Galaxy Tab voice call hack turns tablet back into a huge phone

Our review of T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy Tab went live yesterday, and while we bemoaned its lack of official voice call functionality, if you're willing to get your hands dirty in alternative ROMs then you can bypass that limitation. The xda-developers community has been working on enabling what the US Galaxy Tabs lost from their European counterparts, and - with a few limitations - has managed to activate voice calls on the T-Mobile Tab.

T-Mobile Samsung Tab Review

T-Mobile Samsung Tab Review

Samsung's Galaxy Tab is beginning its staggered rollout across the US carriers, and T-Mobile has been the first to make its play. We've already comprehensively reviewed the European version of the Galaxy Tab and Verizon Galaxy Tab, finding it an interesting - if expensive - alternative to the iPad; however, the North American models (and the T-Mobile version in particular) differ from what's on sale in Europe. Read on for our T-Mobile Galaxy Tab review.

The Daily Slash: November 12 2010

First of all, everyone who is a Windows Phone 7 developer: watch out. You're going to want to take a look at this. For everyone else, hooray, what a fun day!

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 12 2010

What huge news overnight! Oh my goodness there is a new phone, a new phone! It either has no name yet, or might be called Samsung Elite. Then there was a late night review by the man Ewdison T on a Gateway ID49C. Then, Facebook is going to crash down Gmail with their Microsoft Office Web Apps integrated "Project Titan!" Subway lets you pay futuristically with your cellphone, Galaxy Tab Flash is what's called an "Embarrassment of Riches," and the pricetag on the original Apple-1 (made by Steve Wozniak and distributed from Steve Jobs parents house) is expected to be around $161,000 to $242,000. Cheep!

Tegra 2 tablets will be “absolutely exquisite” promises NVIDIA CEO; Galaxy Tab just “a large phone”

Tegra 2 tablets will be “absolutely exquisite” promises NVIDIA CEO; Galaxy Tab just “a large phone”

NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has acknowledged the company's tardiness in entering the tablet market, saying that when it comes to taking on the iPad, "if you're going to give that wonderful product a run for its money, you better build something absolutely exquisite." Speaking during NVIDIA's Q3 2010 earnings call, Huang spent plenty of time talking up next-gen Android phones and tablets that are in the pipeline, directly referring to the iPhone and iPad as the prime competition.

Galaxy Tab Flash: an Embarrassment of Riches

Galaxy Tab Flash: an Embarrassment of Riches

With the first stages of the US launch this past week, and European model reviews in the weeks before, the Samsung Galaxy Tab's Flash performance has been well raked over. Flash support has taken center stage as one of the key differentiators between Apple's iPad and Android-based tablets, with Steve Jobs making no disguise of his dislike of the technology and several reviewers flagging up its spotty performance in their coverage of the new Samsung slate. It's enough for Silicon Alley Insider (without actually having used the Galaxy Tab) to describe Flash as "an embarrassing disaster" for Google slates. Problem is, it's a naive stance when an integral part of the Android proposition is flexibility.

The Wall Street Journal's app for Android-based tablets has hit the Android Market, and we've been testing it out on the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
