There 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.
