We’ve got some shots from Samsung’s teaser video revealing several UI elements of the Galaxy Tab. We’ve got them compared with the iPad UI. To our disappointment, they are very much same as the iPad.
Here’s the QWERTY keyboard of the Samsung Galaxy Tab on the left and the virtul QWERTY of the iPad on the right. Yea, I have to tell you, otherwise you’d think both are the snaps of the iPad QWERTY at different angles.
I dunno. There are similarities, but then neither Apple or Samsung are reinventing the wheel here. Stuff looks like other stuff, people need to get over this.
One thing that does strike me is how Samsung seems to be able to cram more features onto the screen without making the UI look cluttered. Take the email client for example:
To my eye, this looks more like the Gmail interface.
I'm far more concerned about screen size and price than a few similarities in the UI to the iPad.
