    Dear sir?madam
    I am looking to buy a tablet-pc possibily samsung galaxy Tab..
    My question is regarding the inside software which opearates SIM card is default opensource android STK package OR it is developed by samsung copyright software
    To support the basic hardware are you using opensource software OR using any copyright software,, I am little worried for the copyright software BUT i am ok with opensource android software...It wil be good if entire software in galaxy-tab is opensource and no copyrighted software..

    Your question is a little vague, but I'll try to answer. First off, this response below is about android devices in general and not specific to the Galaxy Tab, but does apply to these devices.

    There is both open source and copyright software associated/available for any android based device. The base OS is open source. but individual devices may and probably do have copyrighted code included in the system. Most applications on the android market are copyrighted by their respective publisher. There are however a number of open source applications and or development products available for android applications as well.

    Hardware in these devices and their associated device drivers and software are usually proprietary. That being said, once your root your device, you do have access to this software and lots of developers do modify these in customizations and or in custom ROMS in order to add or unlock new functionality.

( i am not asking the expansion storage) i am looking for the dimension of the onboard storage OR ROMS..

    Typically the ROM is held in Nand. Getting into the memory dimensions and addressing is a bit over my head. I'd ask these questions on the XDA Samsung Galaxy Developers forum
