Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab 2 Series, a range which includes the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) which was announced recently and a newbie, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1).
Samsung’s second Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich slate, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) has, as you’d expect, a 10.1-inch display. With a resolution of 1280×800 (WXGA) and PLS technology, this promises a super-high pixel count and great viewing angles.
PLS means ‘plane-to-line switching’ and is Samsung’s own take on IPS, ‘in plane switching’, the light-scatter reducing tech present in displays of the Apple iPhone 4S and the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime. PLS is Samsung’s own tech so get used to seeing more Samsung devices featuring this; it’s in the Tab 2 (7.0) and the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 as well.
Other specs and features of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) include a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, Samsung apps such as ChatON, AllShare Play and the usual Music Hub and Readers Hub, full of third-party music and news/ebook services.
Essentially, it’s an enlarged Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0). Samsung will be bringing both of these devices to the UK from March onwards. Keep an eye out for pricing details and availability, coming soon.
