So, what do folks think - should I go looking for the Galaxy Tab 8.9?
I'm totally biased here.
Frankly, I'm not a fan of the Samsung tablets (with the sole exception of Galaxy Note).
Whenever I start any of my Samsung Tablets, the SD card is checked for media content. This takes quite some time and is rather annoying. I haven't added a single file. So why does the tablet have to check again?
And I'm not a fan of the saturation on Samsung tablets. Some love the colors for being that vivid. I find them un-natural looking.
I know, it's not a hit. But personally, I really prefer Motorola Xoom 2 Media edition over any Samsung tablet.
Motorola Xoom 2 ME has phantastic speakers, is extremely well designed (whereas I usually find Samsung gadgets kind of "plasticky").
But again: I'm biased, I admit it...
