Samsung Galaxy Tab® 2 (7.0) - A Mini iPad

This is a guest post from Keith Taylor, sports editor for The Winchester Sun in Kentucky.

My three-year old niece, Addisyn, picked up my Samsung Galaxy Tab® 2 (7.0) and called it a mini iPad. And there you have it, straight from the mouth of a child!

I never thought about it in her terms, but she is correct. It's a cross between an iPad and an iPhone. That's why I love the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 from Verizon Wireless. I have had the Galaxy Tab in my hands for about a month and love the style and convenience of having a tablet that can slide right into my pocket and provide a valuable resource when it comes to my job.

When I'm out covering games, whether it's George Rogers Clark High School or the University of Kentucky Wildcats, I have the tablet as part of the tools I need to complete the job.

I love the simplicity of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and its handy seven inch screen, not to mention the mobile hotspot. The mobile hotspot is a must when it comes to covering high school games. I can log into my VPN client at the office and send my story to the news desk as if I were right there in my office. The option has allowed me to complete several work tasks at home and also allows me to have whatever tools I need (e-mail, websites and even social media sites) at hand.

The camera is really useful, and the keypad is almost perfect when it comes to typing. It's kind of like a mini iPad, only more convenient and requires less space.
