Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 review: Dual-core in a quad-core world
The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 launches with ICS and a dual-core processor for $400. A couple months ago this would have made an appealing package for Android tablet shoppers. Now, not so much.
Unfortunately, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 feels almost like a disappointing prequel, rather than a full-fledged "we've improved on every feature!" sequel.
I mean, when a premium tablet gets a follow-up, it's not a crazy thing to expect a lot from said follow-up; however, Samsung went the "budget" route with the Tab 2 10.1, limiting its advances. The problem is, since the Tab 2's announcement, two Tegra 3 tablets (from Asus and ) have been released at very similar (or in Asus' case, lower) prices than Samsung's offering.
Still, the Tab 2 10.1 includes an IR blaster, its unique TouchWiz UX interface, and comes with 50GB of free Dropbox storage for a year.
Check out the full review to see whether that's enough to be worthy of your consideration.
