    Hey all, I really need some input from the community! I got a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 a couple of weeks ago, and I love it, BUT...... I have some major concerns.

    First, the whole App 2 SD thing. Is not being able to move apps to SD an ICS limitation or an oversight on Samsung's part? Does anyone know for sure that a software update is going to fix this? I ask because I've only had this tablet for one and a half weeks, and I've already used almost 2 GB of the available 4.59 GB and I haven't really downloaded many apps. Just the usual FB, Weather Channel, eBay, etc., and a couple of games, none of which take up more than 6 MB (okay, okay, except for one Angry Birds game which takes up 27 MB, but come on). How can this be? If I expect this tablet to last me for several years, I think I'm going to need more storage. Or am I doing something wrong?

    Second, I noticed that the GT2 keeps dropping my WiFi connection. Then I read the "WiFi Death Grip" post below and realized that the exact same thing was happening to my GT2! When I hold it in portrait mode, if my hand covers the lower left corner, that's when my WiFi drops. Is this a problem with my specific device (and therefore I should exchange it) or do all the GT2's have this problem?

    Thirdly, last night the screen did something weird when using the Internet. I don't know how to describe it exactly except to say that the page got all scrambled. I would describe it best like those puzzle games we had when we were kids with the tiles all scrambled up and you have to slide the tiles into the correct order. Different "chunks" of the page were in the wrong spot! Does that make sense? So I shut down the tablet, restarted it, and still the problem persisted. Then a few minutes later all of a sudden the screen just corrected itself. Has anyone else had this problem?

    So I'm really not sure if I should keep this device (which I love despite the above concerns - especially PEEL, how cool is that?), exchange it for another one, or just return it and get something different altogether? Please remember that I am a complete newbie to the whole tablet thing, so any and all comments and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    There looks to be a way to install apps to SD card location. How to Install Apps to SD Card Without Android Rooting

    I never had a WIFI drop. Check to see if your router is 100%. I change my router every 3 years or so. They always degrade due to usage and heat.

    Maybe you should look into an iPad. Less options meaning less headaches for people.
