Samsung Wants Everyone In Your Family to Have a Different Galaxy Tab

"And now there's the Galaxy Tab 2, with two models (7.0 and 10.1) that are very slightly improved, but not enough to justify a few hundred bucks."

There are two more tablets from Samsung that are not a lot different from the others. With the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 they are coming in at a nice low price point of $250. The 7.0 has a 1024x600 display and the 10.1 has a 1280x800 display - both are PLS (Samsung's form of IPS) LCD displays. Maybe the biggest change compared to previous Galaxy Tabs is that they both come with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Samsung did add a MicroSDHC slot to both the 10.1 and the 7.0 models. They're also using TI dual-core processors which, while they're great, they're generally a little slower than Samsung's own Exynos processors that were in some or all older models. The camera's are nothing to brag about with a 3MP in the back and VGA in the front. If you're not sure, VGA was good in about 1992. At least the 3MP is good enough to do 1080p video which both tablets can record at 30fps. One interesting feature on both Galaxy Tab 2's that apparently isn't new to Galaxy Tabs is an IR port for controlling your home audio and video equipment.

Really, you'd think Samsung could have just put Ice Cream Sandwich on some of their older Tabs that haven't sold and lower the price but I guess "newer" is "newer". Lots of people love their Galaxy Tabs so maybe there is more of a market for these than it seems. What do you think?

"When it released the original Galaxy Tab last year, Samsung became one of the first mainstream hardware vendors to deliver an Android tablet. With its new Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung kept the Galaxy Tab name and branding, but the new device has little else in common with its predecessor. Don't let the "10.1" fool you-this is all new."

The Galaxy Tab has proven itself to be one heck of a product! But it get's even better with the new Galaxy Tab 10.1 which includes Honeycomb! Check out this comprehensive review of the new Tab and let us know if you will be purchasing it!

Engadget Reviews The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: You Should Buy One

"When we met with Samsung in late May, company representatives didn't seem entirely sure that the company would meet the rumored June 8th ship date here in the US, but lo and behold, it's done just that."

That's just a down right sexy piece of kit if you ask me. I have no regrets purchasing my Xoom but wow does this baby look nice. After reading the review I'd highly recommend any of you going through a mid-life crisis trade in your old tablet for a younger, thinner model. ;) Though when you really get down to it I'd rather have the Asus for its really awesome keyboard dock. But that's just me. What Android tablet do you guys want?

Galaxy Tab 10.1" Compared to iPad 2 in Video

Posted by Craig Horlacher in "Android News" @ 04:00 AM

"Honestly, we were a little bit worried that Samsung's rail-thin Galaxy Tab 10.1 was a mockup -- you know, seeing as how Sammy never turned it on -- but fast-forward to today and there's a working model in Tinhte.vn's capable arms."

The Galaxy Tab 10.1" is one of the slickest, if not the slickest, Android tablets I've seen. The video shows the tablet from all angles and compares it to an iPad 2. They also show you around the Honeycomb interface a little and launch Angry Birds Rio on it next to Angry Birds Rio on the iPad 2. If you're tablet shopping you should definitely take a look at this video to see how the 10.1" variety of the Galaxy Tab stacks up to the competition. It's due to hit the stores on June 8 with the 16GB WiFi model selling for $500. Do you like what you see? Tell us your thoughts!
