    I have a quick question here. I looked into the spec of the sprint and verizon galaxy tab. Looks like they are almost identical except that the sprint has 128MB One D-RAM installed and verizon version does not have. I also read from a blog which said that the verizon version was more feature crippled, such as it has no option for bluetooth keyboard or some HID (human input device).

    Anyone knows if the 128MB One D-RAM is not in the Verizon version? Is the claim of peripheral add-on feature limitation on verizon version true?

    What's the purpose of this D-RAM memory? Does that mean sprint tab is supposed to have better performance?

    Not sure what the D-RAM is for either but another difference AFAICT between the Sprint and Verizon Galaxies is the Verizon allows for the Tab to be set up as a WiFi Hotspot while the Sprint does not have a menu setting for this. OTH the Sprint Galaxy has an option for tethering via USB while I did not see this as an option on the Verizon Tab.

    Not true.

    Sprint does have Hotspot app which provides the menu to share the tab's Sprint HotSpot with other wifi enable devices.

    So its an app that is natively provided as part of Sprint's app package on the tab or you have to install it from market? It definitely was not in the menu settings for wireless like it is on my Sprint Optimus phone (which can also be used as a wireless hotspot) and I saw nothing on the phone home screens or in the app listing. Perhaps BB removed it from the floor model.

    Edit: Found the app on the floor model. Thanks.

    Yes (I think!). I have a wireless printer attached to my desktop and I can print from my laptops no matter where they are in the house. But if I can connect to wifi using the Sprint Hotspot app, can I then send print jobs through that to my internet connected PC?
