As a random surprise from the love of my life, one day he brought home a Samsung Galaxy Tab for me. I've been having a hard time finishing my blogs on time because of my busy schedule and I was hoping I can do part of my blogs during lag time in blogging events. That way, I can save a lot of time from writing and I can keep my agreements.

I wanted a Samsung Galaxy tablet for some time now but I decided to delay the purchase because its a "want" not a "need" at the moment. With the construction of our new home and monthly bills, its not easy to shell out about 500 to 600 dollars. But my husband knows how much I love my work and he knows how a Samsung Galaxy Tab will make my blogging turn around time better.

So when I went to the Samsung Galaxy Tab™ 7.7 Launching Event in Eastwood last February 4, 2012, I was surprised to hear that Samsung's catch phrase for that Event was "Samsung Galaxy Tab, making life better". As a proud user of a Samsung Galaxy Tab, I can say with much confidence that indeed it does make my life better. Now at work, its more of a "need" than a "want".

Let me give you the reasons why I can say that my Samsung Galaxy Tab™ can make my life easier:
|SAFE delivers enterprise-friendly capabilities to help safeguard sensitive data and communications.|
1. On the last day of exchanging our credit card charge slips for a reward from a particular restaurant, we left our condo quite late already. My husband and I thought that if we just go to places we think has the restaurant we were looking for, we might just end up in traffic. And we don't like that because were were awfully tired already the whole day. Good thing he used the Android app, Maps, before we left and was able to search for the restaurant of our interest that are nearest to our place. That saved us a lot of time and made life much better for the two of us. As a result, we were able to visit the restaurants we wanted to go in a shorter span of time before it closed and we got our free dinner.

2. When anyone of us in the family has nothing to do, the game apps in our Samsung Galaxy Tab™ keep us entertained. A few of our favorite games are Fantasy Town, Bubble Shoot, Four in A Line and my son's favorite Fruit Ninja.
|The Galaxy Tab 7.7 runs on the Android Honeycomb 3.2 OS.|
3. Because of my Samsung Galaxy Tab™ I don't have to bring a laptop bag together with my handbag. Less things to carry and to think about. This is helpful especially for a klutz like me who according to my son sometimes has a memory of a goldfish.

And most importantly:
4. I can start the draft of my blog, take photos, videos and post status updates (as long as there's free wifi available) during blogging events! It's so much fun to blog nowadays.

Now the only drawback I can see is the phone capabilities of theSamsung Galaxy Tab™. I haven't actually tried it but a lot of my friends are saying its just weird to have someone put a tab beside their ear and talk. It looks (as its been described to me) "kind of Jurassic". But I guess that's what earphones are for? My resolution is that I'm still keeping my phone which is by the way a Samsung Corby. I owe a lot of respect to my Samsung Corby. It's one of my partners in business. My Samsung Corby has given me so much in return to what I have paid for it.

Anyway, I haven't fully explored my Samsung Galaxy Tab because I am quite busy but I've got a few apps I've picked up from the Samsung Galaxy Tab™ 7.7 Launching Event. I downloaded these Android Apps for free from the Market which I think will be really useful to me in the near future. Some of these apps include MMDA, CamScanner, AnMoney(Free) and Stylish Girl.
|. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 weighs only 340 grams.|
Now the question is will I upgrade to Samsung Galaxy Tab™ 7.7?
