Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 announced

See, we told you it wasn't just the 7-incher

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10 1 announced

Samsung has decided to get in just before MWC 2012 kicks off and has unveiled the next in its second-generation tablet range: the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.

Following on from the Tab 2 7.0, the new larger-screened device features the likes of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich to you and me) a 1GHz dual core processor and a 3MP rear-facing camera.

A 7000mAh battery promises to keep you going through the day, and there's a VGA front-facing camera for video calling should the wind take you.

The same, but different…

However, Android ICS aside, there's not a lot that we can see to really call this an upgrade over the original 10.1 – and it's even thicker and fatter than the original to boot.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 was a similar affair – an update to the latest version of Google's OS but not much of a difference in the way of specs.

We're hoping the fact we're seeing a re-badged model from last year means we'll be getting something of a price plunge too – given the first Tab 10.1 can be had for around £360 now, a sub-£300 tag would be just lovely. We have been given a Galaxy 2 10.1 UK release date of March, so not long to wait now.

We're going to be getting our mitts on this latest tablet very soon, so stay plugged into TechRadar if you can't wait for our hands on: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 review. Especially for the number fans among you.
