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.
