Questions & Answers
- Answer Simple answer... all Apple products are missing a "byte", just look at the logo :-) Seriously, the Samsung Tablet series has a faster dual-core processor, and expandable memory by adding up to a 32gb MicroSD card. The apps available for the Android users are far more greater and do not require the use of the problem plagued Itunes. More apps are free, and more apps are available.

Questionwi fi signal strengthI want to buy my daughter a media note book/tablet. The router is far from her room. Does the wi fi strength get better in a hgiher gb memory system?
- Answer This is actually a tricky subject. I'll try to explain it as simply as possible. Technically, the WiFi system on the Tabs will have the same range as your home wireless router. Since the Tab is receiving the wireless signal, it would have to be within the WiFi network's range in order for it to connect properly. If the Tab is out of range of the router, it will not have a steady or stable connection. Again, the range is determined by your wireless home network, and not the Tab. I highly recommend that you refer to your home network's (router) user manual for more information on its range. Also, please be aware, obstacles (like walls) and signals from other wireless sources (even a microwave) can interrupt your wireless signal. -MrSamsung
