Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7-inch
Samsung has announced the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2, a follow-up to its 2010 tablet of the same size.
The Galaxy Tab 2, unveiled on Monday, will be the first Samsung tablet to run the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) build of the Google Android operating system. The tablet will include features such as a 1GHz processor, Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity options.
"Owners of the new device will benefit from faster performance and response times across multiple applications, such as embedded Google applications, so they can quickly launch sites and applications they use frequently as well as the innovative Face Unlock feature," the company said in a statement.
'Face Unlock' uses the forward-facing camera to recognise an individual and unlock the device if that person is the authorised user.
Pricing and availability of the device is "still to be confirmed", a Samsung spokeswoman told ZDNet UK.
