    I hope I am posting this in the right area. I am a current BB user and looking to move to Android. I would like to know what the group thinks on this question. I am looking to get either a Evo or a Galaxy Tab. I basically live on my BB. Web surfing, email (personal and work), music player, texting ect..which would the group buy....evo or galaxy tab. Also any idea as to what the pricing will be from Sprint on the tab? Thanks for the help

  2. goblue42,

    You and I are in the same boat. While I am going to keep my Blackberry Bold as my business phone, I am looking for a bit more excitement out of my personal phone (Blackberry 8330).

    I am looking long and hard at the EVO. It has a lot of features that would make having a phone fun again (not saying I don't have fun with my Blackberries, it is just they are more for business).

    The main reason why I haven't gotten the EVO is it several months old and I have a feeling, Sprint will get a much better Android phone than the EVO/Epic. So I may play the waiting game.

    The challenge with moving to the Galaxy tab is that it does not have a cellular radio in it... only 3G data. As such you can't really use it as a phone unless you planned to use Google Voice or Skype Mobile.

    it does do calls.. and its not google voice :p but the spec of the Galaxy tab and Evo are the same... except the evo has capability and its pocketable. THe EVo would be the best buy with all the perks of the tab plus more!

    <-- proud EVO owner

    Yea although the tab looks tempting I'm very happy with my Evo, I always consider it as a mini tab anyway. Big gorgeous screen, has 4G, the ffc and sense UI (preference). The Evo just makes more sense to me because with all its rest features its still a phone and is more pocketable.

    You could always use FringOUT. 1 cent per minute in the U.S. as long as you have some type of data connection. Of course, I'm not sure if it'll work on the Tab, but it theoretically it should.

    There are two things about the Tab that concerns me - the exorbitant price and the size. 7" is small for a tablet, but is too big for a phone. I would never want to be caught talking on one of those things. But if features are alone the criteria, then I would say the tab is marginally ahead. But only because they released later.

    The EVO definitely, the tab would be to big for a phone and it's to small for a tablet computer. From what I understand about the Galaxy tab it's supposed more of a computer than a phone. Like another poster said the EVO is a mini tablet.
