Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7″ Unboxing

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7″ has landed in the office, and we are now working on the full review, but in the meantime, here is a photo gallery to show what the device looks like, fresh out of the box. When we played with the Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1 and 7.0) at Mobile World Congress, it was clear that the suffix “2” wasn’t meant as a technological leap. Instead, Samsung has worked on improving the user experience and making the tablets for affordable to all.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7″ is a good example: after looking at how people use their tablets (from the couch), the company has decided to integrate an Infra-Red module that can turn it into a universal remote control. They have also pre-loaded Peel, which is a great remote control software for Android. It also comes with the latest Android 4.0.

In terms of design, it is a hair thicker than the higher-end 7″ tablet with the AMOLED display, but I suspect that most people won’t notice. The screen resolution is only 1024×600, which is the most noticeable difference with high-end products, along with the 8GB of internal storage (there’s an empty microSD slot too).

However, with a price of $250, this is a real contender for the casual users, and frankly, I don’t see any reason to buy the Kindle Fire which is inferior in just about every way. This tablet will be available on April 22. Stay tuned for the review!
