The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is 1mm thicker and 14 grams / 0.49 oz lighter than its predecessor the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 that was introduced last year during Google I/O. The 10-inch Tab second generation features a more elegant design with a nice Titanium Silver color on its backside and new front facing speakers.
In the United States, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes in WiFi only with 16GB of built-in storage capacity expandable to 32GB via a microSD card slot. We assumethat there might be an international 3G model somewhere, since the official specification page mention a different weight for the 3G model.
The most noticeable new feature is the lower price, at $399.99 for a 16GB (exp. to 32GbB) WiFi only model , the new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is highly competitive in a space where most of the other latest similar tablets cost at least one hundred dollars more. If we compare the pricing to 32 GB models, knowing that you can get a microSD card for about $25, we can consider that the Tab 2 could save you about $175.
Storage capacity is a big deal when it comes to tablets: their primary function is content and entertainment consumption, specifically watching movies during long trips. HD movies are memory hungry, thus, being able to purchase a high quality 10-inch tablet with 32 GB storage capacity at a reasonable price is the most appealing feature.
Pricing is not everything, so we need to check if the performance and the user experience are comparable to the latest and the best tablets on the market.
