Samsung recently announced that its new line of Ice Cream Sandwich powered Galaxy Tab 2's will be launching in the U.S. in the near future.
The 7-inch version of the Galaxy Tab 2 is expected to retail at $249.99 in the states with the 10.1-inch model selling for $399.99.
Both of them will come with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed along with many other exciting features.
"The Galaxy Tab 2 Series, available in both 10.1" and 7.0" screen sizes, are powerful dual-core tablets running the latest version of Android –Ice Cream Sandwich," said Samsung in a press release. "The devices feature an integrated IR blaster for universal remote capabilities, as well as an easily accessible memory card slot for convenient loading of multimedia files in a range of supported file formats."
The Galaxy Tab 2 also has complete access to the Google Play store, which was formerly known as the Android Marketplace.
"These new Galaxy Tab 2 and Galaxy Player devices deliver consumers have come to expect from all Samsung products- exceptional design, impressive connectivity options and a selection of choices from each type of person and user scenario," said Tim Baxter, President, Samsung Electronics America.
"A one size fits all solution is just not sufficient," he added.
Samsung strives to create original devices such as the smartphone-tablet hybrid, the Galaxy Note that debuted earlier this year.
The Galaxy Player seems to be the electronics giant's answer to Apple's iPod.
The Galaxy Tab 2 line was unveiled by Samsung at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The 7-inch version is currently available for pre-order and ships on April 22 and customers will be able to reserve the 10.1-inch version on May 4 with the launch date being on May 13.
