Samsung Announces GALAXY Tab 2 (10.1) at MWC 2012

Samsung Announces GALAXY Tab 2 (10.1) at MWC 2012

This year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC 2012) is set to kick off tomorrow, but even before Samsung start showing off their best products in the show – the official pressers have already been released at least for select devices like its new GALAXY Tab 2 (10.1).
The Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 (10.1) appears to be an update to the first 10-incher Tab, but it looks like the Korean company is lining up this slate to what could be the GALAXY Tab 2 devices. Just over a week ago, Samsung announced the GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0) so I’m inclined to be believe this GALAXY Tab 2 (10.1) belongs to the new lineup, noting Samsung saying “the GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0) is the ideal personal on-the-go device; while the larger GALAXY Tab 2 (10.1) is well-suited for home and family use.”
The Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 (10.1) features a 10-inch display, hence the name, but it got a higher resolution as compared to the 7-inch contender. It’s available in 2 storage options (16 and 32GB) out of the box, but unlike the original GALAXY Tab 10.1 – the GALAXY Tab 2 (10.1) offers expandable storage option through its microSD port, which undoubtedly is an essential feature especially if you get the 16GB version. Another notable features of the GALAXY Tab 2 (10.1) is the quad-band HSPA+ connectivity as well its massive 7000mAh battery.
