It seems like tablets are the flavor of the month in the world of technology. I've resisted the siren call of the iPad (and still giggle at the name--I know, I know I am immature), but couldn't resist when Samsung offered to send me off to BlogHer in August with an new Galaxy Tablet.
Sleek and small, the tablet is a marriage of a smartphone and a notebook computer. It's got the functionality and speed I need to stay hyper-connected to my social network. The Galaxy allowed me to email, post to facebook and tweet with speed and ease.
At the Samsung information booth, I got to learn about the cool functions of the Galaxy--things I probably wouldn't have found on my own.
I used the Galaxy as an e-reader, camera, camcorder, laptop and notebook--all in the course of a few days.

The touch-screen never flustered me.
What really stood out was the picture quality. The Galaxy took excellent HD videos as well as sharp photos--though it does look a little awkward to hold something this large up for a quick snapshot.
What I loved:
High Definitions picture
Access to all my Droid apps
Watching videos--is so much more rewarding on the Galaxy
What I didn't:
Call me old-fashioned by I still love a key-board. I do a lot of writing and corresponding, and can't tap it all out as quickly with the touch pad.
No USB connection for fast sharing of photos--you've got to be connected to the Internet to share.
Propping up the tablet was a bit of a pain. I'd need to get an easel to make this more suitable for movie viewing.

Full Disclosure: We were given a Galaxy to use at BlogHer. No cash changed hands.
