Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7-inch & 10-inch Announced

Samsung has officially unveiled two new Galaxy Tab 2 tablets, a 7-inch model which was already in the public eye and a new 10.1-inch model.

You can read more about the 7-inch model - which is essentially a revisited version of the original Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet without phone calling capabilities - here.

As for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 inch, it appears that it is a cheaper version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 as it doesn't come with the high definition screen we were expecting.

It runs a dual core processor clocked at 1GHz and has a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 pixels capacitive touchscreen like its predecessor.

It also has a 7000mAh battery, 16GB onboard storage, 1GB RAM, Bluetooth 3.0, USB, Wi-Fi, a three megapixel camera with a VGA front facing one, GPS and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Samsung has also included a few of its own features including the TouchWiz user interface, Samsug Hub, Samsung AllShare Play, Kies and ChatOn mobile communication device.

Expect the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to be pitched at an even lower price point than the current Galaxy Tab 10.1 (possibly down to £300), with the new Galaxy Note 10.1 being the new high end, top of the range large screen tablet at Samsung.
