Prices revealed for new Samsung Galaxy Tabs

Prices revealed for new Samsung Galaxy TabsThere are now an estimated 3,472 different Samsung Galaxy Tabs, and the latest two are the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Stupidest names ever?

The prices for both have been revealed, and, well, they make for interesting reading.

Starting with the little guy, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will weigh in at $250. That’s 50 bucks more expensive than the ludicrously popular Amazon Kindle Fire, though Samsung’s offering boasts unrestricted access to the full Android Market (or ‘Google Play’, if you prefer).

As for the big fella, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will set you back $450, which – crucially – is 49 bucks less expensive than the new iPad, but $51 more than the iPad 2.

Shared specs for the Samsung Galaxy Tabs include Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), a dual-core 1GHz processor, a 3MP rear camera with VGA action on the front, 16GB internal storage and a microSD slot.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has a resolution of 1280 x 800, while the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has a 1024 x 600 layout.

I know the iPad isn’t perfect, but why anyone would opt for an Android tablet is beyond me. Am I being intentionally provocative? Yes. Yes I am.

Would've been more interesting if they'd upped the resolutions a touch, seems weird that they are fitting slower processors in tablets than phones too.

Seems very fishy to me $450 for a duel core 1ghz? with 3mp camera
very low end

1.5ghz and 8MP seems more like it

why anyone would opt for a walled garden os is also beyond me..

Might sound more like it, 7" definitely not got that at least

Sound like rather nice downgrades from the previous ones, on plus side got expandable memory and erm, erm, erm...

Hold on - I am agreeing with Lewis Curdie. Which puts me in a league with people who join FaceBook to campaign for net privacy - but hey :p

If you want a tab, buy a pad.
Also, hey, those new Samsung tabs will be more expensive over here.

Or, buy a Lumia 900 instead. It doesn't have those meddlesome multi-cores, and according to Stephen Elop it can make phonecalls - though nobody's tried that in the wild, yet.

(I was kidding, of course. I often agree with LC)

Every time he does a game review he makes it less appealing.

Ironically the new ones might push the prices of the older and better if not expandable ones down.
