Samsung unveils the Galaxy Tab 2: The 7 inch Ice Cream Sandwich tablet

samsung-galaxy-tab-7-2.jpgYesterday Samsung revealed the Galaxy Tab 2, a tablet powered by Android Ice Cream Sandwich and the follow up to the company’s original 7 inch tablet.

Despite running on the latest build of Google’s mobile OS, it doesn’t differ too much from its predecessor, its still sporting a 7 inch screen (at 1024 x 600 resolution) and it’s now backed by a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM.

It comes with a 3MP rear-facing camera, a VGA front facing shooter, Bluetooth capabilities, and HSPA+ connectivity to round off the core specs.

JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics, said:

“Two years ago, Samsung GALAXY Tab began to offer customers more possibilities on the go. Since then, Samsung has actively enhanced our tablet line-up with several tablets in different sizes.

“The new GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0) will provide people with delighted multimedia experience and allow efficient communication.”

Set to hit the UK first by the beginning of next month, we’ll let you know about pricing info as we get it.
