Samsung recently revealed the price tag and the release date of its upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 devices. The price tag and the release dates for the upcoming devices were revealed by the company during a media event that was held in San Francisco recently.
The two versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 devices were introduced during the recent Mobile World Congress last February although this will be the first time the devices will be officially unveiled in the United States.
The 8GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will have a price tag of $250 and is set to be released by April 22. On the other hand the 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is priced at $400 and will be released on May 13.
The $250 price tag of the smaller version of the device will likely allow it to compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire especially with the features that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 offers to consumers at a competitive price tag. The main enhancement that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 devices will offer users is the use of the Android 4.0 operating system which provides a number of improvements to the older version of the OS. The latest Android OS version offers better usability, enhanced graphics and enhancements on its multi-tasking features.
The upcoming devices will be Wi-Fi only models and will feature a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM. The two Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 devices also offer full HD video capabilities while the screen resolution of the 7.0 and 10.1 models are 1024 x 600 and 1280 x 800 respectively.
The two Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 devices also come with a VGA camera in front and 3MP camera at the back. The two devices are touted to be more affordable compared to its predecessors, which were released into the market last year.
