    Well, well, well... where to begin...

    Let me start by saying, this is a wonderful device. Thin. Light. Nice specs. LTE. Perfect screen size. In short, thats the gist of it... now let me elaborate!
    Honeycomb is a pleasant disaster. Ingenious UI elements. Yet, the whole thing is filled with bugs. I cannot even swipe from one home screen to the next without it freezing up or having all the widgets restart. Even when I close out of unused apps in the task manager and clear the RAM habitually, the tablet still lags and drags behind my finger. Now, I do not think that his is a hardware problem, after all, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, a gig of memory, and 16 GB's of storage, where can you go wrong? Well, you can.
    Software, One word where it all falls apart. Honeycomb is that pleasant disaster. Some parts great, exceptional, and even better then the iPad. But, others are pure crap. Rumors have it, that the AT&T Galaxy Tab 8.9 will be getting (at some point) ICS, which I sincerely hope does leaps and bounds over 3.2.
    Some other software tidbits worth noting is TouchWiz. I cannot not say I'm a fan but, I don't hate her. There are a few features that add to the stock experience. Yet, it adds to the bugs, at least in day to day usage. Compared to HTC Sense on a tablet (read: HTC Jetstream) it is magical.
    All-in-all, this tablet is worth it. If your on Big Blue, you need so serious speeds (where available), wannna pick up a free Samsung phone, and looking for a nice form factor, heres your chance.

    The 1.5GHz Snapdragon SoC in this chip makes a significant performance difference compared to the 1GHz Tegra 2 powered versions of the Tab 10.1 and 8.9. While not at Exynos levels, it's still a very strong chipset.

    This unit also supports just about any HSPA frequency on the planet..it works on T-Mobile DC HSPA+, Telus DC HSPA+, AT&T LTE, Bell/Telus/Rogers LTE, etc. The radio flexibility is why Samsung went with Qualcomm, and it wasn't a bad choice.

    For the modders, there is a root for the device already, and an overclock kernel that's stable up to 1.94GHz, and unlock codes are available if you want to use it on a different network.

    This is well worth picking up if you're looking for a "just right" sized tablet, and well worth trolling your local Craigslist for instead of buying the slower WiFi-only unit.
