Will Upcoming Samsung's Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Dethrone the Asus Transformer Prime?
Recently Samsung was set full force to release the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet to compete among some of the big boys, but now, looks like Samsung has ceased production of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Rumor out of Samsung in Korea is, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will be receiving a quad-core processor. This could be Samsung feeling the heat from some of its rivals, like the 3rd Generation iPad and the Asus Transformer Prime. It didn't make sense for Samsung to release the Galaxy Tab 2 with a slower dual-core processor compared to Asus's upcoming Infinity TF700T tablet. Asus's Transformer Prime launched with its shares of problems, and up to now, many users are still reporting GPS and WiFi issues. Asus has announced they will be releasing a GPS dongle to fix the GPS issues, but how many will jump to the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 running quad-core processor?
At this point, no word if the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will actually receive the Exynos 4412, or maybe some step down form of the 4412 at lower clock speed. Either way, this will be a welcome in the competition and hopefully the starting price will remain at $399.
I am more interested in the Galaxy Note Tab 10.1, but sure would be nice if Samsung could design a keyboard dock like the Asus Transformer Prime. If Asus had released the Transformer Prime with Wacom digitizer, this would have been the best tablet for me!
