Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 was set to launch at the end of March in UK followed by the global roll-out, but Samsung delayed the launch of both 7.0 and 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 2 stating that Samsung and Google need more time to work on the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android mobile OS. Both tablets will run latest version of Android mobile OS and are Samsung’s first tablet to feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Earlier Samsung disappointed Galaxy Note users by delaying the Ice Cream Sandwich update for Galaxy Note. So far Samsung has released the Ice Cream Sandwich update for Galaxy S II smartphone, that too has not yet reached to all the Galaxy S II users globally. There are other devices, including Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and Galaxy Tab 10.1, that are waiting to get the Android 4.0 update.
A spokesperson at Samsung says that both the tablets will now launch at the end of April. Both the Galaxy Tab 2 tablets have similar hardware specifications of 1GHz dual-core processor, 32GB internal storage, and differs only in screen size and resolution. Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) sports a 7-inch display with resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels while Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) sports a 10.1-inch display with resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.
