Samsung recently announced the new tablet computer named GALAXY Tab, as Apple iPad competitor. Samsung Galaxy Tab has an iPad-like design with 7-inch display, which is smaller than iPad 9.7-inch display. However, the Galaxy Tab includes a rear camera with 3.2 megapixels and rear camera with 1.3 megapixels for video chatting and video calling.
It would be a great choice for watching videos on Samsung Galaxy Tab. Let's have a look at the comparison chart below for the specifications of Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Even though Apple announced iOS4 with multitasking for iPhone 4, and then for iPod Touch for multitasking, the update for iPad from iOS3 to iOS4 is not released yet. Samsung Galaxy Tab with Android 2.2 supports multitasking, allowing you to run multiple programs on the tablet device at the same time.
You can also take Samsung Galaxy Tab as a smartphone to make a call with speakerphone or Bluetooth. The video calling with Galaxy Tab is somewhat like iPhone 4 with rear-facing and front-facing cameras. The officially advertised video playback time for Galaxy Tab is up to 7 hours and 10 hours for iPad, which are good for enjoying videos on a trip.
From the media support, it could be clear that Galaxy Tab supports more video and audio formats than iPad. iPad supports .mp4, .m4v and .mov with H.264 and MPEG-4 codec, and .avi with M-JPEG compression. According to the Galaxy Tab specifications, it may play videos in formats like .wmv, H.264 .flv and .mp4, H.263 .flv, as well as DiVX .avi.
The supported formats are limited for both Galaxy Tab and iPad. If you want to play more movies and music on Galaxy Tab or iPad, you may use the video converter for Galaxy Tab on Windows or video converter for iPad on Mac, which could help you transcode TiVo, MKV, MTS/M2TS, TS, VOB to MP4 for Galaxy Tab and iPad.
