  • “…HSPA+ connectivity up to 21Mbps…” I think that this will be one of the cool things about the Galaxy Tab. Finally something that will put the iPad and its “fast 3G connection” to rest! Once the Galaxy Tab 10.1 comes out, I am going to be buying me one! The first app that I will be getting will be the DISH Remote Access app. Using this app and my 922 SlingLoaded receiver at home, I can stream live TV or my recordings wherever I want. And because I will be using the 4G network, I will be streaming super fast! I can’t wait for this tablet!
