Unboxing the Samsung Galaxy Tab, part 1

When it rains, it pours – a few days ago the PR folks at both Verizon and Sprint each sent me a Samsung Galaxy Tab to play with :)

Unboxing the Motorola Droid Pro, part 1

Most obvious is the QWERTY keyboard, which looks and feels exactly like a BlackBerry keyboard.

Sadly, the portrait layout means the screen is smaller (3.1″) and lower resolution (HVGA – 480×320 pixels) than its siblings.

I’ve already recorded the launch of this phone for Engadget during CTIA, but check out my unboxing video and expect some pictures soon!
