      I think the Note 10.1 would have been nice. This doesn’t look that appealing to me especially if Google announced the Nexus 10 tablet next week.

  • mreveryphone

    This is okay, but my eyes are tunnel focused on that nexus 10 super device rumored to be lurking around taking pics

  • Omg 3 mega pixel camera what is this a joke, i hope the backcamera has flash..

    • theking_13

      Yeah, because whenever I want to pick out a tablet, I choose the one with the best camera… :facepalm:

    I’ve had some hands on time with the Tab 2 this week. As much as I love my Android phones, the size and shape of this just doesn’t do it for me. I prefer my iPad by a long shot. And I reeeeeally wanted to love it.

    Why is this even coming out? T mobile needs to just bow out of the tablet market. Prices are too low for them to try to complete with subsidized pricing and no one wants to be locked in to a 2 year contract that provides web to just one device given current data pricing. And this hardware was old even before it was originally announced. Now its a dinosaur. Why T-Mobile? Why?

    • You can use T-mobiles tablets as Hot Spots, so you can connect multiple devices to your data connection. I would prefer a 7″ tablet though, for better portability.

    The Galaxy Tab 2 is on of the poorest android tablets one can purchase. The screens are nice and that is about it. TW drags it down quite a bit. It is on par with the Motorola xoom in performance, no joke.

    I newly into android app development those are the worst performing tablets out of the 12 that I have.

    Save your money and buy an Asus TF201 or a TF700T or a nexus 7 if you are going to go small.
