Both variants of Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 released in Canada
As consumers and fans of mobile tech we are spoilt for choice when choosing new hardware with both the smartphone and tablet markets getting larger by the day, and we now have news for our readers in Canada as both variants of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 have been released in the country.
It is being reported by Tech Shout that both versions of the Galaxy Tab 2 are available now at select retailers in the country, and all consumers need to do is choose between the seven inch model and the ten inch version. The two models both carry similar specifications to each other except obviously the screen size, battery, and memory.
The smaller of the two models offers users 8GB of on board storage while the bigger of the two features 16GB of built in memory. Both versions have a WXGA touchscreen that is protected by Gorilla Glass that is home to the Samsungs TouchWiz Android overlay. The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is powered by a 7,000 mAh battery unit, while the seven inch version uses a 4,000 mAh power plant.
Both units come with the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system straight out of the box, which is powered by a dual core processor clocked at 1GHz. Camera wise the two models feature a three megapixel shooter on the back that is capable of Full HD video capture, while around the front is a VGA unit.
There is the option to expand both units memory by up to an extra 32GB courtesy of the microSD card slot, and connectivity wise owners are treated to Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n, and Wi-Fi Direct. The seven inch version may be more expensive than the upcoming Google Nexus 7 device, but at least you have the option of expanding storage thanks to the microSD card port.
It is not known if the country will be seeing the 3G versions of the Galaxy Tab 2 anytime in the future though, but these Wi-Fi only versions are priced at $249 and $349.
