BARCELONA, Spain--There are no secrets with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 , the successor to the original 7-inch tablet family that Samsung unveiled last year. This Mobile World Congress brings not only a 7-inch version of the Tab 2, but an update to today's 10.1-inch model as well.

Both tablet sizes will feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 1GHz dual-core processor, and two cameras, in addition to the usual scoop of Samsung's apps and hubs. While 3G-capable, there will also be Wi-Fi-only versions.

Samsung will launch the Galaxy Tab 2 series in March, beginning with the UK. We don't have U.S. pricing or release date information yet, but our team on the ground will get plenty of hands-on time with the device once Mobile World Congress officially begins on Monday.

We're also looking forward to trying our hand with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 , a tablet that includes the S-Pen stylus and stylus SDK of the smaller Samsung Galaxy Note, a jumbo-size smartphone with a 5.3-inch screen that some people are calling a "phablet."
