Oh look, a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and a Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6. They're being announced tomorrow, but I seem to have them already. It's magic!

Here are the specs, via Samsung:


The Galaxy Tab 2 will be available in both 7.0 and 10.1 iterations. The 7.0 version has a WSVGA (1024x600) display and the 10.1 version has a WXGA (1280x800) resolution. The 7.0 has 8GB internal storage while the 10.1 has 16GB internal storage. Both have a 1GHz dual-core processor. The big difference from the Tab 2 from the original Tab is that both now have a microSD card slot. Whee.

Another interesting thing is that Samsung is offering 50GB of free Dropbox storage for the first year for both devices. Also, both tablets now have an IR blaster, which you can use with a smart remote app to control your TV (You can also view what's on your TV on the device. Sort of like a Slingbox.) And yes, you can expect ICS on both.

Price: Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will be $249.99. Available April 22nd. Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will be $399.99. Available May 13.

As for the Galaxy Players, these are the non-phone versions of the Galaxy handhelds that we've seen before. The Galaxy Player 3.6 and 4.2 are the latest versions of them. Here are the specs that I've hastily written down (Will expand on them later if I find anything different):

The Galaxy Player 3.6 has a HVGA 480x320 display, while the 4.2 has a WVGA 800x480 display. Both have 8GB internal memory with a microSD card slot. Both rock a 1GHz Cortex A8 processor. I believe the 4.2 version has a Gyro sensor.

Price: The Galaxy Player 3.6 is $149.99 and is available now. The Galaxy Player 4.2 will be $199.99 and will be available May 13.

More later if I come across anything new. And of course, they'll be on Before You Buy :)
