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. Pre-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.
