SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: August 9th, 2012

This morning it's time for the leaks to come rolling in, starting with the Sony Xperia Tablet - all thin and new looking. Two "pre-human" species have been found in another awesome day in science that'll be bringing new understanding to us on the whole "where did we come from" question. There's still a bunch of Agent Orange over in Vietnam from the conflict they (and we) had about 40 years ago - now we're going to help get rid of it with super-heat.

Everyone is scrambling to get their hands on the cheap and cheerful Nexus 7, starting at $199 for the 8GB model, but Samsung might be looking to entice customers with its own affordable wares in the near future. A tipster has sent in a picture to Engadget showing off a student edition of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. It’s the same tablet that the company already sells, but Samsung will be throwing in a keyboard and USB adapter as part of the $249 package.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 vs iPad = no contest

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 vs iPad = no contest

The differences between the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the iPad (1, 2, and 3 for that matter) are immense - though I'm sure the title of this post will evoke a litany of different interpretations from readers here today. The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is the next-generation tablet from Samsung to come with their own suite of Samsung-tuned applications, while the iPad is the best selling tablet-like device of all time as well as one of the best selling devices of all time, bar none. Samsung didn't create the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to compete with the iPad, but the inevitable question that pops up in the mind of everyone considering a new tablet purchase does end up being that almost no matter what: do I want this, or do I want an iPad instead?

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Review

This week we've gotten the next Galaxy Player family member in the house with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. What's that, you say? The Galaxy Tab 2 is a tablet and not a Galaxy Player? I beg to differ, ladies and gentlemen, as the Samsung world has done a big split in recent months, with no less than the Galaxy Tab 2 line heading in the direction of the media player while the Galaxy Note line (including the 10.1, for example) moves in the direction the Galaxy Tab 10.1 original started in back at Google I/O in 2011. Have a peek at what the Tab 2 line continues here in the 2 10.1 for the media world.

The next Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet is up for pre-order now, all 10.1-inches of it complete with a dual-core processor inside.

Samsung attacks 7-inch opponents to Tab 2

Samsung attacks 7-inch opponents to Tab 2

When reviewing the 7-inch tablet known as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, we mostly stuck to describing its graces and faults in and of itself, but this week Samsung has released several charts comparing the device to two of what they see as its main rivals. You'll find that Samsung has quite a few areas it's eager to show off as superior here in the Galaxy Tab 2 that, shown here, certainly seem to be lacking in the competition. Is it time for e-readers to step up their game and go Android without the extra skin, or will the two other champions of text-based media here in the tablet universe beat out Samsung's newest effort?

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 delayed for quad-core upgrade [UPDATE: Samsung denies]

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 delayed for quad-core upgrade [UPDATE: Samsung denies]

The folks at Samsung have been tipped to be holding back the next steps in their tablet evolution with not only the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 but the Galaxy Note 10.1 as well, both of them set for an upgrade to quad-core processors at launch time. Both of these devices were originally set to have dual-core processors of one kind or another, but due to the extremely quickly changing times in the tablet market it seems, they'll be upgrading both to their next-generation Exynos chips with four CPU cores instead. This bodes well for the Samsung tablet line as well as the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone which is set to be revealed next month.

Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for the USA brings the $400 tablet to Samsung

It's time for Samsung to get a taste of the $399.99 tablet pricetag, especially now that the Apple iPad 2 is selling for that same price and still being produced to replenish stock on the regular. What with the tablet wars still very much going in Apple's favor, Samsung's strategy to create an Android slate in every conceivable shape and size seems to be sticking. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 joins the official USA release announcement team with the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 we've completed a review of today - is this your new everyday all day tablet?

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review

There's a brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet in town, and this one is what Samsung hopes will be a whole new experience driver for the whole hardware family. Where what we've seen before from Samsung has been a set of tablets that tried to be everything at once, this and the 10.1-inch version of the Galaxy Tab 2 are both aiming more at the services they can provide with other devices rather than concentrating on that plus content creation plus gaming plus a partridge in a pear tree. What we've got here instead is Samsung's suite of connected services encapsulated in one machine - and it feels nice to use, too!

Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) briefly listed for $309 on QVC

A few days ago we heard that Samsung planned to delay the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and 10.1, citing software issues with Ice Cream Sandwich that needed to be fixed. Samsung did say that they intended the tablets to be a bit friendlier on the wallet, and a new listing seems to confirm that. Phone Arena spotted a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 listing on QVC’s website, with the tablet coming in for just $309. The listing has since been removed.
