Samsung Galaxy Tab G-PT1000 (7")


  • Runs on Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread right out of the box, which is a pleasant surprise, given that advertisements still indicate Froyo


  • Swype - a soft keyboard that does not require lifting up your fingers to type
    • Difficulties
      • Visiting each key while sliding on the screen may save energy lifting your finger but friction on the smooth surface will cancel out whatever energy saved
      • The soft keyboard has to guess the word you typed, and frequently presents you a list of words if it could not guess what you typed
  • Samsung Keyboard - a typical soft keyboard
    • A 7" screen is a little too small for touch typing
    • Thumb typing is comfortable only in the portrait mode, unless you have long thumbs, in which case landscape mode may be comfortable for you
    • The Tab is a mite heavy to hold in one hand and typing with the other
