Gizmodo Slams the iPad’s First Rival

Share This:


Gizmodo has reviewed the new Samsung Galaxy Tab, the first ‘iPad rival’ tablet to hit the market. To say that Matt Buchanan, Gizmodo’s reviewer, isn’t impressed with the Galaxy Tab is a huge understatement. The review title dubs the device a ‘pocketable train wreck’.

Here’s just a little slice of what Buchanan doesn’t like about the Galaxy Tab:

This thing is just a mess. It’s like a tablet drunkenly hooked up with a phone, and then took the fetus swimming in a Superfund cleanup site. The browser is miserable, at least when Flash is enabled. It goes catatonic, scrolling is laggy, and it can get laughably bad.

The iPad has been a massive hit and already has a huge head start on its rivals. It looks like the competition is going to have to do much, much better if this review ends up being anything like the typical view on the Galaxy Tab. Check out the full review here:
