Default Samsung Galaxy Tab vs OlivePad VT100

Just Bumped into the comparison please help me evaluate



http://www.olivetelecom.in/laptop/ol...ech-specs.html
Price Rs. 25,990/-



http://www.pcworld.com/zoom?id=204779&page=1&zoomIdx=1
Price approx Rs. 38,000/-


Is it worth the extra buck ?

Cheers

Interesting...!!! I was about to search/ask for android based tablets myself.

My requirements:

- Should not be as slow as the 'netbooks'
- Allow USB (in iPad this is a deal breaker for me)
- Make phone calls
- GPS and allied services
- 3G
- WiFi


What are the choices in the Indian market.


NOTE: The olive pad is coming in with lots of freebee's

Considering the Speed of updates coming to Android OS, better buy a unit having a processor of 1Ghz or higher.

i too was about to search on this. Does the DELL STREAK fit your requirement? I saw an advert on that in TOI a few days but i have been travelling ever since. I am planning to go check it out at the DELL store upon returning back. To me DELL makes more sense as i think its more compact and easy to carry.

and the very next posting says that it was faking specifications in case of aPad, so IMHO that should have been the reason for De-listing.

Moreover, I like to believe Olive is decent enough company.

There must some ignorance on the part of Sangeeta dealer (or I need to know something). I saw a new sealed box being brought in and the salesman said its 28K ! I was shocked. I showed him the MRP sticker of 38K, but still he was not changing his view. He said 28K!

Galaxy Tab - Has almost all features 3g, Gps, Geo tagging, Ebook reader etc - 38k pricy

Dell Streak - 5" Screen, and All other features as above. - 35k
Dell is more logical for daily use as phone + internet browsing device.
Need to evaluate the quality of Phone, after sales service etc

I'm still waiting for a decent 10" Android tablet with high-res screen. It seems like majority of the tablets are coming in 7" form factor.

It is better to wait for the Ginger Bread to be released before going for a tablet. Froyo is not made for tablets and there are issues reported. Ginger Bread is expected to be released this month (Starting with the Nexus One . I own one).

Yeah, it can be perfect device, they are giving free life time MapMyIndia subscription with it as well.

In 13,000 extra for Galaxy tab, one will get:
1.) Better resolution
2.) More disk
3.) More CPU
4.) HDMI output (will have to buy cable).

What else?
