    It is. Same buttons, same methods of how you scroll and such. You can use your phone apps on it also, it just stretches it out a bit. I carry a wifi model and that has been sufficient. There is one spot that if I have to have something to look at (iom, etc), I just drive over there and use it.

    To be honest, the PDF reader app does crash sometimes when you are trying to do a lot with it and have a bunch of other apps running. Keep in mind I do have an iPad 1 too.

    Being able to bookmark individual pages is golden though. It saves a ton of time.

    I rarely get on my pc anymore because of it also.

    Galaxy Tab 2. Perfect. Once you buy an ipad, most never buy ipad the second time. The galaxy is the way to go and the Galaxy 3(phone), kicks iphones a$$

    SAMSUNG
    Always here

    No my distributor did but i did my iphone and i wouldn't want any other phone and ive played with a Galaxy at the verizon store but not enough to like it or not, im used to apples products so im probably a little biased.

    4s gonna get the 5 when i get another upgrade on my account. There doesn't seem to be too much difference in the two, kind of disappointing. I want it for the 4G coverage though, computers can't be fast enough for me, very impatient with them.

    We use Android tabs and phones.
    Has anyone tried Evernote? Works with BB, IPHONE, ANDROID,PC & MAC.
    That is the number one app/program I use. I have in cloud storage very well organized pdfs, site pictures, audio files such as voice memos or sounds equipment was making on inspection.
    I could probably explain it best as cloud computing with a road map how to organize and find things you have entered. If anyone is interested I will explain further. There are vids on Youtube that explain it as well as on their site.

    I also use Quickbooks Online from any computer or my phone or tablet. My office manager can see what I've done almost immediately from her workstation as well. They also have a device that plugs onto an iphone to read credit cards for accepting payment. I'm told they are working on that for Android as well.

    We have huge dataplans for cheap bux that we never exceed. 6GB/$30. If we use WIFI it only kills the battery quicker.

    The last census I heard on the news was that operating systems for phones are now split up this way for usage. 69% Android, Less than 20% IOS. The "others" make up the difference.

    I haven't had any istuff but I'm not slamming the ibrand. I have had all three Samsung Galaxy phones with the SGIII being the best of the three. I will not be switching as I am sold on the quality and performance.

    Makes me wonder way Apple iPhone 5 even made the news selling only 5 million phones and just effecting the GDP by 1/2 to 3/4 present...

    Yeah it might be called that. We just started the switchover in year end as they have no program in place to transfer files. Do you have experience with it? Pros or Cons?
