    I've been thinking of getting myself a tablet as I see people using them everyday and think to myself why should I miss out?

    I've been browsing about for a few weeks and I've narrowed it down to either an iPad 2 or Samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1.
    Does anyone have one or both of these and give me some pro's and con's?

    I would probably use it for games, music, films, social network sites, browsing internet, email blah blah... but I'd also use it for reading comics/books and maybe some university work so I'd probably need Microsoft office type apps and a USB would be useful on a tablet IMO.

    I have a Samsung laptop which is great and I use it for work, however I also have a iPhone meaning I already have iTunes account already which makes me think i can transfer things from my iPhone to iPad which would be cool.

    Help would be greatly appreciated!

    I've heard that there is a lot more 'flexibility' with the Samsung tablet as appose to the iPad meaning you can do things your way rather than Apples way. Still in 2 minds though :confused::confused:
