Samsung's iPad competitor runs Google's Android smart phone software, sports front and rear-facing cameras, and plays Flash video from the Web. Steve Jobs himself criticized 7-inch tablets, calling them "too small" and "DOA, Dead on Arrival."
Critics are also raising concerns over the Tab's price tag, which varies slightly by carrier. T-Mobile, for example, offers the device for $399 with a two-year contract, $599 without.
