With the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 set to release soon, the Galaxy Tab series, with its latest iterations, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 7.7 have been relegated to a low-to-mid-range series. Be that as it may, some consumers are more than happy with a dual-core processor device which is enough to meet their basic everyday needs of checking email, surfing the net, video chatting, and watching the occasional movie. Let’s be blunt, that’s all most of us use our tablets for anyway.
Anyone in the UK looking for a mid-range 10″ tablet now has another option available for their consideration: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1″ will be available from tomorrow, June 22. As a quick recap, here are the specifications of the device:
- 10.1-inch WXGA PLS TFT display
- Dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor
- Android 4.0 out of the box
- 8/16/32GB internal storage, expandable via microSD
- 1GB RAM
- 3.2MP rear camera, 2MP front camera
- 7,000mAh battery
Clove UK has the listed the 16GB WiFi-only model, with the WiFI + 3G version requiring an additional investment, again for a device with 16GB internal storage.
While the device is decidedly mid-range, the good thing is that it comes with Android 4.0 out of the box, an update which is not yet available for the original Galaxy Tab 10.1 owner. The price tag could be a deciding factor as well.
