Video: Typical session with Samsung Galaxy Tab

Summary:I routinely hear statements about the Samsung Galaxy Tab that are false, and the easiest way to prove that is to show a typical work session with the Galaxy Tab on video.

All of the tablet buzz has shifted to the 10-inch form factor with the exception of a few hardy 7-inchers coming soon. Samsung started the 7-inch touch tablet phenomenon with the original Galaxy Tab, although it has left the small form behind with its upcoming Galaxy Tab 10.1.

I am barraged by communication with folks about the original Galaxy Tab that makes incorrect assumptions: the 7-inch form is only as useful as a small smartphone; Android 2.2 (Froyo) is no good on tablets; the Galaxy Tab is not a good touch tablet. In my daily usage of the Tab I know that these statements are false, and the easiest way to prove that is to show a typical work session with the Galaxy Tab on video.

This work session shows working with Twitter (Plume), checking RSS feeds (gReader Pro), mind mapping (Thinking Space Pro), web browsing (Dolphin Browser HD), working with Calendar (Tab version), handling email (Tab version), using Pocket Informant, and listening to Music (Tab version).
