    samsung galaxy s2

    I have the galaxy tab - its excellent - was tempted witht he S2 as the screen is awesome but went for a HTC desire Z as I need the fold out keyboard. For me the tab is better than the ipad in cost , expandability, size and the fact it plays flash... The bigger 10 in tab will be interesting

    How to take in Dash 6 Disc CD Changer out?
