Samsung has announced its first tablet release of 2012 will be the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0). The device will be available in 3G and Wi-Fi versions. Pricing and availability is still to be confirmed.

It features a seven inch touchscreen, three megapixel fixed focus camera on the rear and a front-facing VGA camera for video calling.

Samsung’s existing ‘Hub’ range (Music, Reader and Games) is available on the device, as well as the manufacturer’s new Video Hub, which offers over 1,000 films for purchasew or rent.

Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface has been upgraded to feature widgets that allow one-step access to selected content, with S Suggest offering app recommendations directly to the home screen.

Also featured for the first time on a Samsung device is AllShare Play, which allows users to play or live-stream their multimedia content on the tablet from PCs and other Samsung smart devices.

Samsung UK and Ireland telecommunications and networks division managing director Simon Stanford said: “We have actively worked to enhance and extend our tablet offering since the launch of the original Galaxy Tab 18 months ago, to put us in the position we are in today of being able to offer our customers a portfolio of devices of varying sizes relative to their different needs.
