Samsung's Galaxy Tab line continues to expand, with the latest additions coming in the form of the Galaxy Tab 2 Series. The Galaxy Tab 2 Series is available in 10.1-inch and 7.0-inch screen sizes. While these second-generation models clearly borrow some design cues and other specifications from their predecessors, we were a bit surprised to find out that not a lot has changed from the first-generation models to the new Galaxy Tab 2 series, at least in terms of their internal components.

In fact, many of the key specifications of the first-generation 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab match that of the second-generation Galaxy Tab 2: there's a 10.1-inch WXGA (1280x800) display, 1GHz dual-core processor, and 1GB of RAM. The biggest difference between the two 10.1-inch Galaxy Tabs is price: The second-generation model costs $100 less than its older brother.

The story for the 7.0-inch Galaxy Tab is much the same: similar specifications, but the second-generation model has a price tag that's $100 lower. One key advantage both of the new-generation Galaxy Tab 2 tablets offer is the fact that they run on Android 4.0. Both tablets also feature an integrated IR blaster for universal remote capabilities. You'll find a Smart Remote App on the tablet that works with this blaster.

Although the Galaxy Tab 2 may not offer a lot of new features from its predecessors in the Galaxy Tab lineup, the lower price puts both of these tablets in the mid-range tablet category rather than in the premium category. Given the popularity of tablets and the fact that more people are generally interested in lower cost tablets, rather than a premium price tag, it makes sense that Samsung wants to compete in this space.

We have both the 10.1- and 7.0-inch models in-house for testing. The 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 2 costs $399.99 while the 7.0-inch model runs $249.99. Join us on the pages ahead as we take a closer look at what these tablets have to offer. 

First, here's a quick hands-on with Samsung's new devices...
