Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 2 officially announced

Earlier this month, Samsung took the wraps off the Galaxy Tab 2, the true successor to the original Galaxy Tab that started it all. But Samsung isn’t done with the sequels, as the company has officially announced the next version of their popular 10.1-inch Tab model. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 2 is now real, and it’s release is actually right around the corner.

The Tab 10.1 2 features a 10.1-inch display, with a resolution of 1280×800. The device will come in two flavors: a 16GB or 32GB model. The battery inside is pretty big, coming in at 7,000mAh. Under the hood you’ll find a 1GHz dual-core processor, and there’s a 3MP rear-facing camera on the back, complimented by a VGA front-facing shooter. The device will apparently also come with an optional HSPA+ connectivity. It will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 2 will begin its global roll-out in March, with the UK first to get the newest tablet from Samsung. No word on pricing, but considering the launch is next month it shouldn’t be too long before prices become available.
