Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 pictures: Hands-on at MWC

Hands-on with the Vodafone exclusive Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, complete with 10.1 inch screen and dual core processor. Is it enough to trouble the iPad?

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 might have been made to look like an afterthought during the company’s Mobile World Congress opening press conference but with a strong OS, friendly form factor and a hefty specs sheet the second-generation Samsung tablet is a potential show stealer.

T3 got hands-on with the recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, with its 10.1inch, screeen at the Samsung press conference to bring you the full round-up of its weighty bag of tricks.

Excelling where its predecessor arguably struggled, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 features a beautifully crafted, light weight body that fits comfortably within the hands and weighs noticeably less than its bitter Apple-branded rival.

Touting a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800p display, the second-generation Galaxy Tab offers up crisp on-screen content further enhanced by the 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera capable of Full HD 1080p video recording and a second, 2-megapixel, forward-facing video calling-friendly snapper. Navigation through the device’s content pool is fast and user friendly thanks to the combination of a 1GHz dual-core processor and Google’s upcoming tablet-centric Android 3.0 operating system, Honeycomb.

First impressions of the Galaxy Tab 2 are wholly positive. Combating the aesthetic drawbacks of the original Galaxy Tab the 2 is a visually and mechanically attractive device that, thanks to its larger size and higher-end specs, will be one of the first true iPad competitors, assuming Samsung can get its pricing right.
