Earlier last month we’ve reported that the release date of both the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and 10.1 might’ve been pushed back. Soon after that we’ve looked at the possibility that the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 might be delayed even more due to a possible revamp of the device (quad core CPU instead of the announced dual-core one, according to rumors).
As it turns out, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has not undergone any modifications and the tablet will not sport a quad-core processor after all.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) Release Date
On the other hand, the good news for those of you interested in purchasing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is that the tablet will finally be available for purchase in Office Depot retail stores in a matter of days, starting May 13 to be more precise. Join us after the break for more.
Besides the May 13 launch day at Office Depot you might be interested to learn that you can already pre-order the 16 GB Wi-Fi version from the official Office Depot website, at the price of $399, or from Amazon.com for the same price.
What you’ll get for your money is a 10.1 inch tablet sporting a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 10.1 inch Super PLS LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, a 3 MP camera on the back, VGA camera on the front and Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
The biggest question however is, would you really want to buy one? Truth of the matter is, for the same amount of money you can buy a 32 GB Asus Transformer Pad 300 sporting a quad-core 1.2 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 10.10 inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
Furthermore, let’s not forget that you can fit an Asus Transformer Pad 300 on top of a keyboard dock which will not only transform your tablet into a notebook, but will also expand the battery life, so the question remains. Why would one buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 instead of a Transformer Pad 300. Beats me, but if you’re a Tab 2 fan feel free to share your thoughts with us.
