Testing the ol’ tablet

About a month ago I finally decided to join the tablet club.

I had a look at a couple of models and finally decided on the Samsung galaxy tab 8.9. There are several reasons for this but I won’t bore you with the details of my research.

I opted for an Android powered device because I am really fond of the operating system. I have even gone as far as buying my first Android Apps powered application. The application in question is PrinterShare. A must for any serious android user. I used the free version of the app for about a week and after some thought I decided to purchase the full version. The price was R100 which totally worked for my pocket.

The main reason I got the tablet was so that I can have a light, powerful, QWERTY device that I can modify to my hearts content. Obviously after unpacking it I had to see if I could get Icecream Sandwich working on it because the Samsung comes with Honeycomb by default. After a little playing I got it up and running on my tablet. Man oh man, Icecream Sandwich really looks sexy on this little bitch. Unfortunately, it was a little on the unstable side so I opted back for Honeycomb. I cannot wait for them to sort the teething problems out so that Samsung can release an official release.

Oh, it seems that I have to cut this post short as my godkids are finally done with their homework and their uncle has promised them a swim in his pool.

Which reminds me, another reason for the tablet is total internet freedom.

Well, they just jumped in and I gotta join. To be continued…
