Samsung launched the 10.1 inch Galaxy Tablet 2 at the 2011 Mobile World Congress. With the launch of this device, Apple’s iPad now has something to worry about.
Galaxy Tab 10.1 is based on Google’s latest, and recently launched tablet PC operating environment called Android 3 or Honeycomb. With the adoption of the latest OS, this new tablet gets better Flash support, full HTML web rendering capabilities, better power management, and a neater user interface.
Another welcome inclusion is the adoption of Nvidia’s dual core Tegra 2 Processor clocked at 1 GHz, and DDR2 based RAM. The device is HSPA+ capable so users will get up to 21 Mbps download speeds depending on the operator. This device is aimed to offer better graphics and gaming experiences, and for that it also has a gyroscope and an accelerometer.
For multimedia, other than the 10.1 inch screen, Galaxy Tab features stereo speakers and full HD 1080p playback at 30 frames per second, which can also be played on a big screen TV with the help of HDMI out port. As compared to the previous version of Galaxy Tab, the new Galaxy Tab 10.1 features a bigger 6860 mAh battery and comes in 32 GB and 64 GB variants.
Although there is no information about the price and availability of the device, the company has tied up with Vodafone to deliver services and data connectivity. So, sooner or later users will be able to buy these devices from Vodafone and Samsung stores in more than 20 countries.
