The 7-inch Samsung Galay Tabs are now available from from T-Mobile and Verizon, Engadget reports. AT&T, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular will offer the device "soon," according to Samsung's website.

Samsung's iPad competitor runs Google's Android smart phone software, sports front and rear-facing cameras, and plays Flash video from the Web. Steve Jobs himself criticized 7-inch tablets, calling them "too small" and "DOA, Dead on Arrival."

Critics are also raising concerns over the Tab's price tag, which varies slightly by carrier. T-Mobile, for example, offers the device for $399 with a two-year contract, $599 without.

Reviewers have had their hands on the Tab, and the verdicts are in. We've sampled reviews from Wired, New York Times, Gizmodo,
