Excerpt: It took a while, but Samsung finally rolled out the long-awaited Android 4.0 update for its 'old' Galaxy Tab 10.1 GT-P7500. The tablet from last year was supposed to get the upgrade from Android 3.2 to Android 4.0 earlier, but it took a bit longer than expected. Hardware.Info compared the performance of the two Android versions.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is a fantastic device. It hits the sweet spot between the budget tablets and the iPad. It has features and specifications that are value for money, and it is an better overall performer than the Sony Tablet S and the Motorola Xoom. The only disappointment comes with the display, which could have had a better resolution and the fact that the Google Play store isn't well populated with tablet specific apps. If you are in the market to spend Rs.
Pros: Overall great experience, TouchWiz is a good skin, Expandable memory, Dual-core processor, Good build
Cons: Bad viewing angles, Too big to be used as a phone, No plug and transfer feature for Mac
Conclusion: As of time of this writing, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 launches in two days nationwide, starting at $499 for a 16GB model and $499 for a 32GB model, which is the exact same pricing scheme as the iPad 2. If it will be a winner remains to be seen as that is the power of the consumers, but overall, in this review, I can definitively say (with confidence) that the Galaxy tab 10.1 is better than the Xoom, which is the original Android Honeycomb tablet, lighter than the ASUS Eee Pad...
Pros: Amazing looks., Very fast and clean Android 3.1 build., Decent camera quality., Thin and light., Pricing scheme makes sense.
Conclusion: The Wi-Fi–only Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the thinnest Honeycomb tablet available, and it's very capable, but its Touchwiz UI means Android updates are in doubt.
Pros: The thinnest tablet currently available. Excellent 10.1-inch HD screen. Honeycomb 3.1 brings improved multitasking, Flash support, and a higher-quality user experience. Comes with earbuds—a rarity for a tablet.
Cons: TouchWiz UI means update delays for future Android versions. App selection is weak. Even with a strong Wi-Fi signal, online video playback sputtered in our tests.
