Samsung Galaxy Tab Is an 'Over-Sized Phone', Not Tablet

Sencha, which is a web application  developer, has recently compared Android-based Samsung Galaxy Tab  and Apple's iPad and made a conclusion that a Samsung's tablet is "a little bit of disappointment".
"It doesn’t account for the fact that Apple offloads lots of tasks to the GPU for better performance, so a comparison isn’t entirely fair".
But, according to Sencha, the main disadvantage of Galaxy Tab is its CSS pixel to device pixel ratio.
"When queried in landscape mode, the Galaxy reports a screen.width of 683px and screen.height of 334px. [...] This makes the Galaxy slightly bigger than a regular phone screen in CSS pixels, but not really big enough to handle what people want to put in a tablet screen. [...] We think it's probably best to treat it as a phone with big pixels rather than a true tablet."
Concluding the tests, Sencha admitted:
"We're still waiting for the first awesome Android tablet".
