Samsung Galaxy Tab 2: Your Feature Wishlist

As we all know the Apple iPad is currently the market leader outselling the competition by quite a distance. One of its surprise competitors was the Samsung Galaxy Tab; this nifty little device surpassed all expectations and smashed their expected sales.

Samsung will be looking to capitalize on the decent sales by releasing a second edition, an updated more powerful beast to prowl the land of the tablet PC. This will not be easy, especially since we saw so many tablet PCs at CES 2011 (more than 50). That coupled with some strong competitors running on Android’s latest platform Android Honeycomb 3.0 such as the Motorola Xoom and the Notion Ink Adam. We have also reported that the Galaxy Tab 2 is expected to be showcased MWC 2011 which isn’t too far away, undoubtedly if anything does appear we will be reporting on it! We are fairly confident that we will be hearing something soon as multiple stores have been reducing the price of the Galaxy Tab; perhaps they are trying to squeeze the last few sales out of it before its new updated version is released.

Onto the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and what we want to see included within its chassis. Firstly we would like to see a choice of sizes for their device; we would like to see a 7” and a 10.1” edition. We would like to see at least a dual-core processor if not a quad-core, perhaps the ARM Cortex-A9 with 2GB or RAM. We would like to see a rear and front facing camera that is capable of full HD recording with an LED flash. Perhaps motion sensors on the device would be a good idea like that of a PS3 controller. NFC seems to be pretty big this year so a chip for that should be included. NFC is set to change the way that we pay for things, but as has been shown it can be used for other things too.

Of course, it must have all the basics, such as Bluetooth, WiFi and multi-touch screen with a decent resolution. We really feel like there needs to be something added to a tablet PC that is a little different to all of the others, something unique to make it stand out. It is an expectation that the device will be running Android Gingerbread 2.3 but we are ever the optimists and would love to see it have Android Honeycomb 3.0 would you?

Have you got any innovative ideas that you think could be added to todays or future tablet PCs? What features and specs would you like to see included? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

    I would love to see a 3D screen. Highly unlikely, but its good to dream.
