    I have the Galaxy Tab and it tends to lock up on many occasions when using an app overall it works most of the time. However I do like that they have come out with a larger screen.

  • Is the under 7" tablet dead?

    I would really like a tablet. I have even looked at the samsung tab but they are just too big to be a phone replacement. I think Dell made a perfect size with the 5" but unfortunately it doesn't work with sprint. That is good for a tablet and still small enough to be considered a phone. Too bad there aren't 5 or 6 inch tablets coming up.

      @tommcd64 - not at all, it's just called a phone.

    • Is the under 7" tablet dead?

      @tommcd64 -- The naysayers on the Streak-5 abound, but their arguments, typically based on their personal preferences, tend to be quite weak. Size is indeed a personal choice, and what I believe manufacturers will slowly begin to realize is that there is as-yet-unrecognized demand for voice-capability in a variety of sizes -- especially with the expanding use of bluetooth headsets. I would love to see more voice-capable products in the 5-6" range -- unfortunately, Dell dropped the ball so badly in rolling out and marketing the Streak-5, that they actually did damage to the "category". There was to be something close to a 5" model coming out from Acer, but I've not heard anything recently.

    I have a Xoom and we are enjoying each other. The screen keyboard is easier to use than expected. (I also bought a blue-tooth keyboard but haven't used it yet.) THe only thing I haven't figured out is how long it lasts on a charge.

    TOday I'm downloading the Amazon app market to see what I can find to play with. What I need is a word processor (other than Google, since that only works on-line.)

    Any tablet above 7" should be called a laptop. When you can't hold a tablet with one hand what's the whole purpose of a tablet, you might as well buy yourself a laptop.
