This can't be right. It will have to be HD. It can't be lower def than Samsung’s 4.6" Galaxy Nexus.

Maybe this is the low-end version that is supposed to complete with the $100 Colby? The real one will be announced next week at MWC?

What's the point of releasing last year's specs on a device that basically carries the exact same stuff?

This isn't the Tab 2 model Samsung wants to push, imo. I expect to see a more formidable version, like an enhanced Tab 7.7, to be shown.

This Tab 2 is real, it's just not the mass market device Samsung is holding close to it's chest. I hope, anyway.

Oh, I am not happy to see a HSPA+ radio on a brand new Samsung device. I am really hoping to see an LTE compatible device with a Samsung processor pushing it in the next 3 or 4 months.

1 Ghz processor?? That can't be right...

Predator04 says:

1ghz dual core.... the original tab isnt dual core

MTC001 says:

The original Galaxy Tab 7 isn't the newes model of the series right now. The galaxy Tag 7 PLUS uses the 1,2(!) Ghz Exynos CPU/GPU Chipset. So 1Ghz for the Tab 2 seems like a joke!

Are you sure this piece wasn't scheduled for April 1?

Seriously, WTF? "Here's our brand new tablet. It's a bigger, less powerful version of our phones!"

Channan says:

Shouldn't this be the Galaxy Tab 0.5? They seem to be going backwards...

lexs says:

this better be damn cheap...also very interesting that it supports Glonass

DaGODFather says:

Maybe this Tablet is to compete with the Kindle Fire??

Who has a ICS capable tablet with an SD card slot? That's what I want. I do remote filming on an GoPro HD Hero, which records to an SD card. I want to slip that card into my tablet and watch the video to know if I need to do something else.

I already have the monitor "backpack" for my HD Hero, but I'm currently hauling around an old laptop which I use only to view the filmed bits on a decently sized monitor to see what's going on.

Give me a tablet with an SD card slot, can read the H.264 funky GoPro videos (allow me to install a codec if needed), and give me the ability to tether, since Verizon won't bundle (share) data plans across devices.. and I'm buying it.

The Toshiba thrive or the thrive 7

spagmuff says:

To everyone complaining about the specs, I'm pretty sure this is going to be a budget tablet. That's why the specs aren't that good. Maybe it's supposed to be a kindle fire competitor? I will definitely get one if it's <£250

Amazon has the best galaxy tabs anywhere online. Need a discount code? Just google TMAC DEAL SNOOPER - They have a gold box on the site that will spit out a discount code of any galaxy tab that you enter (just type in galaxy tab s). Really neat and I use it all the time and save big on nikon scopes and other products using this tool.
