Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review

IMAG0564 The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is the successor to the original Galaxy Tab and it shows clearly in styling. It  has a front-facing camera with VGA resolution, a dual-core TI OMAP processor powering it is clocked at a lower 1GHz. Still, the 1024 x 600 TFT LCD display remains intact, as does the 3-megapixel rear camera, microSD slot and IR blaster. The Samsung galaxy Tab 2 7.0 measures in at 10.5mm versus 9.96mm. Still, despite that extra padding it weighs the same as its older sibling: 345 grams, or about 0.76 pounds. Running Android 4.0 with TouchWiz overlay( Not TouchWiz Nature UX)

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, is a device I think is well priced for what it offers. It runs smoothly and it is the most cost effective Android 4.0 ICS tablet on the market at $250. Samsung has uniquely positioned this against the Kindle fire which goes for $200 and is the lead Android Tablet on the market. For my money and take I would recommend the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. Its running android 4.0 and it does it very smoothly, with no hiccups, you have got a decent camera and can web chat. Though its only $50 more than the Kindle fire., the Samsung Galaxy Tab at that price offers more in terms of full Google PlayStore access, IR blaster functionality which works tremendously well and easy to use.  Hopefully Samsung can market this well to make a dent into Amazon’s kindle Fire market hold.  Looking for a budget Android tablet running ICS, The galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is the way to go.
