Android Apps appear to work fine on Samsung Galaxy Tab

Analyst Rob Enderle of Enderle Group said in a recent statement that Android Market apps may not be too pleasing on the Samsung Galaxy Tab, due to the reason that Android 2.2 OS has not been optimized for devices having a screen bigger than 4-5 inches. However, the Android community’s hands-on experience with the device at last Thursday’s Samsung Tab Event indicated that the apps work fine on the tablet.

The Galaxy Tab’s real world tests, which incidentally do not stack up with the “expert opinion,” clearly show that the screen resolution of the 7-inch tablet will not be a problematic issue for apps running on the device.

The Android community, which got hands-on experience on the Galaxy Tab at the event, found that the apps appear to be functioning just fine; and there currently seems to be no scaling issues at all affecting the performance of the device.

Going by the indications, the Samsung Galaxy Tab will likely appeal to most users because it offers a pretty good experience on a number of fronts reading, web browsing and video/multimedia; and also supports video chatting.

However, with Google’s mobile product development director Hugo Barra having acknowledged the fact that the Android experience is not meant for tablets, as of now, users looking for a decent experience with Android apps will have to wait till Android developers begin designing or optimizing apps for the tablet market.
