But, the Tab 2's might not be all there is. There's a bunch of rumors about "Espresso" 10.1" and 7" tablets that could potentially have quad-cores and HD displays becoming Samsung's iPad fighter/premium line. A tablet may be announced at the May 3 Galaxy event in London and that should provide some clarity.

For those looking at tablets, here's something to think about. They may all look the same but they aren't designed and built the same way. I've been following the Prime and while Asus represents great value there's tons of compromise in the process. Like AzureWave (vs. Broadcom) radios with no 5Ghz support, HannSpree displays riddled with dead pixels and LCD bleed, and truly questionable build quality. Here's a tear down of the Prime. You get what you pay for.

To get the price down, it'll be interesting to see what types of compromises Samsung accepted with the Tab 2's.

The transformer pad 300 has been announced, 399 pounds from early may. That is tempting, quad core keyboard dock and ics for 399. :L

yeah im aware of that. I just dont understand the need for the same device re-released when there's something new already coming.
LG G Pad 8.3 GPE, LG G Pad 8.3, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung Galaxy S3.

I think it's Samsung's way of selling the OS.

I'm in the same boat too. I think I'm gonna wait for the 1920x1080 (1080p) tablets to come out from Samsung, Sony, Asus, and Acer and then decide on one of those. I hope one of them will have double the ram at that resolution or at least 1.8 - 2.0 Ghz Tegra 3 processors to push that res. They'll need it.

DONATE TO ME
I'm returning this tablet, I just bought it three days ago. The lag on it kills me I already dislike touchwiz. Returning tomorrow and ordering the Asus tf300t. Plus better for less $$.
