Apple iPad 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1V

Here the main specs of  Apple iPad 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1V. iPad dominated the tablet market since its launch, but what about the Android-powered tablets, we think it is fair to compare the Ipad 2 with a good Android tablet.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Apple's iPad 2 is very thin.
Ipad 2 has a VGA(0.3 megapixel) front camera and a 0.7 megapixel rear camera.

As thin as the iPad 2 and even lighter.

The iPad's screen resolution is not as good as Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Lack of a dedicated USB port on the tablet is a problem
No SD card slot.
The plastic seems and feels less solid than the iPad 2.
