MWC – Samsung announce the 10.1″ Galaxy Tab 2

MWC   Samsung announce the 10.1 Galaxy Tab 2

So, hot on the heels of their new 7″ Galaxy Tab 2 comes this, the larger 10.1″ version. This has a 1280×800 pixel screen with “PLS technology” which basically makes the screen clearer and viewable from more angles.


Running Android 4.0 (ICS), this will also have the TouchWiz user interface. Using a 1GHz dual-core CPU it has a 3 megapixel rear cam, VGA front cam and 1GB of RAM. It’s powered by a 7000mAh battery and you can get it in either 16GB or 32GB with a microSD slot for further expansion.

Word has it that this new version will arrive here in the UK in March. Pricing is yet to be unveiled. If we’re honest, we were expected a better screen resolution and CPU, so hopefully the price will be low to attract customers.
