This book is for people who want to get the most from the latest in tablet technology. There is a compelling draw to such technology, and an obvious popularity. Being new as both a product and a technology, the Galaxy Tab needs some careful explaining. The Apple iPad created and defined the tablet communications category of intelligent devices. It's not a computer, and it's more than a smartphone. The Galaxy Tab takes the iPad concept one step further. Beyond the basics of tablet computing offered by the iPad - Web, Email, eReader, Navigation, Music, Video, Camera (golly, there are a lot of them) - the Galaxy Tab offers phone communications plus video chat and conferencing. That, coupled with the increasing popularity of the Android operating system and aggressive pricing, makes it a formidable contender to the iPad.This book documents the features of the Galaxy Tab, approaching them from the point of view of a smart person who is intimidated by the technology and baffled by the scant documentation and online support. All topics for the Galaxy Tab will be covered. As usual, humor is generously sprinkled through the text. It provides relief, but never gets in the way of important stuff. The reader will end up keeping this book close, referring to it often as they explore the features of their Samsung Galaxy Tab.The book covers: Configuration and Setup Find Your Way Around the Galaxy Galaxy Tab Interface Basics Good Ol' Phone Calls Video Conferencing Texting Your Thoughts All Your Friends in the Galaxy Wireless Networking Tablet Web Browsing Behold the Social Hub Desktop Synchronization Getting from Here to There The Digital Library Smile for the Camera Your Music Hub More Apps at Android Market Taking Your Tab With You Customize Your Tab Maintenance & Upgrading
