Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 has the same 7-inch form factor as that of the Kindle Fire- whose success Samsung intends to emulate with the $250 offering having more features like rear and front cameras, expandable memory and a complete Android experience.
Difference from Kindle Fire
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is not ready to let go of the low-end slate market. Moreover, it emerges as a low cost Android tablet with few limitations, as opposed to the Kindle Fire or Barnes & Noble Nook. The $199 Kindle Fire gadgets have been selling like hot cakes. However, something makes you against the slate- the full version of Android store is not accessible except the Amazon AppStore, memory of 8 GB is not expandable, and there are no dual cameras. The important thing about the Fire is that whatever little it does it gives the best at such a small price.
What to Expect
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 has remarkably few limitations- this Android 4.0 tablet has two cameras, GPS navigation, and dual core processor and can even run third party apps from Google Play. Will the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.7.0 provide the full experience satisfactorily? We will know it after April 22.
