We’ve just had the opportunity to test the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, a device that was sent to us by one of our readers. We’re dealing here with the latest Samsung 10.1 inch tablet, that runs Android 4.0.3 and sports an original design, using all the knowledge achieved in the battle against Apple in court.
The device goes for as low as $400 on Amazon, in the WiFi only version. We’re testing the 16GB 3G + WiFi unit, so our Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has a SIM slot, not only a microSD one. The slate supports a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, it comes in 16/32GB flavors, with 1GB of RAM and it weighs less than 600 grams. It has the speakers situated on the sides next to the screen, an approach taken to avoid Apple lawyers, among others. This device incorporates a 3.15 MP camera at the back, without flash and relies on a dual core 1 GHz processor for the heavy work.
Its battery is a 7000 mAh unit and as you can see in the preview video, inside the box of the slate you’ll find the charger, USB cable and the usual manuals. The tablet feels pretty light and sturdy thanks to the metallic part of the case. Its display is also very crisp and colors are vivid. More about that will be available in the full review, that’s coming in a couple of days.
