Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7 Inch Slate Runs Android 4.0

Samsung has released its latest Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Built around a 7-inch 1024 x 600 PLS LCD display, this new slate runs on a 1GHz dual-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM, along with WiFi and a 3-megapixel rear facing camera.

While some say that this is a budget model, it’s targeting the entry-level in Samsung’s expansive tablet line-up. The main camera is fixed-focus,but has no LED flash, while the front-facing camera  is VGA instead the more typical 1.3-megapixel or above. It’s also 10.5mm thick, but still chubbier than other Samsung tablets.

That comparative heft is used to accommodate WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS and, most likely, HSPA+ connectivity. There’s also either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, plus expansion via microSD card slot. A 4,000 mAh battery rounds things out, though Samsung isn’t any estimated running time.

OS of choice is Android 4.0, making this slate the first to come preloaded with ICS, it seems. It also comes with TouchWiz modifications, various content hubs, ChatON IM app, KIES Air and DLNA support. Pricing is unconfirmed, but it may be retailed for  $450.
