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.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
