Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 arrives a day early (from MWC 2012)

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 arrives a day early (from MWC 2012)We know Samsung isn't launching the Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress this year, and now we also know it's not launching the second-generation Galaxy Tab 10.1 either.

That's because it's spilled the beans the day before, detailing a new slate that puts Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right at the top of its bag of tricks.

In fact, in terms of new features it has the limelight pretty much all to itself. Just like with the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, which was announced a couple of weeks ago, Samsung has kept the baseline spec pretty much the same, leaving it to Google's OS to deliver the new tablet feeling.

In fact, one of the very few changes you do get is actually a negative point, as Samsung's tablet has put on an extra 1.1mm on the waistline to come in at 9.7mm thick.

Beyond that, it's the same dual-core 1GHz processor, 1280 x 800 display and 3.15-megapixel camera as before, which perhaps suggests why the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has been announced before MWC kicks off: it probably wouldn't get much airtime during the show itself.

Samsung assures us its tablet reboot will be snuggling up next to its tablet rivals on the shelves as soon as next month, and given the lack of cutting-edge new features we're hopeful that it'll at least be priced aggressively.
