My first impressions with the Galaxy Tab 10.1I recently got my first tablet. I ended up with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. I did consider the iPad 2 & 3.
My reasons for going with the Android tablet were:
- I have already invested in the Android platform in the form of my Nexus S phone.
- The iPads tight integration with iTunes for transferring were not ideal.
- The tablet were also ment as entertainment for the kids and the flash support would give access to more online universes for the kids. On the other hand the iPad had a few more danish apps for the kids. But flash support won that battle.
- The better cameras that I use for video calls also spoke in favor of the Galaxy Tab.
Using a Google Apps account with the tabletI used my Google Apps account to setup the Galaxy Tab. When I tried to access the Google Play store my searches didn't return any results.
I tried to google it but I couldn't find any information on what could cause this. One day I added a "classic" Google account and suddenly the search in the Play Store app worked.
Waiting for the ICS updateNow I'm just waiting for the Ice Cream Sandwich update. I run that on my phone and really miss the Chrome browser.
The update has started rolling out in Canada. Why is Canada the first country to get this update? Another option is the Cyanogenmod 9 but that does not have support for the camera yet. So for me that is not an option. I just have to wait.
