ticket gadget announcements. Welcome 2012 and it’s time to tab 2 series which would be available in both 7 inch version and 10.1 version. Few days back the word on the 7″ was out and now comes the 10.1″ spec sheet.

Difference between the current Galaxy tab and Galaxy Tab 2 series (10.1 and 7)
So what is new? Good question! While the hardware might not be a sizzler there are very few noticeable additions.
Enter the microSD slot: One of the big grouse that people had earlier was lack of microSD support, with the galaxy tab 2 series, Samsung ports in an expandable upto 32 GB microSD slot.
And yes, it would come pre-installed with the latest flavor of the Android, the Ice Cream Sandwich.
Along with GPS, now the galaxy Tab 2 also supports Russia’s Glonass. So don’t like Uncle Sam’s GPS? You got an alternate now on your tab.
And yes, the front camera has dwindled to a VGA from the earlier 2MB.
Though it now enables you to shoot a full HD video recording now from the previous 720 p.
