Another channel to discuss the Galaxy Tab

As the current Wordpress Android app is better than the Blogger app (I should write about this), my ongoing comments on my newly acquired Galaxy Tab will be posted in the blog below.

Galaxy Tab - First baptism of fire

First serious day of actual use, quite a few issues.

Large screen size is great, but a little slippery to hold. 2 handed grip is more comfortable, but typing on landscape keyboard is a stretch for thumbs.

A simple operation of copying text from a PDF to an Excel file turned out to be a stern test for the device.

Thinkfree Office, which came free with the Galaxy Tab, didn't support text selection in it's PDF reader.

Downloaded Adobe Reader from Android Market, but that also didn't allow copying of text inside a PDF. Eventually resolved it by downloading the paid version of Documents To Go.

But the device hung and I had to restart it. Not a great start.

Welcome to Galaxy Tab

Finally bit the bullet and bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Still getting the hang of typing on the touchscreen.
