Samsung Launch Details: Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

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 Android fans in the States.

The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will be the first to arrive, with pre-orders opening in just a couple days, on April 12. Even then, the wait for the tablet to arrive won’t be long at all, and retail availability will start later this month on April 22.

There’s a bit of a longer wait for the Tab 2 10.1, though it’s still going to get here relatively soon. Pre-orders for this model will kick-off on May 4, with the actual tablet showing-up on May 13.

The seven-inch Tab 2 will run you just about $250, which could see it steal some customers away from the Kindle Fire. The ten-incher is going to sell for nearly $400, matching the pricing we’d already seen.
