“We have actively worked to enhance and extend our tablet offering since the launch of the original Galaxy Tab 18 months ago,” said Simon Stanford, Samsung’s UK and Ireland Telecommunication sand Networks Division head.

He added that Samsung is now in the position “of being able to offer our customers a portfolio of devices of varying sizes relative to their different needs. We are delighted to be offering our customers even more choice with our latest tablet which is our first to feature Android 4.0.”
