Samsung has just announced the pricing and release date for its Galaxy Tab 2 Android ICS tablets.
Customers can pre-order the 7-inch version of the Galaxy Tab 2 today for $249.99 and have one in time for release on April 22. If you’re looking for a larger tablet, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will be available for pre-order on May 4 and will be on store shelves on May 13. The 10.1-inch model will cost $399.99.
The Galaxy Tab 2 will ship with specs somewhat similar to its most immediate predecessor, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. If anything, the Galaxy Tab 2 will have modest upgrades, at best. However, one of the biggest features is that the slate will include is Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS (4.0).
When released, both versions will be powered by a 1GHz dual-core ARM processor, will have 1GB of RAM, and will ship with an internal memory space of 8, 16, or 32GB. They will also feature a 3MP rear-facing camera, a VGA front-facing camera, HSPA+ support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS capabilities, and a microSD card slot.
The 7-inch model will feature a 1024 x 600 resolution on a PLS TFT LCD screen. Its larger cousin will feature a 10.1-inch HD display with a 1280 x 800 resolution. It will also feature front-facing speakers and an HDMI-out port, suitable for viewing media on a much larger screen.
Earlier this week, we reported that a leaked image taken from QVC.com showed that the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 would be sold for $309.96.
