Android 4.0 slate serves up 7in of Ice Cream Sandwich goodness

Samsung has unveiled its 7in Galaxy Tab 2 tablet, showcasing a new, more rounded form factor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich sporting Sammy's usual TouchWiz skin.

As well as its more curvaceous rear end (stop sniggering at the back), the Galaxy Tab 2 comes packing a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and a 7in, 1024x600 LCD screen.

Samsung's also packed in a 3MP rear-facing camera, a front-facing VGA snapper, HSPA+ support and a 4,000mAh battery to keep the Galaxy Tab 2 chuntering along.

Sammy's new slate comes with new services Video Hub, offering films for purchase or rental, and S Suggest, an app recommendation engine which pops up suggestions on your home screen.

The Galaxy Tab 2 will come in 16GB and 32GB flavours with 3G and Wi-Fi-only options. Pricing's only been revealed for the Scandinavian countries, hovering at around US$450.
