Last week Andreas announce release dates for the next generation of Samsung Galaxy Tabs, and there really hasn’t been any fanfare surrounding them. When they were originally announced Andreas checked them out and found the reason there is no excitement. The original Galaxy Tab is a decent tablet, but when making the next generation Samsung really hasn’t made any spectacular changes to make current owners want to upgrade. It almost looks like Samsung was happy with the hardware of the current generation, but just wanted to change it aesthetically to get away from lawsuits coming from Apple. The rumor behind the reason why production has stopped actually might change some people’s perception of the new Galaxy Tab.
Supposedly the reason why production has stopped is due to an upgrade to a quad-core Exynos processor for the 10.1 version. The 7.0 is getting no upgrades and is supposed to be available in the US soon. The release date for the 10.1 was in May, and there is no news if this stoppage will effect the release date or not. If this is true then it might make the 10.1 actually worth buying. This news actually makes a little sense since the production was also stalled on the Galaxy Note 10.1 to switch to a quad-core Exynos processor as well. It will be interesting to see if this upgrade will change either the release date or the price of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, but it should definitely change some peoples opinion of this tablet.[Android Community]
