In case your interested in a 7 inch tablet that has a cellular connection, then you may want to consider Verizon’s upcoming Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 by Samsung.

Launching on August 17 for $349, the latest Samsung Galaxy Tab boasts a 7 inch display with 1024×600 resolution display, Android 4.0, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity, 3.2MP rear facing camera, VGA front facing camera, 8GB on board memory, microSD memory expansion, and WiFi.

The specs, in my opinion, are slightly above average but the Nexus 7 outperforms the device in terms of processor speed and software integration.  Essentially, you’re paying a premium to have 4G LTE connectivity and a rear facing camera, but if those two things are a must, then it is a necessary purchase.

I would prefer to see the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 come with a “wow” factor either in a lower price or Android 4.1, but perhaps those will come in the near future.
