    Best Buy had this on sale. Being my first tab, I'm super excited! Its updating to 3.2 right now, is there anything special TouchWiz is going to do for me here?

    Thanks!

    The mini-apps and screen capture facility that come with 3.2 are nice, but TW is just "okay." I much prefer Zeam launcher (versions prior to 3.1.10) or SPB Shell 3D.

    Hmm, wasn't aware of that. I tried Go Launcher EX on the tab, and although nice, was just too slow compared to the other two I mentioned (or even Touchwiz). I see that HD is now at v1.0. Does that mean themes and widgets for EX work with it? Any screen shots?

    i would just dl and try it. its free and a very quick install. its quicker for you to install and test than i would be for me to screen shot upload and show. it does have widgets.

    i have tried spb, go regular, adw ex, launcher pro.... this one is the only one currently i like. just waiting for themes.

    Tried Go Launcher HD. Its very smooth, a bit to lazy to set everything up right now. Im going to try Apex Launcher.

    I'm thinking of getting this tab, too, to upgrade from my wifi only 7".

    I'm seeing this on sale for about $400 (U.S.), how much did you pay for yours, and what region are you in, if I may ask?

    Thanks, lucas.

    These things are still getting great reviews as compared to more expensive tabs. Plus I like the idea of sticking with Samsung Galaxy series.

    Yep! Although its a year old, you may still put it in the top 5 for tablets. The build qualty of Samsung is very nice too.

    What was the "sale" price and was it the 16GB or 32GB?

    I bought two about a week ago from Best Buy; price was $469, and included a $25 gift card.

    Congrats on the sale! I have owned a tab 10.1 since last summer and it is amazing!! Definitely an elite tablet and I just can't wait for it to get an official ICS update. :thumbup:

    Congrats! I just ordered one myself. It will be delivered tomorrow. My only worry is the Newton Rings thing. The one I ordered is refurbished but still has very high ratings and I got it from a very well known, legit retailer so I hope it will be problem free!

    What is the Newtons Rings issue? I've seen a it about it. Don't know what it is.

    I believe it's a visible defect between the digitizer and screen. Just google "samsung tab newton rings" and you'll find lots of info and images. It kind of looks like an oil slick under the screen when it's turned off too.
