Original Galaxy Tab, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Galaxy Tab 2

Original Galaxy Tab vs Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus vs Galaxy Tab 2

The Galaxy Tab line of 7.0 inch tablets is now three strong. The original Galaxy Tab was launched in 2010 and was the first Android tablet to take seriously because it had access to the Android Market unlike other Android tablets. It launched with Android 2.2 and was later upgraded to Android 2.3. The second 7.0 inch tablet is called the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. It launched in late 2011 with Honeycomb. Last there is the Galaxy Tab 2 coming in March 2012 with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It will likely be the first Android 4.0 tablet by Samsung unless they provide a software update to another tablet in their lineup before next march.

You might expect the specs of these devices to be better with each iteration but that is not the case. While there are some significant differences between the original Galaxy Tab and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, there is hardly any difference between the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and Galaxy Tab 2. Check out the whole specs breakdown.

    Some of us original Galaxy Tab owners have never been provided with the Android 2.3 update and can get no answers from Samsung about it. That is why this is my last Samsung.
