    Can someone tell me why the Tab 10.1 wifi + 3g is more expensive than Tab2 10.1 wifi + 3g?

    If I'm not wrong, the technical is the Tab2 better than Tab.

    Hope to get the answer here.

    Welcome to the forum! Glad you decided to join us.

    I was looking at the Tab 10.1 and the Tab 2 10.1 and noticed the same thing.

    Seems like the Tab 2 is the way to go.

    Looking at them side by side (Tablet Comparison Chart - Compare 2012 Tablet PCs)

    Tab/Tab2 comparison (Only showing specs that are different):
    Storage Expansion: none / microSD
    Thickness: 0.3" / 0.38"
    USB Host: No / Yes
    Front Camera: 2MP / VGA
    Camera Flash: Yes / No

    So, the original is thinner, better front camera and a rear camera flash. New one has USB and microSD for storage expansion and other devices.

    And no, I do not know why the Tab2 is so much cheaper.

    Have ordered Tab2 yesterday:
    + USB is important for me;
    + Storage expansion (interesting for the future);
    + Think the front-camera will be good enough for Skype-calls;
    + off course the price -> not big difference but can spend that money for a case

    So: 524 euro's for Samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1 3G Wifi Titanium Silver + Anymode Vip Case Black :D

    2 days of testing the Tab. Really happy with my choise!

    Can wark about 2 days without charging while regularly usage. May be more if I always turn the wifi & 3g off when don't need it!
