Samsung Galaxy Tab 2

Android Central at Mobile World Congress There are those who swear by the 10-inch tablet, and then there are those who say that the smaller size is the only way to go. Samsung's brought out new hardware for both, with the newly announced Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1-inch), and this, the previously announced 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2.

We're still not entirely sold on the need for all the variations of the smaller-size tablets, but the 7-incher GTab2 does feel great in the hand. It's got all the usual Samsung improvements, including TouchWiz running atop Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The 7-inch PLS TFT display (that's Samsung's version of an IPS screen) rock a 1024x600 resolution, and it's all powered by a 1GHz processor.

We've got more pics and hands-on video after the break.

Hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7-inch)


Is it just me, or is this remarkably similar to the previous iteration of the Galaxy Tab? What kind of price can we expect? Kindle Fire gives you dual core for $199, so this can't be more than that, right?

Kindle Fire is single core I believe.
That being said, I'm not fond of Samsung's products.
I have a GS2 and wish I had kept my HTC Glacier. Far too many annoyances in Samsung's software for my liking.

ur an idiot kindle fire is dual core and shitty ass mytouch 4g over gs2 are u serious? its clear u dont know anything or what is good for that matter. i bet u just jumped on the android bandwagon too since u barely know anything. picking a mytouch over the gs2 u must have mental retardation

Samsung needs to sell it lower price or similiar price than that of kindle.7-inch tablet market has flourished a lot after Kindle Fire and it will be interesting to watch how consumers respond to this new launch


I believe Verizon is selling it for 400 in tomorrow? I could be wrong but I thought that is what I read. 200 should be the price no more

My take on the sizes, 10" is ideal for web surfing and video watching. 7" is the sweet spot for mobile gaming.

In any case, this seems rather lack luster with all the competition. The price would have to be pretty competitive to make it stand out from the Nook and Fire. At 7”, 1280x800 is the nerd’s playground right now. This thing is competing for the soccer moms and they are interested in cost first, and quite frankly Amazon probably has a better name brand among soccer moms than Samsung.
