Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Now In 10.1-Inch Flavour

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Samsung's just added a 10.1-inch size Tab 2 alongside the 7-incher, which was announced just the other day. The lager model features Ice Cream Sandwich and a 1GHz dual-core processor, but weirdly, is actually fatter and heavier than the original 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab.

The 10.1-inch screen is a 1280x800 WXGA affair, and bolted to the front of it is a VGA camera for video calls, though a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera lurks 'round the back. A battery of 7000mAh should keep you powered-up nicely through the day, though we would've liked to have seen more onboard storage than the 16 and 32GB options available. But hey, at least there's a microSD card slot.

Weighing in at 588g, it measures 256.6mm x 175.3mm x 9.7mm, which is noticeably heavier and fatter than the original Galaxy Tab 10.1-inch model, which weighed 565g and measured 256.7mm x 175.3mm x 8.6mm.
