Tegra 2 and Honeycomb
Although it has been rumoured for quite some time, the Galaxy Tab 2 or the Galaxy Tab 10.1 as Samsung offically calls it, has finally been unveiled at this years Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, Spain.

The new slate from Samsung features all the goodies that you would expect from high end such device as Tegra 2 dual-core processor and Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS. The new Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available in two versions, with either 16 or 32GB of storage space. It comes with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 resolution TFT display and although it lacks Super AMOLED or Super AMOLED Plus, it looks pretty good according to the first hands-on.

The rest of the features include a front-facing 2 megapixel and a back 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, a SIM slot, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, gyroscope, accelerometer, digital compass, and proximity sensor, 3.5mm audio jack and stereo speakers. Unfortunately, the device lacks USB and HDMI connectors but it has a bottom placed "dock connector", so we are pretty sure that those will be included. It features a 6860mAh battery that should give it a impressive battery life.

The device itself is 10.9mm thick and weighs 599 grams. Sadly, Samsung didn't reveal any details regarding the price and the only thing known so far is that it will be launching in Europe and Asia in March, under the Vodafone banner.
