The new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 packs the same 7000mAh battery and runs on Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS backed by a dash of Samsung's own TouchWiz customizations.
There is still no word regarding the price of any Galaxy Tab 2 model but Samsung did note that Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will hit retail during March, at least in the UK.
Of course, Mobile World Congress 2012 is scheduled to hit its first day tomorrow so expect a lot of hands-on experiences and more details regarding any type of mobile devices.
