The Tablet Trade: iPad vs. Galaxy

Samsung's Galaxy, the first tablet to use Google's Android operating system, will hit stores later this month. But can the Galaxy be a player in a world dominated by Apple's iPad?

The "Android onslaught" will come, said Collin Gillis of BGC Partners, but it's not here yet. He isn't too excited about the Galaxy because it's screen is too small — at least compared to the iPad. At seven inches, it might be small enough to fit in your pant pocket, but he thinks most people want to store their smartphone there.

For Gillis' full thoughts on the device, watch the video.
