MWC 2012: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 hands-on

As you may already know, Samsung has announced a successor to its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, called Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Alongside it, the new Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has also been showcased at MWC 2012.

Curiously, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is just a minor update of the previous Tab 10.1 model. The only novelties include Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a MicroSD card slot (up to 64GB). Oh, and the case has been slightly redesigned, now being 9.7mm thin (as opposed to the 8.6mm case of the older Tab 10.1). The rest of the features have remained unchanged: 10.1 inch display with 1280 x 800 pixels, 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 3.2MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, and a VGA front-facing camera.

As for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, this is pretty much like the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. The differences are that the Tab 2 7.0 comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from day one, and there’s a 1.0 GHz dual-core processor inside (instead of a 1.2GHz dual-core one).

Both the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 should be released starting March, coming in two versions: 3G + Wi-Fi, or Wi-Fi only. For the moment, there’s no word on the prices of Samsung’s new tablets.
