They are here! I must say, these tablets look really nice (in the photos and in specs.) If they perform as well as they sound, I bet they could give the iPad 2 a run for it’s money. In addition to being slightly thinner and lighter than the iPad 2, both Samsung devices also have higher resolution (1280×800 vs. 1024×768); microSD ports for storage expansion (iPad has no ability for expansion); and, the Samsung devices are relatively cheaper than the iPad 2. (Oh yeah, and these devices support Flash.) Still, all this won’t make a difference if they don’t perform well. I was not wild about the previous Samsung Galaxy – it was a little sluggish and the size was odd: not quite big enough to be a “tablet”, but too big to be a cell phone :-)

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
