Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 review
In order to make the Samsung Tab 2 up to the prevailing competition in the mobile tablet devices market place, Samsung has given it a massive 10.1 inches wide touchscreen that will make it possible for the tablet device to display at the 1280 x 800 pixels resolution. And the operating system running it will be the Android 3.0 version Gingerbread Honeycomb.
And powering its various affairs will be the dual core Nvidia Tegra 2.1 GHz processor. Samsung has also extended the 10.1 Flash support to this obviously enhanced version of its mobile tablet device. Samsung has also given this tablet device not one but two camera devices. The one at the rear of the tablet will be a fine eight mega pixel snapper and the one at the front a two mega pixel that can be used for video calling, etc.
Users can look forward to watching videos made on the MPEG4/H263/H264 formats. It is also very much possible to play 1080p high definition video. In all likelihood, we will have the upgraded Galaxy Tab 2 in our midst by April, 2011 or so. The network service providers have already started working on finalizing a nice initial set of Samsung Tab 2 contract deals and other Tab 2 deals.
This is a brand new product from Samsung that breaks the $250 price barrier. There are a lot of tablets at or below this price but they are mostly very low end devices with slow CPUs, poor screens and built for non-US markets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 makes none of the compromises typical of this price point and provides the same kind of performance you’d expect from the rest of the Samsung Galaxy Tab portfolio. It’s fast, slick, has a great screen and even has Android 4.03 (Ice Cream Sandwich). I do like the new operating system and adapted to it in minutes. In addition to front & rear cameras there is bluetooth and even an IR blaster so you can use it as a remote for your TV. It only took a minute to set that up and get a program guide downloaded. All the apps on my Gingerbread phone loaded up to the Tab and run fine on the ICS platform. I can’t comment on battery life yet as I plugged it for the initial charge and setup and haven’t run on battery yet. As far as WiFi reception goes, it picks up all the same signals at the same strength as my laptop so no problem there.
