Samsung Pulls the Wraps Off the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0), Bringing Ice Cream Sandwich

Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) today. This will be a  7" tablet with a GHz Dual Core Processor and Android Ice Cream Sandwich. You also get 1GB of RAM and the option for 8,16,or 32GB of internal storage. The camera is a pitiful 3MP on the back and VGA on the front, but this appears to be a budget tablet with Ice Cream Sandwich, and Ice Cream can offsets a few lackluster specs. Now if only Sammy will price this thing right.

Kindle Fire competitor? I doubt it, but it should be fairly reasonable and gives Samsung their first Ice Cream Sandwich tablet, as none of their tabs have been updated yet.

So my conclusion on this puppy. Last years specs with Ice Cream Sandwich, means it's a win at the right price. Full specs are below. Hit the source to learn more.
