washington post ipad

This week, the Washington Post is the latest of the big, well known newspapers to add itself to the growing list of digital apps available on the iPad, alongside other well known names like the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Globe and Mail, The Times and more.

Samsung Galaxy Tab now available in UK, hits US Nov 10

Posted by Patrick Lambert Categories: Google, Handhelds

samsung glaxy tab

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is one of the most hyped Android tablets of the season, and it's almost here. The device sports a 7-inch display and runs Android 2.2. Samsung is claiming you'll get 7 hours of battery life out of the Galaxy Tab, which isn't bad at all.  Expect a front-facing camera, rear camera, and all the typical stuff you'd expect from Android (web, mail, Adobe Flash, 80,000 Android Marketplace apps.) While we've seen other Android based tablets come out this year, this is hailed as the first true iPad competitor.

The release date is this Monday, Nov 1st in the UK (that's today!), and it comes to North America later this month. Every major carrier will have it subsidized for around $400, with T-Mobile starting on Nov 10, following with Sprint on Nov 14 and then Verizon and US Cellular later on. Amazon also just added it to their listings for $699 without contract.

It's clear that this device is going to have a strong demand, it's the best tablet out there that isn't named "iPad," and with the holidays right around the corner, we're expecting this one to be a success for Samsung.

While you can't really argue against the fact that the iPad has been a massive success for Apple, even outselling Mac computers last quarter, we know there are a bunch of people who write it off as just a  fad and who don't really see anything special about the device. However, it's becoming increasingly obvious that Apple was on to something that goes way beyond the argument of a closed App Store and the simple OS that so many complain about.

In the video above, you'll meet a 7-year old boy named Owen Cain. Owen was born with a debilitating motor-neuron disease that has left him almost completely motionless throughout his life. Needless to say, communication for him has been difficult. Then, a nurse had him try to play with an iPad, and he was able to use and interact with the device immediately, on his own. Take a look at the video above for the
