Samsung is announcing a series of gadgets, take it smartphones or tablets across the world in the second quarter of the year. We have already mentioned about the launch of the Galaxy Beam projector phone in India in April. More or less in the same time the company is planning to launch the Galaxy Tab 2 aka Tab 310.
The new tablet in the company's product line has a 7 inch screen and is powered by the Google Android ICS operating system. The tablet was actually showcased and introduced during the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona last month.
The Galaxy Tab 2 has a 1 GHz dual core processor. It has a 1 GB DDR 2 RAM to offer better performance and multitasking capabilities. The Tab 2 has a display based on the new PLS (Plane to Line Switching) technology. This technology helps the screen to display better contrast, colors and wide viewing angles when compared to the displays based on IPS technology.
The 7 inch display of the Galaxy Tab 2 has a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. The tablet has HSPA+ connectivity which is superior to the HSPA + 3G connectivity. This will allow to get download speeds of 21 Mbps that is handy when using social media sites and while sharing content between sites.
The Android ICS operating system powered tablet offers excellent functionality. However, it misses out the regular communication features that were offered by the older 7 inch tablets of Samsung.
The Galaxy Tab 2 or Tab 310 has a 3 MP camera at the rear and a VGA camera at the front for video conferencing. It not only has the normal GPS but also the Russian GLONASS tracking system based on satellite. This is better and accurate as well.
The tablet will be launched in India in April 2012. This will be available in two variants namely 16 GB and 32 GB with Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity options. The price in India of this will be Rs. 23,250 but it is not confirmed.
