    The Galaxy Tab is what I expected it to be.
    It is fast and Android Gingerbread is good.
    3.6" is just the right size to hold it in my hand.
    I only found two things that I don't like:
    The GPS is not working (in Nova Scotia, Canada).
    The screen is hard to see in daylight. In fact I already knew about this, but I use it indoors 99% of the time.
    For reading ebooks is excellent, I installed FBReader and reading epub books is a pleasure.

    Does so much

    I am sure this will be awesome once I figure out how to get it setup. I sometimes need a little help
    figuring things out from others.

      Use primarily at home to listen to online radio which it does very well. Speakers are very good. Listen to podcast lectures when out. File system is better suited for music. Screen is far too small to comfortably read web content.

        Works great. It's like having a smartphone, but you don't have to pay the data plan, and cheaper than an iPod Touch. The drawback of course is that you can only connect to the Internet, chat, etc through wi-fi, but this is exactly what I wanted because where I live there's a lot of wi-fi connections. It's light and fits in my pocket. I like to use it to listen to music at the gym, work, in the kitchen, etc and being able to download useful Android apps is an additional bonus.

          The Samsung Galaxy Mp3 player really does the job. Similar in size to a cell phone, it is easy to find a case that fits. The Battery life is great, and because it runs android I am able to use apps from the Google Play store.I love this Mp3 player.

                The screen isn't as good as an ipod's and it is not as responsive. Also the commands on the earphones don't always work for some reason. But lots of things are easier to do, and I really like how everything is organized.

                  Excellent device that works very well, so long as you don't use a Class 4 card with it - I kept getting SD card corruption. Swapped in a Class 10 card and no issues since.

                  Easy to use; GPS works great; very happy with the purchase!

                        I bought the 3.6 for my 7 year old and the 5.0 for my 11 year old. We are an android loving household. I have a Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy players are very similar to a Samsung cell phone - minus the phone part. The kids love them and have used them extensively since getting them. Once piece of advice to consider - cases for these are limited.

                              have not had a chance to use the product yet, but after playing around with it for a little bit, seems to function fast and has many usefull tools.

                                I use to have the iPod, but got tried of the fixed capacity and not being able to click and drag. Finally with the Samsung Galaxy Player I really believe a better option is now available.The sound quality is as good as any apple option and you have a lot of control over the sound with a good equalizer and sound effects.I now just hope the durability is good, but so far Samsung products have been reliable. Its still early to say with my Galaxy Player, but I will update the review if anything happens....so far so good

                                I not only bought one of these I bought 2, These are awesome I bought for both my girls, and they love the point of having a touch screen product, I like the point of them having a Android product, it is very easy to setup and another great part is that it syncs with a "Google Account" I am a BIG fan of Android, and Google for their products, and I have no plans of ever returning to a apple device, to difficult and to limited to what you can do or have on it, plus there are so many apps out there for Android products that you can get for FREE, that you have to pay for with apple devices. Plus some apps in Google Play you cannot even get on an apple device. ANDROID & GOOGLE ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!

                                      This little tablet works very well on most stuff.
                                      I bought it for my granddaughter and she loves it. It will not however allow voice messaging over the text and talk app. Texting is no problem, but when someone calls or when she trys to call someone it just says voice messageing is not supported. The battery life is totally insufficient, but with those two exceptions it is a great little device.

                                        The Galaxy Tab is what I expected it to be.
                                        It is fast and Android Gingerbread is good.
                                        3.6" is just the right size to hold it in my hand.
                                        I only found two things that I don't like:
                                        The GPS is not working (in Nova Scotia, Canada).
                                        The screen is hard to see in daylight. In fact I already knew about this, but I use it indoors 99% of the time.
                                        For reading ebooks is excellent, I installed FBReader and reading epub books is a pleasure.
