Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10-inch and 7-inch - Our Hands-on Review

Samsung's Galaxy Tab line continues to expand, with the latest additions coming in the form of the Galaxy Tab 2 Series. The Galaxy Tab 2 Series is available in 10.1-inch and 7.0-inch screen sizes. While these second-generation models clearly borrow some design cues and other specifications from their predecessors, we were a bit surprised to find out that not a lot has changed from the first-generation models to the new Galaxy Tab 2 series, at least in terms of their internal components.

Although the Galaxy Tab 2 may not offer a lot of new features from its predecessors in the Galaxy Tab lineup, the lower price puts both of these tablets in the mid-range tablet category rather than in the premium category. Given the popularity of tablets and the fact that more people are generally interested in lower cost tablets, rather than a premium price tag, it makes sense that Samsung wants to compete in this space.


We have both the 10.1- and 7.0-inch models in-house for testing. The 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 2 costs $399.99 while the 7.0-inch model runs $249.99. Join us on the pages ahead as we take a closer look at what these tablets have to offer.

Thanks for reaching out on this. Confirming with Samsung and have made temporary edits. Samsung is vague in terms of what they list for specs on the device.

yeah pretty much anywhere you go all it lists is 'dual core processor' which is kind of unfortunate

Android Tablets and Windows 8 tablets will be a good competition to watch out.

Will samsung come out with Windows 8 tablets soon ?

I think I am going with the Galaxy 7". It seems like the best tablet for the price and I have shopped around.

Imho, I wouldn't want a Windows tablet. I don't really like the Windows 7 OS. I have 5 computers and only 1 is running Windows. Android is based on the Linux kernel and I have always had great experiences with both.
