Tuesday morning Google handed out Limited Edition Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android tablets to all attendees of their I/O Developers Conference – including non-devs like me with Press badges. By Wednesday at lunch, half the people at I/O were walking around with Tabs in hand, using them to do everything from figure out which session to attend next (the official show app was pretty good) to tweet, blog and email about the day’s happenings.
Today it’s Thursday and I’ve had the Tab for about 48 hours. One of those hours was wasted fiddling with Tab’s charger, trying to get it to actually do something for the tablet’s depleted battery. Once that was fixed (jiggle … jiggle … jiggle … power!) I was able to do things like install Music Beta, surf the InterWebz, and make a video summing up my thoughts thus far on Sammy’s new Honeycomb slate. In a word? Tab 10.1 is so thin and light as to make me entirely reconsider my stance that 10″ tablets are too big. This thing I can use one-handed with little to no fatigue. In 1,000 words? Well, for that you’ll have to watch the video.
