for communicating with a range of other mail servers and services, including POP3, IMAP and Microsoft Exchange support.

Web Browsing

The web browser that is built into the Samsung Tab provides a good range of features, including bookmarking, JavaScript support and multiple windows. It also supports Flash, so you can browse web sites that use flash content.
