Mike Norris from Gadgetsteria shares his thoughts on the Samsung Galaxy Tab and explains why he gives it an 8 rating.

In the current tablet market, the iPad 2 is still the undisputed king. Some participants such as the Motorola XOOM and older, smaller Samsung Galaxy Tab have certainly put up a fight thus far, but ultimately failed to claim any serious market share. Back for round two, however, is Samsung’s larger, more threatening 10.1″ Galaxy Tab. With more pixels and more potential than any Android tablet yet, can Samsung finally take a large enough bite out of the iPad 2′s market share? Jump past the break to find out…
