The reason for the delay? Getting Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich served up successfully for the devices, a Samsung spokesman said, IDG reports. He wouldn't say what issues required extra development time, setting the shipment back.

Samsung announced the Tab 2 pair at the Mobile World Congress show in February, saying both would arrive in the UK first.

The ten-incher has a 1280 x 800 IPS LCD panel, the seven-incher a 1024 x 600 screen. Both have a 1GHz dual-core CPU on board, with 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity. ®
