Samsung Galaxy in Memphis Conclusion

I was never interested in a tablet when they first arrived.  It seemed like another gadget that was going to become available only to the wealthy.  Maybe something you would find at a local “Sharper Image”.  As time went on, competition grew between manufacturers and the prices of these portable devices began to slowly decline.  Different features were added and so the competition grew fiercer.  And that still continues to this day.…

Samsung Galaxy in Memphis cont…
