In the Box

The Samsung Galaxy Tab comes with three non-manual objects in its box: a USB cable, a wall plug adapter for said USB cable, and a cheap pair of headphones.

Handling

The Tab isn't a small device. It LCD touchscreen is a big 7 inches and a bit on the heavy side, so it might feel a bit awkward to hold with a single hand. Holding it with two hands is much more comfortable, and the bezels to the sides of the touchscreen provide a good gripping area.

There are a handful of touch controls located just under the screen that offer haptic feedback when tapped. They're a bit of a reach from a natural grip, but they're in no way a pain to access.
