Samsung vs. Apple

So a teaser video on YouTube has been put up showing off the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2’s specs and features and comparing it to the iPad 2, there seems to be strong competition.

The Galaxy Tab 2 will still have a 7 inch display but this time, the resolution will be 2048×1200.  The device is also said to support a 3D display and it will be run on NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor.

The tablet will come installed with Android 2.3 but the user will have the option to upgrade it to Android 2.3, also known as Honeycomb.  Besides this, it will have 1GB of RAM along with a whopping 64GB of internal storage. As a big upgrade from the first Galaxy Tab, the new tablet will have a 8MP rear camera as well as a 3MP front facing camera (the first tablet had a 1.3 MP front facing camera).  Huge advantage over the iPad 2 here as it has been said that the iPad 2 will have only a 1MP rear camera and a 0.3MP front facing camera (didn’t know anything went that low).

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 looks to be a huge competitor towards not only the iPad 2 but also other tablets coming out soon such as RIM’s PlayBook.
