It looks like Samsung
has just taken the wraps off its latest tablet offerings, with the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) — an ICS-laced follow-up to the company’s original seven-incher
. Available in both 3G and WiFi varieties, this redux doesn’t mark a huge departure from its predecessor, packing a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and a 1024 x 600 LCD. The big changes, however, come in the software department, with the Galaxy Tab 2 shipping with Android 4.0
straight out of the box. Other than that, you’ll find a three-megapixel rear-facing camera, a VGA shooter up front, Bluetooth capabilities, and HSPA+ connectivity. No word yet on pricing or availability, but it’s worth noting that we first saw this announcement hit Samsung’s RSS feed earlier this morning, and it appears to have been pulled since then. It all looks awfully official to us, but when it becomes officially
official, we’ll be sure to update this post accordingly. Until then, be sure to head past the break for a shot of its backside.
Update: Samsung has just issued an official press release for today’s announcement, specifying that the device will launch first in the UK, beginning in March. Price remains a mystery, but you can find more information in the full release, after the break.
