Samsung has outed their latest Galaxy device and successor to the Galaxy Tab. Known as the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0), the latest model still features the 7-inch display screen like its predecessor.
The new device is expected to go on sale within the United Kingdom in March and from there, it will make its way to other global markets including the United States though no firm time lines have been announced. For features, Samsung’s newest tablet supports both WiFi and 3G network connectivity and is powered by a 1GHz dual core CPU. Running on the Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, the device will make use of a variety of different Hub services to meet customer needs. These Hubs include a Music Hub, a Video Hub and a Readers Hub. The names of these services are pretty explanatory, but the details require some clarification. The Video Hub will allow Galaxy Tab 2 owners the ability to both buy and rent movies with the Samsung library currently having access to more then 1,000 full length movies. The Reader Hub of course provides access to purchasing electronic books while the Music Hub offers more then 17 million individual music titles to select from.
The Galaxy Tab 2 will also include AllShare Play, a feature that allows digital content to be streamed to the tablet from a variety of different sources including home computers, Samsung mobile phones or cloud storage services.
