Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10-inch tablet. Thanks to Samsung we've got it right here to put through the paces and check out the newly refined design and speaker grill placements. It appears Samsung is taking two approaches on tablets. One being a more budget-friendly Tab like the Galaxy Tab 2 7-inch and the 10 we have today, and then their top end will be the quad-core Galaxy Note 10.1 coming this summer. This new slate is clearly a media consumption device, and it works great. Read on for our full review.

Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 hardware is good to go, and you can pre-order one at Office Depot right now. The bad news is that rumor of a delay to implement a quad-core processor has fallen by the wayside: the listing shows the same dual-core hardware that we saw at Mobile World Congress. Bummer.
sweet $250 Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, it's time to start diving into that code. Samsung has just posted the open source code not only for the 7-inch model of the Galaxy Tab 2, but the delayed 10-inch version as well. Of course having the source code will help modders to alter the existing software, but it will also allow them to easily get custom ROMs running on the Android tablets. And we love us some custom ROMs. You can download the source code files here.
Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 at Mobile World Congress, it was met with a resounding yawn. Aside from Ice Cream Sandwich, a MicroSD card slot and a slightly redesigned exterior, it was basically identical to the previous generation. But according to German site NetbookNews, the tablet has been delayed in order to get a more substantial upgrade: a quad-core Exynos processor. That would be a major win for anyone wanting some substantial performance gains over last year's Galaxy Tab 10.1, and may be enough to warrant a second look from those dazzled by the Tegra and Snapdragon processors on other tablets.
Ice Cream Sandwich powered Galaxy Tab 2 10-inch will only be $399 for the base model. Everyone, welcome Samsung to the competitively priced tablet party.
Galaxy Tab 2, both the 7-inch and 10-inch models from Samsung had been delayed until late April. While things still seem to be on track for a late April release we now have a leaked price too. The folks from Engadget spotted the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 2 at Office Depot of all places, showing a price tag of only $399 for the Ice Cream Sandwich tablet.
Galaxy Tab 2, in either its 10.1-inch or 7-inch incarnations. Anyone? Well, if you've just been dying to get your hands on some warmed-over hardware, you'll have to wait a little longer: Samsung said that the international release of both tablets has been delayed slightly. They'll now appear at the end of this month, though specific dates and markets weren't given. Try to contain your disappointment, Android fans.
Galaxy Note 10.1's fancy-pants stylus input, this one may interest you. The Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1-inch version - man, Sammy really needs to work on these names) passed through the hallowed halls of the FCC today. There was never any real doubt that the Galaxy Tab 2 was heading to the US, and will probably be available on one or more carriers as well as a WiFi-only version. That said, this looks like the advance guard international version that manufacturers tend to send through the FCC as a matter of course.
Apple's legal bulldogs.
