Samsung Officially Reveals the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0)

Samsung has officially unveiled its newest tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0). This device is the successor to the original Samsung Galaxy Tab which was released back in 2010. The tablet runs Android's Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and is built around a 7" 1,024 x 600 PLS LCD display and comes equipped with a 1GHz dual-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM, WiFi and a 3MP rear-facing camera.

However, if you just bought a new Samsung Galaxy Tab and are upset, don't be because there is a lot of information about this device that suggests it is a budget model targeted at entry-level consumers. The main camera is fixed-focus and doesn't have an LED flash, plus the front-facing camera is only a VGA resolution camera as opposed to your standard 1.3MP or higher camera. In addition to that, the device is only 10.5mm thick, which makes it kind of chunky compared to most other tablets released by Samsung.

The reason for the bulk is to accommodate WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS and HSPA+ connectivity. There is also 16GB to 32GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot and a 4,000 mAh battery to top it all off, though Samsung has yet to announce how long the battery will last.

Like I said earlier, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is the operating system, making the Galaxy Tab 2 the first one released by the company to come pre-loaded with the software. Other software includes TouchWiz modifications, content hubs, ChatON IM, KIES Air and support for DLNA. That's all the information Samsung has released so far with specific pricing and release dates still unavailable, though it was announced that it's scheduled to be released first in the UK at the beginning of March.
