What CAN'T your Tab do?
So I would like to get a thread going to list off the shortcomings.
- Keyboard won't work with Sprint/Verizon Tab.
- AT&T has no hotspot feature out of the box.
- No Skype over 3G?
Anything you guys can think of let me know.
I am still torn on getting a Sprint one, just concerned of the shortcomings.

Get the ATT version then you can root it and flash it with the latest European ROM and it will be fully unlocked. The Euro ROM is really fast and will eliminate all lags and allow you to use your tab as a phone if you so desire.

The tab is so ridiculous slippery I can't place it up right to watch video easily.
Also Ihaven't found a good youtube downloader, I want something that can queue download and can name the files correctly.
I probably will return the tab due to these issues.

Also they make coasters for the tab that will stand it up like a kickstand... not as great as flipping open a kickstand from the back of the device but its an option.
As for your YouTube problem... I'm sure there's some kind of app that will do what you're looking for.
I'm still thinking of things "my tab can't do"... I guess install custom roms or overclock it but I'm cool with the way it is..... so I'll go with the previous poster and say.... it can't cook me breakfast.

it doesn't seem to be able to sync with EAS. this may be a deal-breaker for me.
there's a workaround for viewing movies on it: just get either an Arkon stand ($14.99) or a sturdy business card holder ($5.99) - works fine ;o)

Has anyone come to a final conclusion on which carrier's version is best?
Less bloat ware?
Memory can be added, so I don't care about that.
I like the option for hotspot from Sprint, but I hear At&t's tab is fastest.

My only complaint besides the fact that it's not running, or will ever get an official Honeycomb release (which would be fixed with an official HC release) is that I can't video chat via GTalk/chat. If I could video chat with my 3 year old daughter while walking around, I could see her MUCH more often...
As far as a Honeycomb port, this is the most thorough dev attempt I've seen yet:
Porting honeycomb to the Galaxy Tab *update 3/17/11* - xda-developers
Cases: I use the SCOSCHE foldIO GT1, and absolutely LOVE IT! Doesn't add too much size, and has adjustable "stand" options. It really is perfect (for me, at least).

IP: that is a gorgeous leather case for the Gal-Tab!!! Wish it came in a couple of colour choices, however.
I have a Belkin clear case for my tab; had it on within 24 hours of receiving my tablet. I'm delighted with the protection it gives and it solves the slippery issue that is often talked about. It was less than $20.00.

I'm registered on both sides of this site: Apple and Android. Seems as if it's two different worlds and an Apple fan is never going to be happy with an Android product. At least, that's my experience, with reading threads over there.
