"The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the best tablet whose name doesnt begin with the letter "i,'" said Globe technology reporter Hiawatha Bray. He went on to write this larger, thinner version of the seven-inch tablet Samsung rushed to market last year is superior to the original in every way. Indeed, if it had come quicker to the market, Samsung might now be neck and neck with Apple in tablet sales, Bray wrote.
