Samsung halts production of Galaxy Tab 2

The newer tablet offering from Samsung is rumored to have stopped production as the company is expected to upgrade its existing 1 GHz dual core processor to a quad core processor.

Samsung has reportedly stopped the production of its upcoming Galaxy tab 2 10.1 for a change in the processor.

Samsung had announced 7 inch and 10.1 inch variants of the Galaxy Tab 2 tablet during the Mobile World congress earlier this year. The tablets, which will feature the latest Google Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, are expected to go on sale in the USA first.

According to Notebooknews.de, the production for the Galaxy tab 2 10.1 tablet has been halted as Samsung is upgrading the 1 GHz dual core processor to a quad core processor which is expected to be in the 1.2 – 1.5 GHz range. Though reason for this sudden change in the strategy has not been reported, it is obvious that improved processor would give the Samsung tablet a clear edge over its competitors.

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 currently features a dual core 1 GHz processor coupled with a 1 GB of DDR 2 RAM for better multitasking and performance. The tablet features the all new PLS (Plane to line switching) technology based display, which allows it to display better colours, contrast and even wider screen viewing angles than the existing IPS technology based displays. The 10.1 inch display features a capacitive touch and a 1204 x 800 pixel native resolution.

The tablet comes with HSPA+, 3G connectivity allowing it to get data download speeds of up to 21 Megabits per second which will come in real handy while accessing social media websites or while sharing content on various websites online. The tablet is powered with the latest Android ICS 4.0 operating system that offers functionality as a tablet while it also can be used as a regular smartphone for communications as well. The tablet features a 3 megapixel rear camera that is capable of video recording in HD 720p resolution while the front VGA camera allows video conferencing and video calling.
