My wifi version can stream a couple of movies from my file server in a row before needing a refill. And i'm not really sure but I think I could do some web surfing and games after that as well without too much trouble.

Thanks mate. From what I have read online many reviewers say this device has the worst battery life out of all the other Android tablets. It's a shame considering how it looks and runs!

Hi, What are you using to stream over the home network, - I cant find allshare or any reference to it on my tab (or marketplace) is there another method of doing it?

Re battery life - I'm finding I need to charge the tab overnight - but compared to the galaxy s its fantastic. Quite difficult to source back up chargers though due to the amps req
cheers

While on subject of Samsung Tablets has anyone seen the 8.9 around NZ for sale. I saw something on mobicity website but they dont actually have the device sort of pre-order which is a bit off.
I currently have a 7" Samsung and would like tos ee if the 8.9 is any better. It is a 100 grams heavier

ES File Explorer can connect to my windows shares pretty happily. Dice player seems the best player for me; once i bought it.

Skype now supports the 10.1 with video chat. You'll have to update and then enable the video through the settings menu.

The quality seems pretty decent all things considered. I'm happy regardless.

Can you stream from other Galaxy devices? like a S2 to the Tab?

Anyone knows if Navignon is free on the 10.1? If so how do I get it?
