Introduction

It's not a smartphone. It's not a computer. It's the latest craze: the tablet. It exists somewhere between the traditional computer and the newfangled smartphone. That makes the tablet kind of an oddball, but quite a popular oddball.

Samsung's solution to your mobile, wireless, communications, information, and entertainment needs comes in the form of two tablets: the Samsung Galaxy Note and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. These gizmos do so much, yet they come with such scant documentation that you would lose the thing should there be a strong wind.

Anyone wanting more information about how to get the most from his or her Samsung Galaxy tablet needs another source. This book is that source.
