This is a great step-by-step handbook for the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Very useful for reference so you can get the most of out of your tablet and maybe discover how to use some new features you didn't know about.

Easy to follow instruction, and really nice color graphics that make it that much easier to follow what the book is laying out.

I had a Galaxy Tab and I can confirm this book is a great addition if you have or are looking to get the Galaxy Tab. It is essentially the instruction manual that should have came pre-loaded on the device as an e-Book if not as a paper book in the box. It does a great job explaining the features of the Tab and walking you through basic operations along with a lot of high quality color pictures. For anyone new to the Galaxy Tab world this would be beneficial, if you've had other tablets of the android variety you could probably skip on this.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Samsung's line of tablet computers Galaxy Tab is probably the best known and the widest used line of "true" Android tablets. (Amazon's Kindle Fire line uses a heavily modified version of Android.) These are very versatile and well designed tablets that can serve a multiplicity of your everyday needs - listening to music, accessing online videos, checking and composing e-mail, creating various forms of original content. In order to get the most out of your Galaxy Tab, a detailed book of instructions can really come in handy.

"My Samsung Galaxy Tab" covers two different versions of this device: Galaxy Tab 7.0 and galaxy Tab 10.1. The first one of these runs the 2.2 version of Android called Froyo, while the 10.1 Galaxy Tab runs the version 3.1 called Honeycomb. There are many essential similarities between the two versions, but whenever there are the differences between the two this book will clearly spell those out.

This is one of the more comprehensive user guidebooks for any tablet computer that I have come across. At almost 500 pages it covers almost all of the essential topics and tasks that you would come across in your daily use. The chapters covered include "Becoming Familiar with Android," "Browsing the Web," "Playing Music and Videos," "Enhancing Galaxy Tab with Apps," and several others. Many of these topics are very intuitive, but there are certain subtleties that will help even the more experienced users.

All chapters and sections are organized around step-by-step instructions that give you detailed exposition. Most of the tasks are also illustrated with color screenshots, and this really helps with the whole experience. The book is very well designed and it is really fun to go through.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book provides essential documentation for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 (old model) and 10.1. Butow and Watson each have a long history of writing how-to computer books. In this book, they introduce two Galaxy Tab models to new users, providing documentation that should have been shipped in the box but wasn't. Topics covered include the physical layout of the devices, Android (operating system) basics, customizing the screen, browsing the web, e-mail and messaging, calendar and contacts, music and video, book reading, capturing and managing photos, maps and navigation, adding new apps, adding new hardware and accessories, and troubleshooting. Since the older model Galaxy Tab 7 used a different version of the Android operating system than the 10.1, separate instructions are given for each of the two models. The numbered instructions are illustrated with color screen captures, notated with circled numbers to help you match up instructions with icons on the screen. Where necessary, additional information is provided in large call-out boxes. The book includes an index to help you find topics easily, and a password for access to an online copy of the book for 45 days starting from activation of the password.

Being completely new to the Android world, I learned a lot from reading this book. We don't have any cell phone coverage where I live, so the world of smart phones is completely foreign to me, and the iPad is out of my price range. As a result, when I got my Samsung Galaxy Tab, I was at a complete loss about how to use it. The Tab ships with practically no documentation, simply a wallet-sized fold-out brochure with a few getting started tips.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am so not a tech person. When I was in the market for a tablet I spent weeks researching, trying to figure which one would be best for me. I have mostly been an Apple girl but after messing with the Ipads some family members had, I decided I wanted something different and maybe a bit superior. So I went with the Galaxy 2.

I thought it would be a fairly easy operation to figure out. I mean, I had no problems switching from a Microsoft OS laptop to a Mac. I got the Galaxy out of the box and I might as well have BEEN in a different Galaxy. I understood nothing.

So, thankfully, I was able to get the My Galaxy Tab 2 book from Amazon. Upon opening it immediately made me feel more secure and less anxious about learning the features of my new tablet.

The chapters are broken down via categories and then sub-categories. Knowing I could start at the very beginning of the book and tackle each chapter in my own time was reassuring but it was also great to know that if I had a specific issue I needed to figure out immediately all I had to do was skim the contents and find the exact page that information was offered.

I think this book offers help to new Galaxy Tab users as well as established ones. There were a few things I learned from the book that my friend didn't even know and he had his Tab for over a year.

I think it is a great tool to have if you own a Galaxy Tab. It certainly has saved me the time of having to search for the answer to a feature question from the internet.
