Celcom Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 .vs iPad 2
Celcom Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was on the news today.
It’s interesting to note Apple .vs Samsung isn’t over – Germany is banned from selling, Australia still waiting and now Apple kicking Samsung’s butt in Japan. We are lucky Malaysian, we get to buy without obligation.
If you want to know where to buy Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 – Apparently Celcom are the only sole distributor telco in Malaysia for now.
It’s very obvious from the photos above both device look pretty similar, even to the point how the products was presented online. I guess you can’t blame Apple throwing a bad apple at Samsung!
You have to admit Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a beauty. Apple has always been about precise, clean presentation and Samsung a good student.
Specs & Price Fight – Samsung 16GB Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi + 3G .Vs iPad 16GB Wi-Fi + 3G
Look closely and compare side by side the device specs between the two, you can’t help but notice Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is really powerful. I also notice that the device has a beautiful back, lighter weight and clean finishing – it’s not the same during the announcement of Samsung Galaxy 10.1 back in February in Barcelona this year.
Full HD video playback on Samsung Galaxy 10.1 is a steal! Although you can get a 32″ LED or LCD with full HD capable almost a same price or cheaper – on a small device like this, one it’s not too bad to carry around.
International Price Comparison
The BESTBUY price tag for Samsung Galaxy 10.1 at USD499.99(RM1495) is cheaper than iPad 2 for a whooping USD130! Since the website didn’t mention any contract, I take it as good that’s the real best price!
Celcom Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Price
Retail recommended price in Malaysia is RM1899 (USD635) and you can owned one with slightly cheaper price when you sign up for 1 or 2 year data contract. Now it’s a good time to get one, do it before 25th september 2011 you may win a grand reward of RM5000 and as well 10% discount on accessories at selected Celcom Blue Cube outlets.
I seriously think that Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is iPad 2 biggest contender (with hardwares reference).
