Pros: Lowest price 4G tablet for Verizon, Android 4.0.4 ICS, IR Blaster
Cons: Screen resolution isn’t the best, Poor camera quality, Uses a proprietary 30-pin charging/data cable
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) may not be a big step forward on the hardware front, but it's a simple, elegant small-screen tablet that really shows off the polish and power of Google's latest mobile operating system for just $250.

Cons: Average, aging components. Screen could be sharper.
Conclusion: If you've been looking for a good quality, name brand tablet that won't break the bank, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is an excellent choice. It's a full Android tablet running ICS with all the trimmings that ereader tablets lack like dual cameras, a GPS and access to the Google Play Store for apps.

Cons: Small internal storage, decent but not very fast speed.
Conclusion: Above all, there’s no escaping the love surrounding the $249.99 pricing of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 – it’s just super affordable on any budget!

Pros: VERSATILITY, with a wide variety of home theater-friendly applications, and beyond, Front and rear-facing cameras, Bluetooth, microSD card slot... and an IR emitter!, Android 4.0 operating system with Android Market and Flash support
Cons: Some apps slower to launch than others, Proprietary charging/data transfer jack, No 4G connectvity option (yet)
Summary: While the Google Play Store offers access to over 400,000 applications, few of them have been designed with tablets in mind. So while you can certainly find the app you are looking for, you cannot safely assume that it will look great on your tablet's display.
