    So I'm thinking about going samsung all the way and picking up a galaxy tab to add to my captivate as well (or maybe an archos 10, not sure yet).

    either way, does anyone know how apps are going to work on these things? That is, if I've purchased apps on the marketplace for my cappy, then can I just log in on the tablet as well using my marketplace gmail and re d/l those apps on that device or will they be device specific making me have to pay for each d/l?

    I'm assuming that as long as I'm logged in as myself, I can d/l paid apps on both devices and use both without any issues right??

    I'm so excited to finally get a rockin android tab to shut all these ipad users up!! Flash, here I come!!!! Hopefully Google will open up a tab specific market soon....

    Hopefully the wifi galaxy tab will be here soon -- I most def don't need the 3g since we can always just tether our phones to the tab...

    :D

    It should work correctly. For some apps that connect to their own servers, you may not be able to use both of those at the same time. But there should be no problem downloading and installing.

    Seconded... for Most apps all is well just side loading them... there are some apps that require you to register them by the devices EIN number and thus get tied to a particular device... well number really as it's typically stored in a DB on the device and could be changed though that will affect other things like market access that also create accounts tied to a Unique number obtained from the device... but they typcially are exception not the rule...

    Most of my paid apps were visible on my Archos 5it when I got it and downloaded Market onto it. I hope the same is true on the gtab and the Streak!
