    Well I think my pick will be Olive Pad. A value for money purchase, and I believe a must have for a gadget fan! On the other side, Samsung Galaxy Tab is a put off for its price tag. Too much of an investment for just another 400 MHz of speed. Of course little things make big difference, and looking at the psychological impact that could have in the end, it sure is a pick for someone who isn't so "price-sensitive". I also have seen the review on gadget guru that claims Olive Pad to have been first such product form India. Well, that sure is another reason I can go for it. As far as the soft-platform is concerned, both devices offer the same. And for other features there is not much left to bargain. You've got sufficient speed with docs, now I must tell that having already positioned a product in the tab-PC category, I believe the company is all set to bounce back big time. All I can say is – Good or bad, Watch out!

      I would say that if the CRN news article is to be believed the accessories that the Galaxy would come with will offset the pricea little bit more. I am looking to buy the Galaxy Tab as a whole some entertainment unit for my Car and quality Car mount is something I find hard to find. I may be totaly wrong in the assumption if the box doesn't contain the accessories. I'm on my way to US and was looking to buy one from their but even there I have to do a Preorder and no sureity of getting one.

      Another important factor I looked at was that of service, which both Olive and Samsung Galaxy would fit here. A Galaxy from US would probably have charged service.

    i used both olive pad and galaxy tab…galaxy tab is far better…it is faster..most importantly screen is better and there is adobe flash player 10.1…u cant install adobe flash player 10.1 on olive pad due to some weird reason…also no support for front facing camera for video calling in fring and tango in olivepad which is done easily by galaxy tab…so galaxy tab is a winner all the way…

    I have an OlivePad, and so far not impressed. I have had it for about 12 days now, but I still can't seem to find a video player that can play normal 360p avi video files correctly. There is ALWAYS a problem in audio and video syncing.

    I am disappointed, and might sell it off cheap.
