New series of Samsung Glalaxy Tab 2 tablets is a little better and cheaper than the one it replaces, and for that we to say thanks to Apple rival, which has reduced the price of iPad 2 tablet at just $400.
While Apple still adhere to the strategy of a limited supply of new products, but aggressively promoted and sold in huge volumes, Samsung has opted for a tactic of saturation of the market with all kinds of Android tablets in an attempt to cover every format, level equipment or range of possible prices.
Having already launched so many tablets, many of them being successful, Samsung has chosen to present the new Galaxy Tab 2 series only as an improved edition of the Galaxy Tab tablets for few months ago. Consequently, new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 specifications sounds pretty familiar: screen resolution of 1280×800 pixels, 16 GB internal memory and microSD card slot, 3 megapixel camera on the back side, that same dual-core processor at 1 GHz produced by Texas Instruments.
Along the exterior design, in terms of improvements we have Android Ice Cream Sandwich, promised by Samsung for older versions of the tablet, but delayed for reasons more or less justified. The news also include a set of front stereo speakers, located to the side of the screen, that an infrared transmitter that you can use in combination with Smart Remote application to control almost all devices on a home theater setup (even those that not manufactured by Samsung).
The package comes with 1 year of free subscription to Dropbox online storage service, where we have available in which to store 50 GB collection of pictures, music and movies. While the tablet comes with a recommended of $400, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is a high-end product and a direct competitor to the iPad 2. Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is addressed to midrange segment and aims at a more reasonable price of $250.
Tablet configuration includes the same dual-core processor at 1 GHz (TI OMAP 4430), 1GB RAM, 8 GB of internal storage and microSD slot, infrared transmitter, that Wi-Fi N and Bluetooth. Unfortunately smaller screen comes with a low resolution to 1024×600 pixels, rather than by current standards but acceptable for the price paid.
On the back side we find the same 3MP camera, and the next screen we have a VGA camera for video calls. Unfortunately left stereo configuration rather than a single mono speaker, on the front. Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 comes first in the United States, followed on May 13 by Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.
