Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 production halted for major processor upgrade
| by Shayne Rana |
Samsung’s venture into the tablet market has been somewhat dull and overshadowed by their arch rival Apple and their ever so popular iPad and its various updates along the line. However their Galaxy Tab 10.1 and those that followed were hit hard and circled with controversy and riddled with lawsuits in Australia and Europe thanks to Apple’s efforts. Samsung’s not a company to take it sitting down so naturally, amidst the lawsuits, they readied their next gen tablet device i.e. the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.
Recalled for a major upgrade
The latest news in the tech grapevine is that Samsung’s upcoming iteration of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has hit a minor “snag”, if you can even call it that, in production. The Korean manufacturer has reportedly halted production of the Galaxy Tab 2 as they didn’t seem too satisfied with the kind of specs it had to offer. The ICS running device was announced at MWC earlier this year and in case you missed that here’s a quick look at the specs -
The original device was reported to have a 1GHz Dual-Core Processor with 1GB RAM. Obviously that was doomed to be outdated by the time the tablet made its presence in an official capacity. So Samsung in an effort to keep their new device as fresh as possible has decided to up the processing power of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to a Quad Core of the 1.5GHz variety. This will significantly boost the overall capabilities of the tablet making it something the rest of its kin would seriously need to contend with. The Tab 2 10.1 will also be a little thicker than its older siblings but by how much is yet unknown. A few design changes here and there are also expected.
A commendable effort surely from Samsung. The launch date of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has yet to be announced and we are waiting in eager anticipation. Let’s just hope the price is not too much of a deterrent.
