It seems as though Samsung have just announced their first line-up of tablets for 2012, by announcing the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0). Samsung have said that this is the perfect "personal on-the-go device" and will be made in both 3G and Wi-Fi variants. The Galaxy Tab 2 will launch in the U.K. and then globally in March.


JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics has said:

Two years ago, Samsung GALAXY Tab began to offer customers more possibilities on the go. Since then, Samsung has actively enhanced our tablet line-up with several tablets in different sizes. The new GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0) will provide people with delighted multimedia experience and allow efficient communication.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab 2 sports a 1GHz dual-core processor, 7-inch WSVGA PLS TFT display with a resolution of 1024x600, a 3-megapixel rear-facing cam, and VGA front-facer for video calls, HSPA+ connectivity, the usual Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and USB2.0 host is also included. It will come in sizes of 8, 16 and 32GB, with microSD to expand this storage, too. It also sports 1GB of RAM, and a standard Li-on 4,000mAh battery.

This will be Samsung's first Android 4.0-powered tablet, so we should see some good things from it.
