    Hello all,

    Thinking of buying a Galaxy 10.1 TAB 2, but just wondering what the main differences between the new and old 10.1 are? - except for the difference in price.

    There are quite a few differences between the two versions.

    The 10.1 sports a LED on the rear for use with the camera, as opposed to the 10.2 having none, although, and to be fair, the camera on both are, well, crap!

    The 10.2 has a Texas instruments GFX chip as opposed to the 10.1 having a NVidia Tegra 2 installed, which apparently runs faster than the 10.2.

    In regards to memory, screen and internal SD space, both models are identical.

    To be fair, the only thing that makes the 10.2 more appealing over the 10.1, is as you have correctly stated, the price.

    Samsung, unfortunately, have not increaased the spec of the 10.2 over it's older sibling, rather, they have cut the spec back and reduced the price, whereas most other manufacturers have 'also' decreased prices, but maintained spec or increased it.

    There 'are' better tablets available, personally, i love my 10.2, it suits me for my everyday use, and is taking place over my laptop for a lot of tasks.

    Hope this helps..

    Besides what was mentioned above....

    I think (for me) the biggest difference between would be the original 10.1 tab doesn't have a Micro SD slot for media but that might not be a deal breaker for you.
