The follow-up to last year’s Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 – at least because of its name if not because of specs — was introduced at the 2012 MWC in Barcelona and it finally made its way to the U.S. Three months later the tablet is available for purchase beginning today, May 13.
For $399.99 you will get a 10.1-inch tablet with 1280 x 800 resolution powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor and sporting 16GB Internal Storage (expandable via microSD card slot), three-megapixel rear-facing main camera and a VGA webcam for video chat. Android 4.0 Ice [...]
It’s seeming more and more plausible that some upgraded hardware will make its way into the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 before the stylus-based tablet makes its retail debut. That’s not the only Samsung tablet where we’ve been wondering about hardware changes, and there have been some rumors that we might see a similar treatment given to both upcoming Galaxy Tab 2 models. While there’s been at least one leak that seemed to suggest something odd was going on with those tablets, assigning them code names we hadn’t seen used before well after they had already [...]
By now, we’ve heard plenty of theories about just what Samsung’s planning for its May 3 London event. New smartphone hardware is what everyone’s expecting, but there also might be some talk of Samsung’s new cloud storage services. We’ve also mentioned the possibility of hearing some more about what’s going on with the company’s tablets, after a flurry of rumors claimed some hardware changes were in the process of being made, despite the company previously announcing different specs. That’s the alley we find ourselves back up tonight, with [...]
Amidst a CES with plenty of high-end tablets on display, we were a little let-down to hear of the underwhelming specs for Samsung’s Tab 2 models. Sure, they’d have Ice Cream Sandwich, but the rest of the figures were very much from last year. We held out hope that the Galaxy Note 10.1 would end up a little more impressive, and while at first it sounded like a virtual clone of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (stylus notwithstanding), we later heard rumors about the Note 10.1 getting some hardware upgrades prior to its release. Now there’s a new theory out that suggests [...]
Samsung seems to pride itself on having plenty of different Android tablet options available. In the past, they’ve largely been differentiated by screen size, but with upcoming models like the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the Galaxy Note 10.1, it’s clear that Samsung is also interested in producing devices that offer different hardware options for the same size display. A new leak out of France names a couple possibly-unknown Samsung tablets, but are these just code names with which we’ve been unfamiliar, or might they speak to new hardware altogether?
The document in [...]
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 was the first of the company’s tablets announced to arrive running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. A little bit later on, we learned about plans for a larger 10.1-inch version. While we’ve had a good amount of technical data on both tablets, the picture of their eventual release has been a little less clear. First it looked like there might be an international launch late last month, but those plans fizzled. Today Samsung has some news for us about the tablets’ release plans, revealing just how they’ll be making their way to [...]
After we heard that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 might arrive in June with a quad-core Exynos processor, it’s now time to take a look at another Samsung tablet launched prior to MWC: the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.
Office Depot has the 8GB WiFi-only variant listed for $399.99 (though it’s not possible to check-out), which is really an acceptable price, considering that the tablet is not packed with a truckload of raw horsepower. There’s a 10.1-inch display with 1280 x 800 resolution, 1GHz dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM, 3MP rear-camera and VGA front-facing [...]
