Unveiled by Samsung in February at MWC 2012, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 was confusingly launched alongside the Galaxy cảnh báo 10.1 which sported a similar, if slightly more premium, look and a S-Pen stylus, something the former does not have.

However unlike its blockbuster predecessor, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is only available with 16GB of internal storage & Wi-Fi only, and launch at a £299 price tariff. However the cost has taken a tumble & you"re now able lớn pick it up for under £240 in a few outlets.

The lack of a 3G mã sản phẩm in the UK and larger storage capacities means that the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 isn"t as much of a contender khổng lồ the new máy tính bảng ipad as the original was to lớn the máy tính bảng ipad 2, with the middle khổng lồ high over of the market more suited khổng lồ its price.

Where does this leave the Tab 2 10.1 one then? Well, rubbing shoulders with the likes of the Toshiba AT200, ipad tablet 2, asus Transformer Pad 300 and Acer Iconia Tab A200.

Take one look at the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 và you"ll notice immediately that it"s undergone a dramatic redesign from the original Galaxy Tab, as Samsung looks khổng lồ distance its devices from Apple"s iconic ipad tablet – something which has landed the South Korean company in trouble before and seen the Galaxy Tab 10.1 taken off the shelves in some countries.

The result: a two-toned black and grey tablet with what can only be described as ears – which are actually two speakers either side of the 1280 x 800 LCD display.

The large đen bezel around the screen is further increased by the additional grey plastic chassis wrapping round from the back, providing some unnecessary bulk và little kiến thiết flair, something other tablets lượt thích the uniquely shaped Sony Tablet S manage lớn bring to the table.

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 isn"t huge, with its 9.7mm deep toàn thân meaning it"s actually a shade slimmer than the Transformer Pad 300 và Iconia Tab A200, although it does feel porkier than the ipad 2 (8.8mm) và super-slim AT200, which clocks in at a mere 7.7mm.

The unassuming lighter grey plastic back of the Tab 2 10.1 leaves little khổng lồ be desired in the style department, giving off the air of cheapness. However the tablet does feel strong và well built, with no flex experienced with the case or screen.

Thanks to lớn the plastic build, Samsung has managed khổng lồ keep the weight of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 at a reasonable level, with the slate tipping the scales at 587g, making it lighter than its Acer, ipad tablet and asus rivals, but once again the dinky Toshiba steals in at 558g.
