The Samsung Galaxy Tab is one of the only other major touch tablets on the market right now other than the iPad. It sports a smaller form factor and slightly more portable design than Apple’s iPad. However, unlike the iPad case and accessory market which can get quite overwhelming from the shear volume of options out there, the Samsung Galaxy Tab has relatively few options, and even fewer high quality choices. If you are on the market for a cover for your new little tablet then we’ve got you covered… literally and metaphorically. We’ve looked around and found the top 5 best Galaxy Tab cases and covers on the market to help make the decision.
