Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Announced At MWC

Samsung showed off a new 10″ Android tablet at a press conference in Barcelona last night.

The Galaxy Tab 2 is based on a 10.1″ (1280 x 800) capacitive screen, and it’s powered by a 1GHz dual-core NVidia Tegra 2 CPU. Just like the new Galaxy S II, it has a pair of camera,  8MP on the rear and 2MP on the front, with 1080p recording and playback. Out of the box, it’ll be running Android OS 3.0 Honeycomb. It will ship with either 16GB or 32 GB Flash storage, as well as the usual Wifi, Bluetooth, accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass.

It has a 4G connection, and Vodaphone has an exclusive on the Tab 2 in Europe. there’s no word yet on who will be the network  provider in the US. Pricing and availability is up in the air, but a release date sometime in March is being  batted around.

P.S. Kobo also inadvertently announced that the Kobo Android app will ship on the Galaxy Tab 2. This was announced in a post on the Kobo blog, but then it was taken down.
