The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 were announced by Samsung in February, when the company said both devices would be available starting March, running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Unfortunately for those who’ve been waiting for them, the tablets have not been released yet.
Now, ComputerWorld is reporting that Samsung had to delay the launch of the new tablets to late April. According to a Samsung spokesman, “Samsung and Google need some more time to work on Android Ice Cream Sandwich”, and that’s why the devices aren’t available. We have no other details on this for now, but it’s likely that Samsung has some problems integrating its tablet-specific TouchWiz UX UI with ICS.
Samsung will introduce the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (pictured above) in the UK first. After that – probably meaning in May – the tablets will be released in more markets around the world. For the moment, there’s no word on how much the new Tabs will cost.
