Verizon is now carrying the latest 7″ tablet from Samsung – namely, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. You will be able to pick it up from stores a couple of days from now, where this particular tablet allows you to access Verizon’s 4G LTE network for speedy online connections no matter where you are, as long as there is a relevant signal, of course. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) will merge both power and portability in a single device, where it has Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system of choice, in addition to pre-loaded multimedia-rich apps such as Netflix and Samsung’s Media Hub that delivers decent portable entertainment action wherever you are.
Love reading e-books? That is not a problem with the Amazon Kindle app that allows you to “carry” your favorite electronic tomes with you wherever you go, while the Peel Smart Remote app would transform your spanking new tablet into a universal remote right there and then on the spot. Thanks to the Galaxy Tab 2 being a SAFE (Samsung Approved For Enterprise) device that boasts of on-device AES-256 bit encryption, your corporate and personal data in there have an added layer of protection.
Other hardware specifications include a 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera and VGA front-facing camera, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, support for many video file formats such as DivX and XviD support, Wi-Fi connectivity, 8GB of internal memory, and a microSD memory card slot among others. Expect to fork out $349.99 for one of these puppies when it arrives this Friday. [Press Release]
