Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus for T-Mobile available Nov.16


Phones are more expensive than netbooks too. I can use my tab10.1 for almost everything and i can literally take it anywhere and the battery lasts 2 days with moderate use. It costs more because the tech is worth more.

The key word here is "almost". A netbook, while underpowered, can fully replace a notebook. Bank access (via USB card reader), large storage (>300GB), productivity software tools (I use regularly at least half a dozen of those, and no, there are no apps for what I need).

"cost more because the tech is worth more" -- well, it's not worth more to me if it does less. I don't care if they put gold into the tablets, until they can do more than netbooks, I cannot justify the purchase.

Phones are something else, you always have them with you, the price is often subsidized, etc...

My thoughts exactly. There are clear advantages with tablets (portability, easier use), but there are disadvantages as well (keyboard, connectivity options, storage, software compatibility), so in the end I would expect tablets to go for at least $100 less than comparable netbooks. The new Kindle Fire and Nook seem like steps in the right direction...

Next year HTC and Samsung will be putting phone radios in things like this and calling them smart phones.
