Its 4000 mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 13 hours of battery life, and up to 500 hours (20+ days) of standby time.

High-speed AT&T 3G Mobile Broadband Network The dual-band 850/1900 MHz 3G network makes it possible to enjoy a variety of feature-rich wireless multimedia services, and gives you the advantage of offering simultaneous voice and data services.
In areas where the 3G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 U.S. cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways. It's fast enough to support a wide range of advanced data services, including full picture and video messaging, high-speed color Internet access, and e-mail on the go.
Easy Pay-As-You-Go Data Plan Options
AT&T offers two pay-as-you-go data plan options for the Galaxy Tab--a $14.99 plan for 30 days with up to 250 MB of usage and a $25 plan for 30 days with up to 2 GB of usage. If you use all the data included in your plan before 30 days, you can purchase another pay-as-you go plan. The data plans do not require a long-term contract.
As a courtesy reminder, AT&T will notify you when the 30-day plan is close to expiring or when you are close to depleting the amount of data available in the plan. For additional convenience, these plans can automatically renew every 30 days (when paid for using a credit card or debit card).
You'll also enjoy easy on-device wireless activation and account management. Tapping "Activate" on the AT&T Account Manager begins the quick wireless service activation process. Tapping "Buy More Credit" on the AT&T Account Manager on device (with active wireless service) allows for quick access to view remaining data/time, purchase more data, add a device, or edit information about your account.
An alternative to the Android virtual keyboard, the Swype virtual keyboard allows you to input text by swiping the finger with one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard. Based on testing, speed and accuracy are equal to or better than the traditional keyboard-tapping method. You can activate the Swype keyboard by pressing and holding in a text field, waiting for popup to appear, clicking Input Method, and then selecting Swype.
A key advantage to Swype is that by roughly aiming to pass through the letters of the word there is no need to be very accurate, enabling rapid text entry.

Battery Life: Personally, this has to be on my top 2 priorities. I own several toys/gadgets, great as some may be, once the battery goes out, I'm sorely disappointed. Hate the several hours of wait time for them to charge back up. So they either get very little use or go back in the original package and into the closet. Now this Galaxy Tab I've been using heavily over the past 3 days, during last week's long X'mas holiday, and it still has about 10% charge left in it. This said, it only took about 3.5 hours to re-charge and power it back up to 100%. Excellent.
Portability: Perfect size, perfect screen size for yours truly. I can finally and easily now see a lot of things as compared to my tiny smartphone screen. Fits tightly in my jeans back pocket, but fits nicely in my cargo pants pockets. I now carry it or have it nearby for use all over the house. Also, a quality built, solid product in my humble opinion.
Display: Awesome, just beautiful, 1024X600 pixel res. Turn on any of the live wallpaper screens and its better and/or comparable to my home LED and Plasma TV displays.
Touchscreen: Outstanding. I'm a desktop, mouse-kinda-guy, but am now a touchscreen newbie convert. Go ahead and try this touch pad Tab out at BestBuy or any one of the phone carrier's stores.
Internet: Super fast WiFi surfing. I'm benchmarking this in comparison to my HP 14 inch, 4 GB RAM, dual core, laptop. Excellent on AT&T's basic speed, lightning fast on Cox cable and AT&T's higher U-verse setup. Google search also works on voice command. Haven't had a need to switch to an alternative browser such as Dolphin since the basic browser works just fine for my purposes.Read more ›
I have had this AT&T GT for 4 days now and it is a keeper for me, I would have given it 5 stars but read on. I have had a few Droid phones and currently use a Droid2, I also have a 7" rebranded Haipad 701 running 2.2.1 so I have a fair amount of Droid experience. Right out of the box this unit runs very solid and smooth, the capacitive touch screen is so easy to use in comparison to the 701's resistive screen. That is what I hoped for; flicking, scrolling, tapping, choosing accurately etc is a big frustration on the 701 but very nice on the GT. WiFi works great, I was on line within minutes of opening the box. There are many apps that you can install to make your GT suit your use/lifestyle, great versatility.
Obviously I really like this GT but that does not mean it is perfect, therefore the 4 stars. It has some Samsung issues and AT&T has done their best to cripple it to their advantage which is a shame, but all the vendors cripple their GT's (like they do their phones) just in different ways.
1st Issue: The included Browser is really clunky and just plain bad. If you run Flash on it, the Browser slows way down and scrolling pages is jerky and....L.S.S.: just download Dolphin Browser from the Market, problem solved. 2nd: AT&T has it set up to stop all app loading unless the apps are from the Market-there are ways around it though (Google to get help). 3rd: Euro carriers allow it to be a phone in Europe but this has been crippled in the States, I don't want this feature myself but there are ways to get that functionality (Google it). 4th: US carriers have, naturally, cut off the ability to wireless tether it to a rooted phone running the "Wireless Tether" app, there are ways...(Google it).Read more ›
I received the Samsung Galaxy Tab as an early Christmas present. This device is hands down brilliant! I absolutely love it. It has a great, big, bright screen. Surfing the web, reading books, watch HD videos, it excels at all of these tasks and more. The battery hold a good charge and lasts for hours. The software is very stable and quite responsive. The tablet also works perfectly with my Microsoft Bluetooth keyboard. There are a few things about the tablet that are kind of annoying:
1. AT&T as always has put a bunch of bloatware applications on the tablet that I haven't been able to remove. I have not rooted the device yet, and I'm sure once I do I will be able to remove the applications, but the point is I shouldn't have to root it to get the crap off it. Update, I was able to Easily root this device with Z4root (from the market), and I was able to rid out all the AT&T apps that I didn't want.
2. There is a front mount camera, but there are no applications that allow for tablet to PC video calls.
All in all I do think it is a great Android tablet and I definitely recommend it.
I have been using this for 6 weeks and I am pretty new to Andriod. I have been using apple products for years and the experience has been pretty good so far on Andriod, Its is the best Andriod tablet as of today (1/18/2011) and it will not be dethrone in Feb by Dell streak 7 (dual core CPU) due to the lousy low resolution screen.
Light 4th lightest 7" tablet in the market today (1st Archos 70, 2nd Archos 7 home tablet, 3rd viewsonic viewpad 7). The tab weigh 380grams which is still pretty light.
Screen (The most important) This is the highest resolution money can buy right now for any 7" tablet 1024x600. With the tab you will hardly see the dot pixel with naked eye. I wish they would go as high as iphone's retina dislay @ 326 DPI (dot pixel not visible at all). The text is the same size as Ipad (use firefox bigger text plugins). In comparison, the text in Ipad looks blurry. I would go with the Archos if not for the screen low resolution of 800x600 (but lots of people call it high resolution which puzzle me including Archos themselves). At this 800x600, its 143DPI which is in between Ipad and galaxy tab. Dot pixel is pretty visible on half's an arm's length & viewing angle is limited, you can't share a movie with someone beside you.. screen color distorted at this angle (Deal breaker). The IPAD and galaxy tab has super wide viewing angle with no distortion.
Size: Lying down in bed with the tab on your chest feels very natural. The size is just right @ typical viewing distant of 12", On couch, it feels as natural as reading a hard cover book. with a 169DPI, it feels like reading a book (Dot pixel hardly visible). IPAD is too heavy plus dot pixel too big. See apps for reading..
