Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 release dates and pricing leak


Samsung’s latest addition to the Galaxy Tab series, the Galaxy Tab 2.0, which was unveiled at MWC in February has just seen its release date and pricing data leak out.┬áPre-orders for the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2 are due to begin later today, with the device itself going on sale next Sunday, April 22. At $250, the 7-incher’s price is competitive, and for your money you’ll get Android 4.0 with TouchWiz on a 1024×600 PLS TFT display (to keep costs low I suppose). Internally it’s powered by a stable but unimpressive 1GHz dual-core CPU, with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

The 10.1-inch Tab 2 will appear three weeks later on May 13, with pre-orders starting May 4. Prices start at $450 for the 16GB version, and internals are the similar to the 7-inch variant, with the only differences being the aforementioned 16GB of storage and a bump in screen resolution, up to 1280×800.

Since the 10.1 takes a higher fee, the 7-inch tablet is seen as a direct competitor with the Google-branded ASUS tablet that is due to arrive sometime in July.
