Until Amazon's Kindle Fire hit the market late last year, no Android-powered tablet had made even a small impact on the marketplace. With its $200 price tag and customized user interface, the Kindle Fire was a real success.
Samsung is now aiming to grab a piece of that success by building its own low-cost Android tablet. The catch is that Samsung's new entry, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, looks anything but low-cost. In fact, it features a much better spec sheet than the Kindle Fire, and uses the same streamlined body design as its more expensive brethren.
