Samsung Announces Ice-Cream Sandwich 7inch Tablet

Posted on February 13, 2012

Samsung has announced its first Ice Cream Sandwich running tablet, the Galaxy Tab 2. This is great news for anyone looking for a small format tablet, as Ice Cream Sandwich has brought several improvements to the Android experience.

With the voice call capability, the GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0) can be used just as easily as a phone, affording users the handy convenience of a second device in case they misplace their primary phone

Having voice call capability in a tablet can be useful when combining a call with shared content, just as Aptilon did with their healthcare oriented solution; however even a 7 inch tablet is likely to be too large to place on the ear and use as a telephone. Hence such voice calling capabilities are likely to remain niche.
