Hello!

My father has got an offer from a company worth 35K. My father decided to buy a Tablet with that as we don't own. We can stretch to 40K if needed. But I think I should wait for the S3 to come to the market. So, What to buy? Phone or Tablet? It would be highly appreciated for the opinions and suggestions.[:)]

I guess Galaxy note would be a perfect fit. It's big enough to serve as a tablet and still fits in palm to be used as a phone. Fast processor coupled with amazing touch screen.

Sorry, not a Note as it is a bit older product.

EDIT: It's not an offer, we are buying it.

galaxy s3 is rumored to launch on 31st may for a price of 42500.

even if you want to buy a new product , its better to wait for a month or two , normal availability as well as prices are slashed down. so i'm guessing you can buy it for 36-38k after waiting some time.

also , tablet i feel can only be used indoors. i mean it looks really odd when a person records something or takes pictures or even talk on tablets [lol]

s3's screen is 4.7 \ 4.8" so its more than enough.

and you didn't specify your needs [:)]

Agree. For the specs, I need is everything[lol]! But I think he will wait for a month or two[sleep] There's also a big competitor to S3, the One X.

Oh ok ao you want the top end phone :p

It depends on his dad's mood [:D] his dad and his sis purchased a iphone 4s and galaxy note so jez reluctant to add another 40000 expense [:D]

But yes he will buy within a week of galaxy s3 launch because he can't wait and if the price difference of s3 and one x is more than he may buy the one x.

I would suggest you to go for the new flagship offering from Samsung that is the SIII.Bookings have already begun in Samsung Smartfone cafes.
If you want something like a tablet , go for the Galaxy Note. But its currently running Gingerbread. Its expected to get Android 4.0 ICS update soon which would in-turn improve the overall performance drastically.

@Vishnunarayanan, obviously I'am waiting for the S III. But Galaxy Note is not in my range.
The Phone/Tablet I 'am going to buy should have ICS stock installed. And of course, developer support too.

I visited a Samsung Cafe today to have a glance at the Samsung Galaxy SII and the guys there were pushing me to wait and opt for Galaxy SIII seeing my interest in SII. There I saw a board "Bookings Open for Galaxy SIII" . According to the people there SIII would be around 36000-38000.
