On the last day of MWC I just had one more task to do and that was to spend as much time as possible with the10.1. Contacts at MWC had already told me that it was good so I headed over to Samsung with time to spare.
Yes, theis a quality bit of industrial design. The back feels slightly disappointing if youâ€™re looking for appeasing materials but itâ€™s practical and I’m sure that itâ€™s going to be of long-lasting quality. The camera is good â€“ not awesome, but good enough. The speakers disappoint. The other part of the product that disappoints, and you might hear this from other reporters is that the UI was a bit underwhelming. Beware, this is incomplete software so we should’nt use it as any sort of indicator. In its current state itâ€™s worse than that Galaxy Tab so I feel certain it canâ€™t go out of the door like that. It was missing Market, some BT features and the browser had a lot of trouble with Google Mail and iGoogle.
In a Sunspider test I managed to get some idea of how Honeycomb and Tegra 2 are going to perform together. The score you see below is 4x better than theand a lot better than results I have from Android 2.1 on Tegra2. A 7â€ Galaxy Tab returns about 7000 ms
Yes thatâ€™s 2256. Over 2x faster than the Galaxy Tab 7â€-er!
Hereâ€™s my hands-on video. Iâ€™ll be happy to answer questions below.
