• Galaxy Tab 2 vs. Kindle Fire: Is Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 going to be a Kindle Fire killer

    Posted on February 16th, 2012 David Brooks | 94 comments

    Prague, February 13, 2012 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today introduced its first line-up of tablets for 2012 with the launch of the GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0), expanding the choice of tablets to customers. Light and portable, the GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0) is the ideal personal on-the-go device, available in 3G and WiFi versions. Starting from UK, the GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0) will be launched in global market from March.”  (click to get the full Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Press Release). This Monday, Samsung officially released the successor of its Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet, the Galaxy Tab 2, also the first Samsung Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) powered tablet. “The new GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0) will provide people with delighted multimedia experience and allow efficient communication.” said JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 2Samsung has promised to bring more delighted multimedia experience to users with Galaxy Tab 2. And it really does. The Galaxy Tab 2 comes in 7.0 inch large LCD screen with 1024*600 screen resolution, 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 out of the box, all of which really produce delighted multimedia experience for you to watch HD videos on Galaxy Tab 2, or even play and watch HD Blu-ray movies on Galaxy Tab 2 on the go at your own will. From the excellent multimedia experience only, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is a good choice for you when you want to get a tablet. If you are still not sure about it, let’s just make a comparison (based on the source from geek.com) between Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and Kindle Fire, one of the biggest products of the 2011 holiday season. This comparison of these two smart tablets would include several aspects: dimensions, weight, display, processor, RAM, storage, Wi-Fi connectivity, camera, battery, price, etc.

    Dimensions

    Galaxy Tab 2 vs. Kindle Fire - DimensionsFrom the pictures above, the Galaxy Tab 2 is 122.4mm*193.7mm*10.5mm, while the Kindle Fire is 120mm*192mm*12.4mm. We can easily get the conclusion that the Galaxy Tab 2 is slimmer, longer and wider than Kindle Fire, which no doubt brings more delighted multimedia experience for users.

    Weight

    Galaxy Tab 2 vs. Kindle Fire - WeightObviously, the Galaxy Tab 2 (weights 344g) is much lighter than Kindle Fire (which weights 413g). This could be considered as a big advantage of Galaxy Tab 2 over Kindle Fire.

    Display

    Galaxy Tab 2 vs. Kindle Fire - DisplayWell, for the screen display size, both Galaxy Tab 2 and Kindle Fire own 7 inches screen with 1024*600 screen resolution and 169 pixels per inch. There is no difference on screen display size actually, but as the Galaxy Tab 2 is slimmer, longer and wider than Kindle Fire, it seems that the Galaxy Tab 2 would be a little bit larger than Kindle Fire. And the Galaxy Tab 2 uses Samsung’s new PLS LCD, while the Kindle Fire uses a standard IPS display.

    Processor

    Galaxy Tab 2 vs. Kindle Fire - ProcessorThe device processor weights a lot for its competence and competitiveness. The Galaxy Tab 2 comes with 1GHz dual-core processor, inferior to the 1.2GHz dual-core processor of Galaxy Tab Plus, but evenly-matched to Kindle Fire. But we know different processor chips vary in performance, the Kindle Fire sports a Texas Instruments OMAP 4, while the processor chip of the Galaxy Tab 2 is still unknown.

    RAM

    Galaxy Tab 2 vs. Kindle Fire - RAMAdvanced RAM configuration would surely bring faster device processing and more smooth multimedia experience. From this point of view, the Galaxy Tab 2 again gets a great victory over Kindle Fire with its 1GB RAM. Compared with Kindle Fire, the Galaxy Tab 2 produces better multimedia experience for you to watch HD videos.

    Storage

    Galaxy Tab 2 vs. Kindle Fire - StorageAs nowadays the HD movies are the dominant for multimedia enjoyment, thus larger memory storage is required upon devices. Again, the Galaxy Tab 2 makes another beat on Kindle Fire. Samsung provides three different models of Galaxy Tab 2 with external SD card memory extension: 8GB, 16GB and 32GB, while Kindle Fire only provides 8GB memory storage without external SD card memory extension support.

    Wi-Fi connectivity

    Galaxy Tab 2 vs. Kindle Fire - WiFiSamsung also offers more options for wireless connectivity. Like storage, though, you’ll have to pay for it. Those who opt for the more expensive 3G/4G version will enjoy HSPA+ 21mbps speeds. It isn’t LTE, but it should suffice for most users.

    Camera

    Galaxy Tab 2 vs. Kindle Fire - CameraThe Galaxy Tab 2 features dual cameras, respectively 3GP for rear and VGA for front, which aren’t particularly mind-blowing, nonetheless. That’s been enough to compete with Amazon Kindle Fire, which has no cameras.

    Battery

    Galaxy Tab 2 vs. Kindle Fire - BatteryIt’s a little surprising that Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 opted for a lower capacity battery than Amazon Kindle Fire. Battery life in the Fire is solid, but it could have easily been improved upon. There are many other factors that can determine battery life, though, so perhaps Samsung found the 4,000mAh battery to be sufficient. Future testing will tell us more here.

    As for the price comparison, it is still uncertain for Samsung hasn’t yet priced the Galaxy Tab 2. But the price might be the biggest advantage of Kindle Fire, which is priced at only $200. The Galaxy Tab 2 would have different prices for its three different models. Until the prices are unveiled, we couldn’t make sure of that.

      I have observed that sensible real estate agents almost everywhere are getting set to FSBO Advertising and marketing. They are noticing that it’s more than simply placing a poster in the front yard. It’s really regarding building interactions with these sellers who someday will become customers. So, while you give your time and energy to supporting these dealers go it alone – the “Law of Reciprocity” kicks in. Good blog post.

    • Nearly all of the things you say is supprisingly precise and it makes me wonder why I had not looked at this with this light before. This particular article truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this specific subject goes. But at this time there is actually one position I am not really too comfortable with and whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual central idea of the point, permit me observe just what all the rest of the visitors have to say.Nicely done.
