Samsung Galaxy Tab

If you live near a Futureshop and have yet to pick up an Android tablet yet for whatever reason -- this might be your weekend to set aside the time to do so. Right now -- Futureshop has the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi version coming with 16GB of storage on sale for only $400 until February 10th. That's $100 off the original price for Futureshop and one heck of a deal on a great tablet. Need to know more about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1? You can check out our full review or hit up the Futureshop link below.

For the same $400, you could pick up a quad-core 16GB ASUS Transformer Prime, currently the best Android tablet on the market.

Don't get me wrong, the Galaxy Tab is great but it's almost a year old.

The Galaxy Tab's GPS does actually work though.

After it gets ICS, it will, it'll feel like a whole new tablet, my xoom did.

According to xda forums, the latest patch might help those GPS problems.

That's the best thing about Asus: they actually update their products and will continue to do so.

I wouldn't hold my breadth with Samsung.

I agree with that. My Xoom felt so different after it got ics

I thought the Transformer Prime was $500? Did they drop the price?

deltatux says:

Ummm, the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime doesn't have a 16 GB model. The 32 GB model which is the cheapest model of the Prime is $499.

Seeing that the comparable ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 16 GB (TF101) sells for $399 permanently, Samsung should just discount it permanently because the normal price of $499 for a previous generation 16 GB model doesn't cut it anymore.

Do remember that FutureShop is a Canadian retailer, all prices in Canadian Dollars (not that it really matter seeing exchange rate is essentially 1:1 right now).

You're actually absolutely right. My mistake. The 16GB Transformer I saw was the original Transformer, not the current Transformer Prime.

Sorry, I rather have a tablet that works as advertised. Haven't had nothing but all kinds of major issues with asus tablets. We have two in the family, that galaxy tab 10.1 is just a much better tablet, better screen too

to buy any tablet over $300 at this point it has to be top of the line... this isnt.

kindaskimpy says:

It was a year ago but, right now? Not so much. The market is over-saturated with dual core Android tablets and like you said, spending this money on a year old tablet? Not wise.

strikethree says:

I see people spend over $200+ on crap Vizio and G-Tablets on woot! and other discount sites...

Then people ask why Android gets a bad rap for performance. I would smile and thank someone if they gave me it as gift since it was done with the best of intentions, but I wouldn't give these crap tablets to even my worst enemy.

But yeah, it goes to show how people are so oblivious to what's out there in software and hardware.

I'm deciding between this, the 8.9, the Prime or the next gen iPad. I think I'm holding off for the iPad though.

impulse101 says:

Really an iPad? A low resolution 4:3 ratio (almost) isheep device? Seriously?

JStewartx says:

No he said "next gen ipad." A high resolution 4:3 ratio (almost) isheep device

jnl813 says:

so I just bought this from Craigslist for $330 you guys are telling me that I paid too much?

Got Rogers 3G (faux-G) model for 375$ on Kijijii in early december.. =)

I would have probably bought the Galaxy Tab if it had expandable memory. It was a stupid design decision to not include it. So I recently got a Transformer Prime and am not happy with its poor GPS and wifi range, locked bootloader (although it will soon be unlocked), and I like the screen better on the Galaxy Tab. But the expandable memory trumped all this since I would not consider a tablet that had less memory than my phone.
