    Great, so now the populace is really confused between iPad, Galaxy tab and Playbook.

  • CrystalGuy

    Lol… Android devices are best

    • Ashraf

      lol i have a Galaxy Tab (samsung), and it crashes when i open 3-4 websites in browser. [what i mean is the Browser crashes as soon i open 3-4 sites supporting Flash]. ANDROID is buggy and sucks.

      iPad is way better and so seems the play book :)

      • funkymonk

        I have used Galaxy tab .. and it never crashed on me like that ..
        are you sure you have not installed any virus infected app ?

        I do agree that it is not as stable as iOS though ..

  • Ahmed

  • Faisal

    500$=500×85=42500PKR
