Samsung selects UK as first to get next-gen tablet
Tab 2 (7.0) and (10.1) here next month
Samsung has revealed that its third-gen Galaxy Tab Android tablet will hit the UK first when it begins its worldwide rollout next month.
Previously shown in its 7in, Tab 2 (7.0) form, the new Tab will also be made available with a 10.1in screen, Samsung confirmed, as the Tab 2 (10.1).
The latter has a 10.1in, 1280 x 800 IPS LCD screen. It'll run Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich on its 1GHz dual-core processor.
It has 21Mb/s HSPA+ 3G connectivity and 2.4GHz 802.11n - a lesser spec than that offered by the newly announced Galaxy Note 10.1, which has dual-band Wi-Fi.
The Tab 2 (7.0) has the same spec, but packs in display with a 1024 x 600 resolution.
There's no word yet on pricing but, as we say, the Tab 2s will be out next month. ®
Same old, same old. People are better waiting for Ipad 3 - although the Windows 8 hardware coming out Q4 is very, very intriguing.
Too little too late
Asus already has a full HD display version lined up called the 300.
Are they running the same chip from last years tablet.
Is it a Tegra 2? Seems an odd choice as everyone will be running Tegra 3 this year.
Interesting they have gone down the front design route of the 10.1N. I guess this is to prevent lawsuits from Apple but I think I prefer it... and this is coming from an iPad owner!
Aren't we so lucky...
So the UK buyers are keeping you afloat Samsung? That's good. Then iPad 3 gets released? I think I'll keep the ice-cream sandwich for it's tasty delights :). A real one, not a floppy electronic one.
