Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 goes up on Amazon and Office Depot for $399

GALAXY Tab 2 10.1

Samsung has released the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 last month for an almost Kindle Fire-like price of $250 for the 8GB model. Since the Tab 2 7.0 comes with a microSD card slot, the storage shouldn’t put off buyers, given that the tablet does come with a snappy 1GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. But what happened to the bigger Galaxy Tab 2 10.1,  which has been reportedly delayed to receive a quad-core processor upgrade?

It seems that the plan to fit the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with a faster processor has been shelved by Samsung. The tablet is now up on two different online stores and it still packs a dual-core processor. You can now pre-order the 16GB model of Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 on Amazon and Office Depot for $399. While the latter said the tablet will be shipped out on May 11, Amazon lists it at a slightly later date of May 13.

Although the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is only an incremental update over last year’s model, it is by no means an unattractive tablet. The 10.1-inch screen comes with a 1280 x 800 resolution, which makes the tablet serve its purpose well as a couch companion, as you browse for the latest news on Android Authority. Granted, it’s no Galaxy Note 10.1, but that one seems to be perennially delayed, with endless design changes rumored. We think the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 would make a worthy stopgap tablet until the big one comes along later in the year.

    Stop gap tablet? Are you saying people need to buy this to replace their last years Galaxy Tab 10.1 with same specs while they wait to buy Galaxy Note 10.1 in a few months. Again possibly with same specs but also with a stylus. So you think people should buy 3 tablets in a year all pretty much with same specs. Good avice! Korean people tank you for supporting their industry.

    I bought the new 10.1 tab 2, and I absolutely love it. I’ve been wanting a tablet for over a year. I could do easy internet stuff like twitter, facebook, surfing, and listening to internet radio, podcasts, and music that was smaller and more mobile then my laptop. And also i like play HD game with this gadget and run smoothly. Music sounds great. YouTube is cool to watch. Its nice to review my photos on a lightweight screen while sitting in bed.The display is bright and crisp, text is very easy to read even when I have screen brightness all the way turned down. There is nothing negative I have to say. This is THE tablet to have!
