We bet a lot of you here are quite eager to upgrade your Galaxy Tabs’ firmware to Android Ice Cream Sandwich v4.0. In fact, some of you may feel a bit impatient since the update’s release could take a few more months and you will have no other choice but to wait until that time comes. But guess what? Samsung has just announced its newest model of Galaxy Tab. The new tablet will be called as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and will be following the footsteps of the original 7 inch Galaxy Tab.
Specs wise, the new slate will be flaunting its 7 inch PLS TFT LCD Display with 1024 x 600 pixels of full screen resolution. In addition, the tablet will also be equipped with a 1GHz dual core processor that will go alongside with its 3 mega pixel fixed focus rear shooter, front facing VGA camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, A-GPS, 3G HSPA+, micro SD card slot, 4000 mAh battery, Samsung TouchWiz UI with Live Panel, Samsung Apps and Hub support, S suggest, AllShare Play, KIES Air and ChatON. You’ll also be able to choose among the slate’s 8GB, 16GB and 32GB of storage versions. And since the slate is the latest (or shall we say, upgraded?) version of Samsung’s famed line of Galaxy Tabs, it isn’t really that surprising to know that it will be running on Google’s latest Android platform. With Android ICS, you’ll be able to delight yourself with the slate’s new sets of buttons and icons.
As for those who are eyeing to get one, the all-new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 will be made available in the UK this coming March. The tablet will also be released in Norway, Finland, Germany and Sweden. The Wi-Fi + 3G version will be sold for a starting price of $523 while the Wi-Fi only version will be sold for a starting price of $419. We don’t know about you but we do think that the tablet’s price is too expensive. We’d rather wait for that ICS update to be rolled.
