Rumours are flying here and there about the samsung galaxy tab 2.The most hearing rumour is that Samsung will unveil their Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 in MWC (Mobile World Congress).According to some rumour galaxy Tab 2 will be powered by Nvidia Tegra 2 processor for running Android 2.3 Honeycomb OS.
The tablet being talked about is the APAD IMX515 G10 and, if you haven’t yet guessed it right, it has its origin in China. However, this time, it’s not a pure cloning job in that the APAD sports a 10 inch display whereas the original Galaxy Tab is well known with its 7 inch touch screen interface. Everything else though bears a striking similarity with the Galaxy Tab. For instance, there is the same angular and rounded edges, the same layout of the characteristic Android buttons with even the buttons too looking exactly the same with the only exception being that of the home button that sports a different design.
However, the similarities and all the talk of cloning dissipates once you penetrate the skin. For beneath the outer familiar (plasticity) shell reveals an altogether different story. The processor is a less powerful 800MHz Freescale i.MX515 chip mated to a 512MB RAM while on board storage amounts to 4GB. However, there also exists a few similarities as well, like the APAD also runs the Android 2.2 Froyo, while on-screen resolution is also the same at 1024 x 600 pixels. However, the display quality can’t be expected to be the same as the APAD is all of 10 inches in comparison to the Galaxy Tab’s 7 inch display. Price, as is known until now, will be below the $200 dollar mark and will begin shipping in the domestic market before it makes its international foray.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 would be announce at MWC but it will be release in Q2 2011. Signs of a successor had already imagined and in America the price of the Tab has declined in recent days. The Galaxy Tab 2 will be released on various world markets at a price similar to Galaxy Tab 1.
