Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Tablet Goes On Preorder For £229

Carphone Warehouse has put the Galaxy Tab 2 7in tablet on preorder for a mere £229. The device which appeared at MWC in February will be available for delivery on the 11th of May.

Like its predecessor, it comes with a 7in PLS screen and a 1,024 x 600 pixels resolution. However, it does surpass the original Galaxy Tab by offering a dual core processor clocked at 1GHz, 1GB RAM and Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

However, it is a major let down that the Tab 2 comes with only 8GB storage (compared to 16GB for the previous one) although it does have a microSD card slot.

Other features include a three megapixel back facing camera, a front facing webcam, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and up to 10 hours battery life when viewing movies.

The Galaxy Tab will face some serious competition from much cheaper but lesser known rivals from the likes of Ainovo, Archos or Viewsonic, all running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

It's worth noting that Samsung has not confirmed whether or not it will be selling a 3G version of the tablet (which would make of it a massive phablet).
