Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 with Android 4.0 – Ice Cream Sandwich

Samsung has officially unveiled its seventh Android tablet – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, which is the first to come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from day one.
The Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) will be one of the first tablets available with Ice Cream Sandwich, which has a haltingly beautiful design and tons of new features like facial recognition unlocking that make using Android elegant and fun. The Galaxy Tab 2 will join Samsung’s diverse family of tablets like the Tab 8.9 and 10.1, which compete the best they can against Apple’s iPad, the most popular tablet in the world.

Like the original Galaxy Tab P1000 and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, the Galaxy Tab 2 has a 7 inch display with 1024 x 600 pixels. Measuring 193.7 x 122.4 x 10.5 mm and weighing 344 grams.

One of the big selling points of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will be that it’ll come running Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) straight out of the box come March. The Galaxy Tab 2 we fondled was sometimes laggy to unlock or while booting up the hubs but on the whole, the 1GHz dual-core processor (and 1GB of RAM) coped just fine with Ice Cream Sandwich-flavoured multi-tasking.



Now Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 has three easily accessible hubs – Music Hub, Reader Hub and the new Video hub, to launch you into your digital world. The Video hub has 1000 movie and TV titles to rent or buy and we reckon it’ll easily take on similar entertainment offerings from Sammy’s competitors. Plus the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is one of the first tablets to get in on ‘allshare play’, Samsung’s entertainment-sharing set-up.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2’s 3MP rear facing camera takes surprisingly decent snaps with fairly realistic colours, though we should point out that it’s hard to be an exact judge under the unflattering lights of a convention centre. There’s also a VGA snapper on the front that’s good enough for video calls.

Following are the summary of Samsung Galaxy Tab 2’s features:

* TouchWiz / L!ve Panel UX
* HSPA+ 21Mbps (850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 MHz)
* Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct

* 8 / 16 / 32GB user memory
* microSD (up to 32GB)

Samsung Galaxy Sll (S2)

The Samsung Galaxy S2 is a touchscreen smartphone manufactured by Samsung. This Samsung smartphone is the recent Android superphone to reach market, with 1.2 GHz processor, 1GB RAM combined with Android 2.3. In current era the dual-core race is set to heat up massively over the market, with the HTC Sensation and iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S all set to bring the tech to market too.

The successor to one of the most popular Android handsets to date carries a burden of expectation almost as sizable as its 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen. It is thinner, lighter, and faster than the Galaxy S.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 is almost impossibly thin when you pick it up – dimensions of 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.5mm mean it’s one of the thinnest smartphones on the market at the moment.

The 3.5mm headphone jack lives on the top of the phone, bucking the lower placement on other 4.3-inch screen phones, and the microUSB slot lives on the bottom.

The screen is gorgeous; the colors are really vibrant, the blacks are impenetrable and it offers great viewing angles and improved outdoors visibility. The video quality of the Samsung SII’s 1080p is pretty good.

The internal memory of the phone is 16 GB expandable with a memory card slot that can take up to a microSD card of 32 GB. The allocation of the internal memory gives only 2 GB to applications and the rest will have to go storage.

But no phone is complete without Apps, especially an Android smartphone. Chances are that your telecom operator or Samsung will factory-install a number of most useful apps including the likes of Facebook, Twitter, e-book reader or more

The Galaxy S II’s onscreen keyboard is terrific, allowing us to get up to a fast typing speed within almost no time at all. And browser performance is superb in terms of speed.

The Samsung S2 makes great use of the gyroscope sensor through some nice display options that the phone owners will find great time impressing their friends


The other element of note is the 8.1 MP camera with single LED flash on the rear


The TouchWiz 4.0 integration can also be found in the Settings menu, where the user can:
-Change the overall font used in the device and download additional ones
-Change the lock screen wallpaper
-Change the display type (standard, dynamic and movie)
