The Samsung Galaxy Tab is considered to be the first serious contender to the iPad's spot as the king of tablets. It bests the iPad in several ways: It's smaller, lighter, and all-around more portable. It has both a front and rear camera, where the iPad has neither. And it has and it runs on Android 2.2, which allows for a more open-ended experience than Apple's iOS (including support for Flash video!). But, the Android Marketplace isn't equipped for tablets yet, so you're left to run apps made for phones on a larger screen, and for some reviewers, the 7-inch screen is too small for comfortable typing, but still too big to carry around in anything other than a bag. It's up to personal taste to determine which is the winner, but as of right now, consumers have two excellent slate choices: the Galaxy Tab, and the iPad.
