    Be interested to hear...

    What was it about the Tab that got you to pull the credit card out,
    and has it turned out to be what you expected?

    I bought it cause I'm a gadget whore. Does pretty much what my EVO does but on a larger scale. I love my tab!

    Thats me, I am planning to get the Samsung Galaxy S Tablet because I love stuff like it even though I already have a Samsung Vibrant.

    I did it for the same reason most of you did., because I'm a geek, and proud of it. Also, the portability is leaps and bounds ahead of the ipad (which did have, but sold). I also have a mytouch 4g which I use to tether because 2gigs is a joke.

    I am probably the biggest geek out of all my friends and this is a good device to go hand in hand with my Captivate. My captivate lasts through the day now since I do most of my browsing on the Tab. My vision is also getting a bit iffy and the Tab helps out in that department too. It really is a perfect size to hold in one hand and type in the other, but just big enough to read a book and browse the internet comfortably.

    I bought it because I, too, am a gadget whore. It also goes nicely with my Samsung Fascinate, Samsung Epic 4G, and Samsung Focus :)

    Bought it so I can leave my 17" personal macbook at Home on travel, and just take the (required) company windoze notebook for business, and everything else on the Tab! Any phone screen is too small for browsing for me.

    I have a bigger issue. I bought not one, but two! I bought both a Sprint and an ATT version. I was going to decide between them and take one back, however, I want to keep both of them!

    I like the styling of the Sprint (and the fact that I get excellent coverage at work) and I like the plan flexibility of the ATT version as well as the built in memory.

    Every time I decide which one to keep, I cannot get rid of the other one.

    Anyone else keeping 2? Maybe that is a little excessive?

    I got it as an early Christmas present from my boyfriend, lol. But now having used it I totally would have bought it myself.

    You said it man, lol.

    I would like a Tab but its not practical enough to purchase one. I understand that most of you that purchased it just to have an extra nice gadget. But I dunno... I may jump on board the Tab train maybe when the archos comes out.

    I had both the Verizon and Sprint one simultaneously at one point. Unfortunately, it was pretty easy to give up the Verizon one.

    If I were you, I'd ditch the AT&T one unless somehow you were able to grandfather into an unlimited data plan. :/

    I actually bought mine because i thought it would solve all my problems... and it did :D

    I'm always on the go and used to drag backpack around with me filled with all my sh*t...

    Now I can make phone calls,
    write emails,
    use the internet,
    schedule appointments,
    give a powerpoint,
    watch a movie,
    read a newspaper, book or magazine,
    listen to the radio, mp3's or stream music,
    have a navi for my car,
    etc, etc...

    and all i have to take is my galaxy tab! (ok... the charger is also useful on busy days :rolleyes: )

    One could argue that this was already possible with some smartphones and i did try that, but for me the screens were just to small to be practical. So for my the seven inches were are most revolutionary. Believe it or not (ladies) sometimes seven inch is better then 10 ;)

    EDIT: spellingcheck :)

    I have it because it is much more readable than my Desire screen, I also just use wifi because I will not pay the AT&T ripoff prices for tab data but when I am away from a hotspot, I just create one with my Desire and use the $15.00 unlimited data on my phone that I have had for, four years and I get the advantage of a larger screen!!! Just hate putting out that much cash to AT&T but then again my Desire was just as expensive so it is a wash either way!!!
