In what would appear to be the show of sequels, with Samsung announcing its second Android tablet – the Galaxy Tab 10.1, aka the Tab II. This time it gets to run Honeycomb, and grows a few inches in size in the process.

The 10.1-inch tablet will come with full (1080p) HD video recording, with an integrated 8-megapixel camera and sports dual pseudo-surround sound speakers. The tablet will also be powered by a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset.

Shipping with Google’s Android Honeycomb operating system, designed specifically for tablets, the new Galaxy Tab will no longer be looked upon as a blown up smartphone like the original.

The Galaxy Tab II joins the Motorola XOOM and LG Optimus Pad, with Motorola matching the Samsung with a 10-inch screen, while the LG Optimus Pad will have a 9-inch screen, but with 3D capabilities.
