I'm considering purchasing one, and was interested in thoughts/ opinions of any one who uses one, or even of the older iterations of the Galaxy tab. What are your likes/ dislikes? Any input would be appreciated- thanks.
stevee90 saidI didn't know this until just now, but it's pretty important for anyone looking for a tablet that can support web browsing experience similar to that of a desktop/laptop.
For those who are too lazy to read the full article, basically the Adobe decided not to continue on with its support to mobile browsing anymore, which means any android platform 4.1 Jellybeans and up will NOT receive Adobe flash support. This means that you will not be able to view flash content with its default browser, but rather have to download browsers that do support flash content - much like what you have to do on an iPad or an iPhone.
This is a rather alarming update because a huge number of supporters of Android OS depended on the browsing experience that was more extensive than that of an iOS.
The good news is that adobe will continue to provide flash support to the operating systems that precede Android 4.1, which includes Android 4.0 of Ice Cream Sandwich. So, yes, you will still be able to view flash contents on the default browser on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. As for Nexus 7, you will have to find a browser that comes equipped with Adobe Air, because its default browser will not support Adobe Flash.
Sungod17 saidWow, thanks for all the input guys.
I've checked out all the online reviews(CNET, etc.) and they do give the edge to the Nexus. I'm just trying to figure out which is more important to me- the faster processor/better display vs. expandable storage.
I'm going back to Staples this afternoon and play with them some more. My local store has both on display connected to wifi. They're getting tired of seeing me there I think.
Samsung does make a USB connector for the Galaxy- it's about $20.
And yes, a smartphone will do most of what a tab will(& other things) but I don't have one and have no intention of getting a s-phone- I don't want/need monthly contract/service. This is for occasional use/traveling.
Any of you actually have either The Galaxy or Nexus yet?
Sungod17 saidWell, I just came back from two hours in Staples playing with tablets. After giving both the Galaxy and the Nexus a good workout, I decided that the Nexus was the better machine.
The speed, smoothness, and display of the Nexus far outweighs it's drawbacks- mostly no rear camera and no expandable storage.
However, the problem is now trying to buy one. The store had only the display model in the 16GB, and they weren't sure when they would be getting more. The manager told me that they were unloading a truck now and that there might be some on it; call after 4:00pm and ask.
