Samsung's global Galaxy Tab sales lag behind Apple iPad at 600K - Page 6

Who introduced it to consumers first in a commercially available product - apple.

It's been relatively bug free, while wp7 still needs a bit of work.

Just bc ms threw together a press conference doesn't mean anything except that smart people at two different companies came to the same conclusion.

One company - apple - came to that solution earlier.

A press conference is no replacement for a shipping product.

hahaha! You're so right! Thanks for showing me the truth, brother.

Well, one company had their product already available, while the other still had to physically get that product into the hands of people.

Which is easier/quicker? A software update, or the release of an entirely brand new mobile operating system on numerous devices?

At least you're willing to admit as much as "smart people at two different companies came to the same conclusion" which is a far cry from Microsoft copying Apple. That's progress

Seems to me one can make a statement out of thin air without providing evidence with the excuse of "being lazy" these days. Hmmm...

Which ones? The reviews I read gave the opposite impression; that WP7 was a great start for Microsoft's new platform...

I'm sure you can find reviews from people who didn't like it, but in all seriousness, this idea that it felt "slapped together" is definitely NOT the impression I got from the majority of reviewers.

Well, apple released the prototype of android and wp7 in 2007

When I read that wp7 is slow and buggy, missing a lot of features, 3rd party apps have problems, etc. that indicates to me that ms pushed it out the door a little soon.

Even more telling that hp didn't buy into it.

Again, this isn't what I read, so I can't exactly comment on it. Gizmodo, for instance, said a LOT of good things about it. If people found bad things, it wouldn't surprise me (being just released and all.)

The first iphone had issues at release, and we all know those things were sorted out.

Microsoft has yet to allow 3rd party multitasking in wp7 - so their methods at this point are smoke and mirrors - which is typical for Microsoft.

this is an apple related site. so at best you could hope for a 'MS made wp7 suck less than windows mobile 6'. just like they made win 7 sucks less than Vista. good for them!

I'm not sure whether aliens had a hand in building google but I'm he'll sure they did with the pyramid. Look it up. I'm being lazy.

The reviews for webos were stellar too...

Good for you. Also, WebOS is stellar. It's failures are the result of poor decisions by palm. I expect HP to do good things with it.

It doesn't prove or disprove anything - I was compared the first month of iPad sales - excluding channel partners - 1 million - versus samsungs ambiguous 600k number.

That's the number I was referring to.

Webos had potential - but iOS is realizing it's potential - webos was sluggish and buggy and couldn't multitask well with 256 Meg. Of ram.

What apple's done on the iPad with iOS 4.2 is phenomenal.

Webos failed because palm released it too early, ran it on Mickey mouse hardware, and had sprint as their primary service provider. Webos runs better on 512 Meg. of ram, but hp needs to go to higher resolution screens, faster cpu's, etc.

I think webos in a good tablet form factor could be extremely compelling.

You can not buy a Galaxy unless you go with a network vendor. There is no wifi only version and based on the latest news there will be no wifi only version.

That's a big mistake on samsung's part.

the 'frantic fanboys' should start group for you called the 'pathetic losers'. oh wait, you are a founding father of that group...

Yeah and clearly you can't help but come up here and defend the OS you love so much. Clearly the frantic fandriods can't restrain themselves too.

That Galaxy Tab sure is one hell of a device. Can't wait to see 3.0 on it.

Thanks for opening my eyes as to how awesome this tablet is. I'm jealous of those 600,000 NORMAL INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE NO MORE OR LESS INTELLIGENT THAN ANYONE ELSE HERE.

Good God, dimwit.

Obviously you haven't read some of the reviews - that indicate the galaxy tab is slow as shit.

2.2 isn't optimized and it shows!

The larger question, however, is that, given these awesome and clearly preferable user experience of these various devices, to what end do people such as DaHarder (or you, much of the time) waste your time posting here?

What kind of fucked up mental illness is it, exactly that drives the need to constantly refute "fan boys", instead of seeking out the company of people using the equipment you prefer and talking about that?

LOL, you're forgetting that he supposedly buys every single Apple product only to then buy a competitors product and realize how crappy the Apple product was. You would think that he would give up on Apple altogether by now and just buy the perfect other product.

Not at all what I've read, and seeing as how I own a Fascinate still running 2.1, I believe them when they say how quick it is.

I will say the Fascinate used a bad file system not native to linux, but a fix for this was literally as easy as plugging in the usb, and running a file.

So if people are complaining about things like applications list taking a second or two to load, they very well could be talking about Samsung's poor choice for the file system (unless they changed it for the tab.)

Updates for the galaxy S phone apparently deal with this issue, but since I rooted and removed bloatware, I can't apply the update without risking some bad stuff happening (much like someone jumping through hoops to update a jailbroken iphone.)

If the galaxy tab is as fast as my fascinate, then it's definitely a far cry from "slow as shit."

I'm going to bed.

There is no 'perfect' product, but I do endeavor to buy/use any/everything that suits my needs/desires at the time... when it's all said and done, that's entirely my right, and none of it (or anything else I do) is remotely any of your business one way or another.

Maybe you should make a greater effort to lay off the personal attacks/matters and stick to the topic at hand.

Then again it could be that envy/jealously of those who do have the ability to acquire what they want/when they want has made such rational behavior impossible.

Either way, I really don't care what you (or any of these other fanatics) think of me or what I have or do.

Have A Nice Day.

When compacted ignoreds occupy as much space as the regular commenters, it's time to give this forum a rest. You reasonable and enthusiastic folks, keep up the good work - and try to leave some of these less reasonable folk simply echoing in the User CP hallways without response.

Briefly back on topic: It is a fact that Samsung reports solely into the channel not retails end purchaser sales. And while Apple did blend in the Best Buy channel supplies - they were only a small percentage of the total number sold to customers by Apple.

So now, I bid you all adieu, may your holidays be as pleasant as you wish them to be.
