Deliberate step-down

The main thing you need to know about the Tab 2 7.0 is that it's deliberately more, shall we say, humble, than the 7.0 Tab Plus. For instance, there's a 1GHz processor rather than a 1.2GHz processor.

Cheaper price tag

There's a reason for the stepped-down specs, and one of the reasons is the $250 price tag, which competes with the $200 Kindle Fire.
