New Samsung tablet ships starting in March

If you are in the market for a new tablet and you don't want anything with the Apple logo on it, Samsung has a new tablet you might want to check out. The tablet is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 it runs Android 4.0. The tablet has a 1 GHz dual core processor and a 7-inch WSVGA screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600. The screen uses PLS TFT LCD technology and it has a VGA resolution camera on the front.
 
Other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS, micro-SD card slot, and a 4000 mAh battery. The tablet can be had in 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB storage capacities. The tablet is very portable with a 10.5 mm thick profile and uses Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. That special user interface is a sore point for some Samsung users; it tends to hold up Android updates.
 
The tablet will launch first in the UK starting in March and there'll be Wi-Fi only in Wi-Fi plus 3G versions. It looks like pricing ranges in Scandinavian countries from the equivalent of US$420-US$463 for the Wi-Fi only tablet and US$523-US$568 for the 3G version. Pricing for the new tablet in the UK has not been announced.

Might be out of date, but only if you are one of the people here who have to have the latest/greatest. Typically people that I know who have bought tablets are not spec junkies.

At $500 a piece, I'd better get the latest and greatest. This is just a tablet after all.


Less filling, tastes flat...rather have 2 for 1.

I ordered 2 HTC EVO View 4G 7" tablets from Newegg for $249/ea. with pretty much the same specs, except it only has HoneyComb 3.2 OS and 1 cpu @ 1.5Ghz instead of 2 at 1Ghz.

I have a Kindle fire. Yes it is not full featured but it does everything I want to do.
