Samsung Launches Galaxy Tab

Over the past week, Samsung has launched the Galaxy Tab to rave reviews from critics. Windows Phone 7 also came on the market, even as a study indicates iPhone and BlackBerry devices have the lowest failure rates. See what other topics were hot this week.

Samsung launched its Galaxy Tab tablet this week for T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless customers. A Sprint version of the device will be available on November 14. With the launch, Samsung now has the opportunity to take on Apple's iPad in the tablet space. That might be a tall order, but it's something that the tech company has been looking forward to for quite some time.

Plus, it allows for video conferencing, which should appeal to enterprise customers.
