We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 16GB internal storage capacity tablet computers currently available including the Apple iPad which has better reviews.

If this tablet internal storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Samsung Galaxy Notepro 12.2 (32GB and higher rated), the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 ($1,040.00) (32GB and higher rated), or the bq Edison 3 3G (32GB and higher rated).

With a processor clock speed of only 1 gigahertz, the Galaxy Tab 2 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Galaxy Tab 2.

We compared all the other 1GHz processor clock speed tablets to this tablet and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad, and the Samsung GT-P5110 Galaxy Tab 2 is also worth considering.

If this Samsung tablet computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Ematic EGD172 (1.1GHz), the Samsung SM-T330 Galaxy Tab 4 (1.2GHz), or the Lisciani Mio Tab (1.2GHz) which also has a higher rating.
