Its a matter of preference... you're comparing a 10" tab to a 7" tab. For me, I'm glad I didn't wait for the SGT2 as I didn't want a tab that big. For me 7" is a perfect size. I'm also within my 30 days, if they announced the SGT2 at the same size of 7".... I would be on line right now returning the thing.

I got my Tab recently on U.S. Cellular and I love all 7" of it. I also find that the 10" will probably be too big for me. I don't think it will get outdated until they bring another 7" tablet to the table. I think that's why they called it the Galaxy Tab 10.1" and not Tab 2.

I was torn as well on sticking with the tab. My plan is to keep it for a bit. I got the buyback from Best Buy free with it. I will keep it for at least 6 months and by then there should be some great products for it, the OS will be better optimized, and there will be better apps.

I just got mine last night. So far I really like it. I was holding out for a Xoom but decided its just too big to take with me as much as I would like. This fits nicely in my smallish girly hands lol.Melissa

We picked up 2 (buy 1 get 1) on U.S. Cellular. We love them! We also think that the 10.1" will be too big. We already have a 10.1" netbook and 17.3" laptop. 7" is perfect for a tablet. The Tab fits very nicely in my hands.
I've been looking for good applications, launchers, and themes. I'm trying to customize it to make it mine :P
I really do think Samsung will keep both around. Having both 7" and 10.1" will work in their advantage for those that don't want a larger sized tablet. I know over valentines day Galaxy Tabs were sold out on USC.

The size is a huge perk for this device...Especially for those people who are looking to combine devices with this (GPS, Kindle, web browsing, etc.). You obviously want it to be comfortable to use on a daily basis, and for myself personally anything like the iPad or Xoom is just way to big. Nice, light, and portable. The 7" tabs are doing something right

I've had my Tab for a week and love it. Using LauncherProPlus and it's perfect. Ill be jazzed if we get Honeycomb whether its official or developed on xda but I'm content with how this works now.
