Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Arrives On Optus

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 — the follow-up album to the controversial Galaxy Tab 10.1 — is now available from Optus.

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 carries a (surprise, surprise) 10.1-inch screen complete with a 1280x800 pixel resolution, 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage expandable with a microSD card.

You'll be able to score yourself a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for an extra $20 on any of the carriers' mobile data plans, meaning that a 2GB data allowance for $19.95 per month, plus the tablet for example, would set you back $39.95 per month on a 24 month contract.

Allowances go from 2GB per month, right through to 20GB per month, with the tablet costing an extra $20 on all tiers.

    i just went to the optus website and was unable to see the tablet

    I thought Samsung where going to withdraw from the Tablet Market.

    Nup. Samsung are here for the long haul - infact they're releasing a quad core Exynos 10.1 tab very soon!

    doesn't seem like much of step up from the first one.

    This is a little disappointing. It should really be running the Tegra 3. The Galaxy Series is meant to be their starting line up and they've created a flagship tablet that is already dated. The Transformer Prime has even been out for months with better spec's.

    It's like buying a new car with a second hand engine.

    This is a damned if you do, damned if you don't sort of proposition. You get the benefit of a pretty decent tablet... charged over 24 months (Sorry OPTUS assumption there). Invariably it will be bettered quickly in the tablet market, however, in the first couple of months of use (about the $40 mark) you have it personalised and optimised for you. So for about $40-60 bucks you have your, very close to ideal, tablet setup. You have a decent data data allowance and some interchangeable storage for the really necessary stuff. After a couple of years (again an OPTUS assumption) you get a new tablet... The old one goes to the relos or the kids... Not super expensive long term?.. Tough one!

    Yer.. I simply do not want a 3G/4G tablet... but it seems fairly reasonable pricing.

    1280 x 800??? the number 1 manufacturer of screens and they cant beat Apple?? Screw this I'm jumping ship.
