The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids is a 7-inch Android tablet specifically designed for children. Looking more like a toy than a tablet, it boasts advanced parental settings, a dedicated kids mode, a handful of pre-loaded educational apps and an optional grip cover. But is it actually any better for your kids than the similarly priced iPad Mini?

We learned back in February that Virgin Australia would be trialling the Samsung Galaxy Tab as an in-flight entertainment option, and that only business class passengers would be in the first round of testing. But it turns out the trial is even more restricted than that: it's only running for a single week. Fortunately, there's better news ahead.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
Having previously promised a mid-April release, Vodafone has now slightly delayed the Australian release of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v. Pre-orders will be accepted from April 20, and the tablet will ship from May 1 and hit stores on May 4.
We looked at the key features in Honeycomb earlier in the year, but we're now getting much closer to the actual release of devices offering the optimised-for-tablet version of Android. I've been testing out the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v ahead of its official release, and it has some pretty nifty features for productivity-minded travellers.
We already knew that the Honeycomb-running 10.1 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet was a Vodafone exclusive. Now we have a firmer Australian release timeframe (mid-April) and one potential bit of good news for users who don't want to be locked to a Vodafone contract: the device will be available outright for $729.
You might well ask: why does Vodafone keep scoring the good Android deals? No price details yet, but Samsung just announced at its Aussie WMC press launch that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be Vodafone-only at launch in early Q2, as part of a global deal. The same doesn't apply to the Galaxy S2, fortunately.
Pretty much everyone agreed that $999 was way too much for the Samsung Galaxy Tab, so this is worth noting: Unique Mobiles is selling the Android-based Tab unlocked for $599. That's more like it, though I'll hazard a guess stock will move pretty quickly at that price. If anyone has bought from Unique before, tell us how well that went in the comments.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is the best high-end Android tablet on the local market right now (and priced to match), but its interface isn't ideal for everyone. Here's how Lifehacker reader Assaph tweaked his Galaxy Tab with a few familiar Lifehacker tweaks to make it work better.
We already know that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will cost $999. Now Samsung has set a firm release date for its Android tablet -- November 8 -- and lined up a series of local apps that will come installed on the device for Australian buyers.
