Samsung’s new Galaxy shoots for iPad, misses - Business - The Boston Globe

Concluding paragraphs of a Hiawatha Bray review
"With so many strong features, Samsung may hope that it has finally developed a serious threat to Apple’s dominance in tablets. But for the same price, you can get an entry-level iPad with the splendid Retina display.
And Samsung’s got an even bigger problem: Android. The software just doesn’t have the elegant, intuitive look and feel of the iPad. Besides, relatively few of Android’s hundreds of thousands of apps have been optimized to run on tablets; Google won’t say exactly how many, but it is surely not nearly as many as Apple, which boasts 225,000.
Samsung is already drawing blood from Apple in the vital smartphone market, with superb handsets like the Galaxy S III. Perhaps it can attain equal success in tablets. But not yet."
