Samsung has released the new 7 inch Galaxy Tab 2 in South Africa. The new Tab comes equipped with 21Mbps HSPA+ 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity radios and runs Android 4.0 (ICS). A Wi-Fi only version will also be made available for those who do not want to remain connected while on the move. In addition to Google’s usual software suit, the Tab also comes with Samsung Music Hub, Readers Hub, Game Hub and the new Video Hub that offers over 1000 film titles for rent.
While the Music hub will come pre-installed on the Samsung tablet, it will not work in South Africa right now. Samsung South Africa has promised to introduce this service by the time it makes it to the market. The tablet will be released in Q2 2012. Here are its specs:
