E Dinkla: Not a word about Android tablet screen color calibration and Touch color management. Sure they hardly exist but should that not be mentioned?

If nothing else it's note worthy that if you use this on a Galaxy Tablet or anything with an AMOLED display, your color accuracy is completely lost.

daMatrix: This example just proofs that tablets are nowhere near laptop /desktop photo editing.

@ 2) The truth of it is that Adobe is losing money on this, much the same with a lot of the photo editing software available on iOS. This is largely due to market saturation and the supply and demand on mobile applications. These apps are meant to support those who use their vastly more expensive PC programs. If they sold Photoshop Touch at the price it would take to make money, nobody would buy it.

Even if tablet hardware was powerful enough to leverage apps as powerful as Adobe Lightroom, Apple Aperture, or Photoshop, until market saturation is some how contained, devs like Adobe, Nik, or Apple will not cannibalize their PC market.

Photog23: I think the SuperAMOLED screens in the Samsung smart phones put them head and shoulders above all other smart phone manufacturers, especially for viewing pictures and reading text. If you have never seen the screens, go get a demo. You'll be amazed. I'm not so interested in the smart phone form factor, but the Galaxy 7.7 that Samsung will be releasing soon with the same SAMOLED screen is going to be REALLY interesting to photographers.

But the down side about all of these phones is people never talk about call quality anymore, which means that call quality will continue to progress in it's path to irritatingly awful. This is why I owned and rejected a high end smart "phone". I've decided that they may be smart, but they aren't a phone. For me, a tablet and a flip phone with good call quality are the best combination of technologies.

Why any photographer would vouch for AMOLED is beyond my means of comprehension. Either that, or it's completely absurd.

The AMOLED technology has always overly saturated colors, thus making it the arch enemy of all artistic content creators. Why would you advocate a product that exaggerates your work, beyond how you intended it to be viewed?

What a photographer should always value the most is pixel density and color accuracy, which is precisely what the iPhone 4/4S' screen is the best at. One thing to note about the Galaxy Nexus is that this is the first debut of the "Super AMOLED Plus" display. Initial reviews have already noted that it suffers from reduced sharpness (despite being 720P) and even worse color saturation.
