Samsung has just added a new tablet to its lineup for Galaxy Tab Series. Its new edition is called Galaxy Tab 10.1. In my humble opinion, it is a total failure. A disaster for the company and disappointment to fans all over the world.
The design is good, sleek and stylish. But in an attempt to compete with iPad, It made loads of compromises on functionality and usability. It is not a phone and its not a computer as well, so what is it good for? Browsing the internet! Yeah, you can do that on it.

There is good news for all the Android fans, “Android 3.0 has been released in the market” and it is the most beautiful device ever. This incredible operating system has been released for the Motorola Xoom tablet. This is a marvelous system that has given life to the Android smart phones first and now it is going to make larger touch screens like Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 lavish.
Android 3.0 is expected to be a big hit for tablet PCs of different manufacturers like Acer, HTC, Dell, LG, MSI, Asus and Toshiba. The much enhanced operating system of Google has boasted the number of upgrades.
Android 3.0 Release Date
The release date for the marvelous system named Android 3.0 is not finalized yet and is a bit unclear. The manufacturers of Motorola Xoom have already released it in the United States of America but others are waiting for Google to ensure that they can put their devices for sale in the market.
According to some of the most authentic sources the release of Android 3.0 is expected in just few weeks. People are looking forward to the huge supply of Android 3.0 tablets in the PC market at the time of its release. It is assured that the final launch is going to happen in next few weeks.
Tseng is a senior marketing manager at Google. It is reported that in the year 2008, he didn’t mentioned tablet PCs, but he did revealed a bit about an operating system that is expected to work on different computing devices. He also declared that he was a proud owner of Android prototype phone.
Android 3.0 is an Open Source
Android 3.0 is considered as a project by Google that is open source. It is observed that Google has not managed to make an extraordinary income so far from the operating system and they have planned to generate revenue through their traditional way of ads that show up while you are searching something.
The developers of this operating system have got full access to the base code. They have also gained an access to the search-able documentation.
Flexible Base Code
The only drawback of Android in the past was that its code was really flexible that made easier for it to run on various different kinds of devices. However, the interface of Android is specially designed for smart phones. The Android 3.0 is very incredible in looks as it has been observed that it has made a much better use of the tablets’ screen size.
You can understand it better with the example of Gmail. It runs best on the smart phones in the vertical orientation as it is easy that way to scan through the emails. You can run a preview pane on the right side of your tablet and your messages on the left with the help of Android 3.0 if you are an email client.
The screen size of the tablet is often accommodated with the Android 3.0, but sometimes there are some apps that still run in the smart phone mode. Android 3.0 is supposed to be much sleeker for the tablet PCs in comparison with the iOS 4.3 that is currently running on the iPad 2. The preview of the open apps is shown by the pop-ups that resemble with the thumbnail views. On the other hand the settings are also more advanced along with the status overlays.
It’s nonetheless, era of Android handsets, and whenever there is talk about Android handsets one can’t just forget The Nexus S and Desire HD. They belong to Samsung and HTC family respectively. Galaxy S of the Samsung has already made its mark, whereas HTC Nexus One (HTC) has made its name by becoming Google’s successor. Let’s see which Android outruns the other.
There was always a slight problem running TweetDeck or Angry Birds on handsets but not these handsets. They are elegant, smart and quite enjoyable handsets. Moreover, it’s nonetheless, great surprise to see more than one lack and 20 thousand games and applications restless to be used. In short, the market is full of healthy surprises. The only slight problem with Android 2.3 is that developers haven’t updated the code yet and due to which some applications don’t run.
Tasker, an application which is used for handy control of phone settings has reduced its functionality on NEXUS S, which is quite irritating sometimes. The most difficult part is to compare the two handsets in case of downloads. Both are the equal matches in downloading. With the advent of time apps are increasing day by day, this may damage the attractiveness of Desire HD.
Quality Calling and Battery Timing
The only thing the Desire HD lags is battery timing. It has a huge 4.3-inch LCD screen and only 1230 mAh battery, which only make the thing worse. For those, who are regular mobile users extra battery acts not as a choice but a necessity. Moreover, the battery HTC has used is woefully inadequate for the task at hand. For applications, games and videos the battery just doesn’t fulfill user requirements.
On the contrary, the Nexus S has a battery capacity of 1500 mAh cell. As the screen (AMOLED) is also not too heavy as compared to LCD so battery of NEXUS S appears quite handy. It has quite improved increased stamina and is feasible for running apps, games and videos. Those who prefer long battery timings NEXUS S is the right choice. By being a bit of care the battery can last a couple of days without charge.
Nowadays, the storage is the top priority of users. NEXUS S comes with the pre-storage of 16 GB, which is more than enough for most of the users (quite enough for songs, apps and downloads). However, the problem is that when this storage runs out, there is no external memory microSD card slot.
