According to IDG, Samsung’s low-cost tablets, the Galaxy Tab 2 – the 7.0 and 10.1 variant, have been delayed and will now be expected to be shipped in the United Kingdom by the end of this month. This is the second such rollout from Samsung’s side as the company first announced the two products in February when it said it will arrive in UK stores in March followed by rolling out globally.
The reason for the delay is that both Samsung and Google need some more time in order to work on the remaining things of the Ice Cream Sandwich version of the Android mobile operating system. Samsung don’t elaborate many details about it. Once the upgrade starts rolling, the tablet would be the first to get the latest Android version.
Other phones and tablets that will at some point be upgraded include the Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy R, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, 7.7, 8.9, 8.9 LTE and 10.1, according to Samsung. When they eventually ship, the Galaxy Tab 2 models will be available in 3G and Wi-Fi versions. The Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) has a 7-inch screen with a 1024-by-600 pixel resolution and weighs 345 grams, while the Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) has a 10.1-inch screen with a 1280-by-800 pixel resolution and weighs 588 grams.
