Welcome to the Galaxy!

Let Dan Gookin help you get to know your Galaxy Tab

Fabulous device. Flimsy documentation. So again, it's Dan Gookin and For Dummies to the rescue! Dan shows you how to conquer the Galaxy, from initial set-up to video chatting and beyond. Learn to e-mail, web surf, play movies and music, read eBooks, navigate, take pictures, track appointments, print documents, and so much more, the Galaxy Tab way.

  • Talk to the Tab — dictate text to appear on the screen, or command the Tab with your voice
  • That social stuff — update your Facebook status, tweet, explore other social networks, maintain contacts, e-mail, and chat
  • You are here — use Maps to find out where you are, where your friends are, and how to get where you're going
