Samsung Galaxy Tab 2

Samsung has officially announced their first tablet to launch with Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, the Galaxy Tab 2.

Samsung is expected to first release the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 to the United Kingdom, followed by Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Denmark. Samsung announced that these countries will sell both a Wi-Fi only version and a Wi-Fi + 3G version of the tablet.

The Galaxy Tab 2 will ship with specs somewhat similar to its most immediate predecessor, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. It will be powered by a 1GHz dual-core ARM processor and 1GB of RAM. The 7-inch tablet will feature a 1024 x 600 resolution on a PLS TFT LCD screen, a 3MP rear-facing camera, a VGA front-facing camera, HSPA+ support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS capabilities, a microSD card slot, and a 4,000mAh battery. The device will ship with internal memory of 8, 16, or 32GB.

Samsung has yet to announce if the Galaxy Tab 2 will be released in the U.S. The tablet is geared for a European release for March and is expected to be featured at MWC 2012 in Barcelona later this month. Pricing has been leaked for the Scandinavian countries and customers in Finland are expected to pay €349 (about $463) for the Wi-Fi only version and €429 (about $568) for the Wi-Fi + 3G version.
