TechSpot: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review

Until Amazon's Kindle Fire hit the market late last year, no Android-powered tablet had made even a small impact on the marketplace. With its $200 price tag and customized user interface, the Kindle Fire was a real success. Samsung is now aiming to grab a significant piece of that success by building its own low-cost Android tablet. The catch is that Samsung's new entry, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, looks anything but low-cost.

In fact, it features a much better spec sheet than the Kindle Fire, and uses the same streamlined body design as its more expensive brethren. From a hardware perspective, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 looks much like any other recent Samsung tablet. This particular model features a black front with a titanium silver rear cover, and it feels very nice in your hands. There's a lot to be said for the 7-inch tablet form factor.

With a price of $250 for the Wi-Fi-only model, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is an instant best buy. And when you consider that it is one of the few devices on the market that ships with Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system from the get-go, it's even more of a steal.

Looks good but damn I hate proprietary connections, I just don't get why these companies continue to do this, especially for a simple USB connection.

That's a nice price. Apple will have to release a smaller version or risk being priced out of the market.

Not at all. People will gladly pay the higher price for a bigger screen of magnitudes better quality, and no lag. A small tablet like that is hardly usable for anything productive. It's just too small.

That's an instant buy. But currency mark-up for Indian markets is just too much. Just saw it for $400 (Rs. 21000) at a retail store here.

They always release products with double price in India.
