Samsung Galaxy Tab

The first wave of tablets following in the iPad's footsteps are (almost) here. Powered by the Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS, the Samsung Galaxy Tab ($TBA) sports a 7-inch TFT-LCD display (1024 x 600), front (1.3 MP) and rear (3 MP) cameras, full HD video playback (DivX, XviD, MPEG4, H.263, H.264), and comes in 16GB and 32GB models. It's also got built-in 3G HSPA connectivity, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0. It will be launching in Europe later this month and in the U.S. in the "coming months."

  • Sony Reader Daily Edition

    If you're in the market for a wireless e-book reader, Amazon's Kindle is no longer the only game in town. The Sony Reader Daily Edition ($400; December 2009) packs built-in, service charge-free AT&T 3G networking for downloading new books on the go, and also offers a seven-inch touch-capable E-Ink screen with 16 levels of grayscale for crisp text and images, and native support for PDF, JPEG, BBeB Book, RTF, and TXT files.

  • Amazon Kindle DX

    Amazon is going the bigger is better route with the Kindle DX ($489). With a 9.7-inch paper-like e-ink screen (2.5x bigger than the standard Kindle), and measuring just over 1/3 of an inch thin (like a magazine), the new DX is definitely tall and slim. The new Kindle DX also gets auto-rotation (read in portrait or landscape mode), better image and photo display, native PDF support, 4GB of storage (good for up to 3,500 books), wireless 3G access, and a handy text-to-speech feature.
