A few days ago we reported that Samsung had announced the Galaxy Tab 2, the successor to Samsung’s original 7” Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab. At that time of reporting, it was revealed that the Galaxy Tab 2 would be making its way to Europe first with no word on when we can expect to see it stateside, but thanks to the FCC, we now know that the Galaxy Tab 2 has been recently approved for stateside consumption, although at the moment a release date is still somewhat sketchy.

The FCC approval also confirmed a Broadcom radio with 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. For those who might have missed the news or who might have forgotten, the Galaxy Tab 2 will be the latest to Samsung’s lineup of Android tablets and will sport a 7” display along with a 1GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, a 3MP rear-facing camera, a VGA front-facing camera and will be available in either 16GB or 32GB storage capacities, featuring a 4,000mAh battery and will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich preinstalled.

Like we said earlier, a release date for the US is unknown at this point in time, but on the bright side, the FCC approval is just another step closer for if and when Samsung decides to release the Galaxy Tab 2 in the US.
