Samsung Galaxy Tab 2
Samsung introduced in February its first-ever tablet PC to run Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, the Galaxy Tab 2.
Like its predecessor, the first-generation Galaxy Tab, the Galaxy Tab 2 comes in a 10.1-inch or 7-inch model, both of which run a 1GHz dual-core processor. The larger Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is bulkier than its 7-inch counterpart, weighing in at 1.28 pounds, but also has a higher-resolution 1,280 x 800 display. The 7-inch model weighs in at 0.76 pounds, but has a lower 1,024 x 600 pixel count.
The Galaxy Tab 2 is teed up to become one of the largest rivals to the iPad this year, especially after a U.S. judge banned sales of the first-generation Galaxy Tab, ruling that it infringed on several design patents used for Apple's popular tablet.
