MWC: Samsung adds to Galaxy tablet and handset portfolios


Two new Tab 2 devices unveiled, with the Beam adding to manufacturer’s Galaxy collection of products

Samsung has launched two new tablets with seven and 10.1 inch screens, as well as the Beam handsets as it continues to expand its Galaxy portfolio of devices.

Both the Tab 2 (7.0) and (10.1) (pictured left) have exactly the same specifications. They are powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor and run off Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

They house a three megapixel camera, VGA front-facing camera for video calling, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable memory with a microSD card.

Also included are Samsung’s Hubs, ChatON and AllShare play services.

Both products are available in 3G and Wi-Fi. They will go on sale in the UK from next month.

The Galaxy Beam handset (pictured right) is also powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor but runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Content including video clips, maps, business information and games can be shared on a high-definition projection of up to 50 inches wide.

The Galaxy Beam can project full screen video clips onto a ceiling or wall. ItĀ features a projector-dedicated application with the aim of making it easier to select and activate projection.

Other specifications include a four-inch touchscreen five megapixel rear camera and 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera.
