A certain shop is selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab for £299 and it's a 3G version. I'm just wondering if this is worth it or should I wait for the next gen of tablets to come out?

I've been thinking about buying an internet tablet for a while now and was almost about to buy an Advent Vega for £200 but then the Galaxy Tab dropped to £299, it is £99 more than the Vega but is a much better quality tablet and has a better screen but I'm worried that the 7 inch screen might not be big enough to watch films & tv shows on the go (on trains, cars and just general video viewing).

So does anyone have any experience with watching films on the Galaxy?

Also, with the Advent Vega there are unofficial mods to improve performance and unlock it's capability, is it the same situation with the Galaxy? Would I be able to connect USB devices such as phones/external drives/keyboards/webcams/mice?

And is the single core processor fast enough to watch HD video's and multitask properly without hindering the performance?

Thanks

Its O2 and the stock is really low. Good luck if you can find one. this is a geniune bargain. They wont replenish the stock when its gone. The marketing dept dont know the 299 offer elsewhere is WiFi only and until they realise, this is a steal. grab it and growl.... grrrr.....

These are sold out online but available in some shops. I bought one today in Wilmslow. A bargain!

I managed to get one from CPW. Only slight annoyance is that it's advertised as having a free upgrade to 32GB. I wrongly assumed that meant a 32gb card was included, but it's not, it's an additional 16gb card, which isn't quite the same, unless theres a way to use both at once. I've not opened the box yet and had a play so I might be missing something obvious.

Hi

I got one as well £249 for the P1000 3g version in the CPW Clearance, sim free
Like it a lot
Managed to get the "free" stuff worth £200 downloaded loads of free movies, games and books
As its unlocked can use as a wireless access point for up to five devices
Easy to carry around with a decent screen size
If only it had Honeycomb !

By that do you mean 'previous' to the 'end of promotion' date? I purchased a Tab from CPW on Thursday (cracking price for a 3G Tab with an extra 16Gb card thrown in). I have registered my Tab on the promotion site and I put in the the actual date of purchase and still received the voucher codes with half an hour.... apart from the Movie codes. The email states that the Movie codes will follow separately though.

tab has 16BG INTERNAL, with space for an EXTERNAL sdcard. next to the simcard slot there is another slot to insert the 'additional' 16GB sdcard.

Oh, well that makes sense then. I'd assumes the Tab was similar to most other Android phones and just had the one micro sd card slot and no useful amount of internal RAM.
