    Android Tablet apps

    I just purchased the Galaxy 10.1. Before you Apple fanboys rag on me, realize I have a droid phone so it just made more sense to me. I love the thing but I was wondering what apps to get.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Android Tablet apps

    Bump!

    Just got around to checking my Visa card's reward points and determined that I can get a Galaxy 10.1 tablet gratis. Thinking about pulling the trigger one it. Those who have tablets, are you loving them/hating them/meh-ing them?

    I have the 10.1 Galaxy as well, I don't use it has much as I would like, but I love it. You can get an HDMI output as well.

    Re: Android Tablet apps

    How about size? The version available from my CC company is only 16 gig. I have the option of taking monetary gift certificates that I could turn around and use to buy the 32 gig.

    I would take the certificates and buy the 32G one. I don't know how your rewards program works, but there may not be an option for you to get an extended or "accidental" warranty added to it. If you buy one from a normal retailer, I would think these would be available. Just a thought.

    Re: Android Tablet apps

    I have the 10.1 as well, and also feel like I'm under utilizing it right now. It's used mostly as a social tool (Internet, videos, photos), so I'm not really using a lot right now for apps.

    So I'm kind of curious to hear what others are using as well. I really like the tablet, but do think I could get more out of it...

    What do you need to store? Music? Video? Pictures?

    I use Google Music for my music, only takes up 5 mb of space with 1400 songs :)

    Re: Android Tablet apps

    If you want apps, return it tomorrow and get an iPad. It really doesn't make sense to take a chance on a android tablet regardless of what phone you have.
