Default samsung galaxy tab

I am looking to buy an ipad or the samsung galaxy ... but I don't really know what is the best choice, I also have several questions

basically I want something I can carry to watch movies listen to songs use the internet read ebooks some decent games and I don't want laptops anymore. I don't want to buy an ipad(my bro got an iphone and the whole jailbreaking/sim breaking shit seemed like too much trouble, especially if you want to update the firmware.) I wonder if the samsung tab is different...

can you get a 3G into the samsung galaxy tabs? or a cellphone sim card somehow? does it need jailbreaking and sim breaking and all that? does it have a wide range of applications and games? does anyone own one? thank you

You should wait for an Android tab that will run Android 4.0

Android tabs are better than the iPad when it comes to watching movies, they have a higher Aspect Ratio, which is awesome for widescreen movies.

Look into Galaxy Tab 10.1.

well it's not practical as a phone, but I think it is practical as a portable computer... but I am willing to buy it its own independent phone sim just for internet...

whatever it is stay away from anything that apple makes , check the htc jetstream , or htc flyer. or maybe kindle fire? or like tawa said wait for the android 4.0 tabs, quadcores and many great new features and ui

I'm not a heavy mobile/laptops user honestly. I have this awesome PC with 3 terra byte storage and 1 GB VGA etc... that handles EVERYTHING easily with HD, I am just looking for something to pass the time when I am away in some mountain with relatives I hate etc... bas anyway new stuff make older stuff cheaper so I might wait anyway, in the meantime get my info straight about everything

Default Playbook

I would recommend the BlackBerry Playbook. Best UI, Best tablet for watching movies, and best speakers among all tables, has a great solid built and you can bridge it to any blackberry phone for e-mailing and browsing outside a WIFI coverage.
