I almost lost track of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1″ today amidst the Nexus 4 and Windows Phone 8 launches, but there it is, right on T-Mobile’s site for $399.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. Running on T-Mobile HSPA+ 42Mbps network, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1? is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 10.1″ 1280×800 WXGA display, 7000mAh battery, 1GB of RAM and a Jelly Bean update arriving “soon.” T-Mobile’s model arrives with 16GB of internal memory with an expandable microSD slot providing up to 48GB of memory.
The “good” news is that T-Mobile’s model lacks LTE, so it runs around $100 cheaper than AT&T and Sprint alternatives. The bad news is that you have to weigh this purchase against that of the Nexus 10, which is by all account a “better” tablet on paper according to all relevant specs.
