US Launch Date and Pricing Info Outed for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 [Pre-order now]
Heads up, my fellow Americanos! If you’re keeping an eye out for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, your wait for the device’s arrival is all but over. Sammy dropped a press release earlier this afternoon stating that the tablet would be available in the United States on May 13th — that’s tomorrow for those of you who easily lose track of says, like me — and will start at $399 for a 16GB and WiFi model.
Don’t get all hot and bothered on us just yet though, as there’s no real upgrade in specs from the OG Galaxy Tab 10.1 in this new version. Same skinny design and a dual-core chip, but this one comes rocking Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. Woo hoo, right?
Also included in the same press release was the announcement of the US launch of their new Galaxy Player 4.2 which will sell for $200. Double woo hoo.
If, for some reason, you don’t already have a tablet or you’re just looking to pick up another device, here’s a link you can use to pre-order one from Amazon.
