Samsung recently launched the second generation version of its Galaxy Tab 2

Samsung recently launched the second generation version of its Galaxy Tab 2  in 10 and 7 inch models. There aren’t any grand changes between this and the previous version of the device and since this version is also available at quite a reasonable price, it can be a good option for people who wanted to have Galaxy brand but couldn’t afford the high price of the original tab. But still there are pretty decent technical specs that you would find in this device. The 10.1 inch version of the device comes with a 1280 x 800 PLS display and is powered by a 1 GHz dual core processor. The processor is not as good as several other high end tablets in the market, but it is certainly great for the price range of this device. Besides, we would have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on this version.
 
But the real charm of price comes into play when we consider the 7 inch model of the device which is available at a price of just $249. At this price, it can be considered a good competitor of Amazon Kindle Fire and is being appreciated by experts and common users.
 
Physical structure of Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is not very slim or attractive, but it has a good gray plastic build that is quite sturdy. There are two stereo speakers on the front surrounding the display and there is a microSD card slot on the top edge along with the 3.5 mm headphone jack. There is no microUSB port on this tablet, but an adapter worth $20 can be purchased separately.
 
From the software side of features, there are a variety of specs available on both 7 and 10 inch models of the tablet. HD video content in various formats such as MPEG4, WMV and DIVX plays perfectly well and the content can also be viewed on a monitor or TV with the help of the HDMI adapter. We have a 3 mega pixel rare end camera and a front facing VGA camera on the tablet which gets the required job done. Other than having access to Android Market, a large range of apps and content is available form Samsung Hub. Price of the 10 inch version of this device is $399 which is very reasonable and much less compared to most other tablets in the market. Bottom line is that although this version of Galaxy Tab is certainly not as efficient as other tablets with Tegra 3 quad core CPUs, the price range in which it is available certainly makes it worth it.
