Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) unveiled; definitely not the HD tablet we’re waiting for

MWC

Samsung on Sunday unveiled the Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and it’s definitely not the high-definition tablet we’ve been waiting for ever since BGR revealed the device in December. The new 10-inch tablet leaked last night and now the underwhelming details are official. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) features a 1GHz dual-core processor, a WXGA 1,280 x 800-pixel PLS TFT display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Samsung’s TouchWiz UI, a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, a front-facing VGA camera (a downgrade from the original Galaxy Tab 10.1’s 2-megapixel secondary camera), 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and a 7,000 mAh battery. In summation it’s a Galaxy Tab 10.1 with Ice Cream Sandwich and a slightly modified case. No launch details were provided. Samsung’s press release detailing the sort-of-new tablet alongside the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) follows below, but don’t despair — the Galaxy Note 10.1 is still incoming and we have a feeling this will be the HD slate we’ve been waiting for.
