Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 series delayed until the end of April
Samsung has officially delayed the Galaxy Tab 2 series because the company needs more time to work on incorporating TouchWiz with Android 4.0 ICS
Samsung revealed today that the company will miss the promised early April release window for both the seven and ten-inch versions of the Galaxy Tab 2. According to a Samsung spokesperson, the slates have been delayed because Sammy needs more time to incorporate TouchWiz with Android 4.0 – ouch.
When Samsung announced the two slates at MWC, the company said they would arrive in the U.K. in early April, and then be rolled out internationally. But now it is early April and according to Samsung, the launch window already passed.
Apart from their screen size, the two tablets have very similar specs, including a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, dual-cameras, internal storage of up to 32GB, and a MicroSD card slot. Both slates also run Android 4.0 ICS.
While Samsung has yet to reveal an exact U.S. launch date or pricing, you have to believe a delay like this would push any American launch back even further. No carrier partners have been revealed yet either.
With a launch now coming at the end of April launch overseas, we should hopefully see a version of the tablet in the U.S. later this spring. A summer launch, though, is also probable.
Are you excited about the Galaxy Tab 2 series?
