Galaxy Tab 2 — 7.0

When you think of low-priced Android powered tablets one thought comes to mind as an immediate success: Amazon Kindle Fire.  Now, Samsung is on board and they have created a 7 inch version of the Galaxy Tab that will go on sale for $249.  However, with this low price point will users pay in the end for a device that will become quickly outdated?  See specs below:

  • 7″ capacitive touchscreen
  • Dual-core 1 GHz processor
  • Android 4.0
  • 8 GB on-board storage

Hopefully this device will cause a stir in the low-end tablet market, the Kindle Fire is an excellent alternative to the iPad but Amazon has almost over-processed their custom version of Android.  Samsung has kept the important features of Android 4.0 present by not over-skinning and this may be a key selling point.

Bottom line:  Android tablets are getting better and with specs at this price point; who can resist?  Although the processor is just 1 GHz except Ice-Cream Sandwich to run smoothly.
