Samsung Electronics America, Inc. on Thursday, 12th of April 2012 unveils two new set of Samsung products – the two new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and two new Samsung Galaxy Players – in line with their “commitment” to provide all consumers with a wider range of choices and flexibility. These four new Samsung Galaxy portable and handheld devices only shows that the company is indeed serious with their promise to all of their consumers. They only wanted to provide the end-users the right to choose which devices would be the most suitable for their needs. As Tim Baxter, President of Samsung Electronics America puts it “A one size fits all solution is just not sufficient.” – I guess Tim was referring to Apple’s iPad line-up.
Here are the new additions to the popular Samsung GALAXY family in the world of portable and handheld devices that will soon be hitting the market.
- Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0)
- Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1)
- Galaxy Player 3.6

With so much Samsung devices now out in the market, how does these new GALAXY devices differs from their siblings?

These portable tablets also features an integrated infrared (IR) blaster that can be utilize as an universal remote control.
