Price Drop Alert
I’m an iOS developer that would like to expand over to Android-land. But alas, I currently know very little about Android-land.
Would this be an ok device to have and cut my teeth porting over some of my iOS apps?
Probably not. It is a dual core tablet, get a quad core or better with at least 2 GO mmemory.
Samsung has lots of tablets on sale on Amazon or Best Buy. I like the Galaxy Pro series. You can also look at the Tab S products.
I would disagree with Stanase, depending on what kinds of apps you develop and what your target demographic is. If your goal is to make software that will need a lot of power, he’s right. If you want a broad audience, shoot for a few different devices. Perhaps even one of those $50 cheap-o ones you can find online.
This is by no means a bad tablet. It’s not cutting edge, but it’s not bad. If you just want something that runs android for development purposes, consider getting a CuBox-i, Ouya, or similar. You can get it to the specs you want, it will be cheaper, and it can run linux (should you want to do more with it). No touch screen, but you can fake it with a mouse.
How does the Galaxy Tab compare to Motorola Xoom?
Galaxy tab wins!
For this price?
We have this one and we’re very happy with it.
Finally, one with a standard mobile device USB socket! (None of that proprietary connector business for me, thanks.) This looks difficult to pass up.
I got the 7" a month ago off woot. A real steel at 100 bucks. I wouldn’t mind the larger unit but this has been fun and interesting.
I see there’s several mature ROM options at XDA if you don’t like the stock Android.
Can this be updated to the latest Android OS?
Yes, I bought one a week ago and upgraded to the latest Android 4.4.2. Just go to settings,update and keep updating until you get the latest one. enjoy.
Dead on arrival! Will not charge using factory supplied travel charger nor will my charger that came with my S5 would charge the thing. Tried hooking it up to my PC. Nothing. Confirmed with Samsung Live Chat: Dead on arrival. I thought Woot would have had better Quality Control.
