Samsung Galaxy Tab™ 2 10.1
Love it! Glad I did not go the iPad route
Was looking for a tablet of some sort for personal use. Not work as I build websites. Just fun and email convenience. Considered iPad. Glad I did not. I also have a Samsung Galaxy s3 Android phone and LOVE IT! When I saw this tablet had the same OS, then I was sold. When I synced my tablet to my computer and phone, which were already synced, BAM... instant syncing. Even some of the apps. All contacts, everything. I have not had a single problem and very happy with it. I have not used it for calls so cannot rate that.
One thing I tell my friends who are not big geeks is this is a tablet... it is not a laptop nor a computer. If you need something with full capability, then get a computer. This has a different purpose but can still support many business and school functions. However tablets in general still have limitations. When one understands that, then they'll love having a tablet.
I don't use it much for camera or video as I have high end video and still cameras that I prefer. But the quality is exceptional for the type of device. I was actually very pleasantly surprised with the video. The image quality and sound was much better than I expected. The photo apps are fun and I use them for some of the stills that I took on my DSLR because there are some cool features that Photoshop and the like don't have. Dropbox is an easy convenient portal between all my devices. Excellent way to move images. Any picture I take loads automatically into my dropbox which I then access on my desktop. It's like having my own mini network. Well, technically it is a network. I've linked my desktop, two laptops (one is Win7 and the other is a Linux/Ubuntu), my Galaxy s3 and this tablet all together. And it was easy to do so. Don't need to be an IT person to do it. I am forever sold on Android.
Thanks, Samsung and T-Mobile!
One item that could use improvement: The self-focusing with the camera could use improvement. Even when I would tap and put the cross hairs on what I wanted it to focus on, it wouldn't always "find" it.

Product great for personal and business use!
Purchased a total of 6 tablets for business. The devices have worked flawlessly as Point of sale stations in a mobile environment. The tablet is fast and responsive with fluid scrolling from screen to screen. The large screen size makes it easier for customers to sign for purchases with a stylus. Personally have a tablet as well, the sound quality is great for such a small device and it was truly a frustration free experience from taking it out of the box and begin using it.

Great experience so far
I picked not one but 2 of these yesterday (had special pricing in store). Just playing with it for 2 days I am very happy. Biggest likes are, front speakers and cellular coverage. I used that while getting my car service. The dealership had their WiFi down so cellular came super handy. Overall good portable device to do all basic functions. My wife and I are excited about this tablet!
