Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) arrives as mild upgrade

updated 02:30 am EST, Sun February 26, 2012

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 mostly brings Android 4

Samsung as one of its last preludes before Mobile World Congress has brought out the Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1). A direct upsizing of the seven-inch version, it shares Android 4.0, the unnamed (likely Tegra 2) dual-core 1GHz processor, three-megapixel back camera, and VGA front camera of the smaller device. Its primary differences are the 1280x800 resolution (carried over from the original 10.1) and a frame more conspicuously meant to avoid treading on Apple's design rights in Germany.

The larger Galaxy Tab 2 continues the options of 16GB and 32GB of storage with a microSDHC slot for more. In 3G versions, it should support 21Mbps HSPA+ both internationally and on the bands used by AT&T and major Canadian carriers.

Samsung expects the refreshed tablet to ship first to the UK, in March, as part of a global rollout. It hasn't set pricing, although the conservative upgrade over the original points to the new version being treated as an economy model rather than the flagship from 2011.

Leaks have suggested Samsung's highlight for Mobile World Congress will be a Galaxy Note 10.1, a pen-enabled and otherwise significantly upgraded parallel to the Tab 2 (10.1). It may carry a 2560x1600 display and the 2GHz Exynos 5250, but might also not ship until later in the spring.

    Umm

    Who said last year was the year of the iPhone 5? Uhh, nobody? It's the iPhone 4S, bro. And maybe you heard it shattered launch records for any phone (and maybe any product) ever?
