It's undoubtedly one of the most capable tablets released since Apple started the touch-screen tablet craze with the iPad. And Samsung's option boasts several different features that most consumers and even some enterprise customers might actually like. But when it's all said and done, Samsung's Galaxy Tab won't be able to capture more tablet market share than Apple's iPad. It's not that the device won't sell well-it already has and will likely continue to do so-but it's clear now that the Galaxy Tab doesn't have the kind of commercial power that Apple's iPad does. And try as it might to be more popular than Apple's tablet, it just won't be able to do it. Read on to find out why Samsung's Galaxy Tab will be popular, but not popular enough to beat Apple's iPad from a commercial perspective. Yes, it might have potential and it could steal some market share, but don't expect it to be an iPad killer.
