Samsung revealed the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) today, which is the follow up to its original 7-inch tablet. It is the first tablet to debut the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The new 7-inch tablet will be packed with a 1-GHz, a dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. It will also feature a beautiful 1024-by-600 LCD display.
In addition it will include dual-facing cameras, with a VGA lens on the front and a 3-megapixel setup on the back. The device will be Bluetooth 3.0-compatible and have HSPA+ connectivity.
Samsung also said that The Galaxy Tab 2 will come in a Wi-Fi and 3G version, and it will roll out worldwide in March, starting in the U.K.
In terms of software, the Galaxy Tab 2 will ship with Samsung Hub services. This will include Samsung Music Hub, “which has a selection of 17 million songs”, Readers Hub, “which offers 2.3 million e-books and thousands of magazines/newspapers”, and also Game Hub “which provides instant access to various game titles”.
Samsung announced that it will also be debuting Video Hub, which is said to have a selection of more than 1,000 movies to rent, as well as a trailers and reviews of a vast majority of films.
The only burden is that Samsung is still dealing with a worldwide legal battle with Apple over patents pertaining to its Galaxy line of devices. Apple has been in disputes with Samsung for just about every smartphone and tablet it has released in the past two years. Apple is claiming the gadgets violate patents held by the Mac maker. Only results are that Samsung has fired back at Apple with similar claims.
The latest development in the seemingly never-ending war happened last week when a Dusseldorf court denied Apple’s request to have the modified Galaxy Tab 10.1N banned in Germany. The original Galaxy Tab 10.1, however, is temporarily banned in the country.
