Email

Included in the pre-installed apps for the tablet is the Gmail app, as well as another email app for POP/IMAP/Exchange email accounts. The Gmail app in particular is very well put-together, and easy to navigate; you don't really lose any functionality by using the popular mail client on your tablet.

If you elect to link an address from a different email client to your tablet, you can do so by using the Email app. Simply follow the wizard, and you should be able to import your contacts, inbox, and everything you need form your old client right onto the tablet.

Web Browsing

The web browser of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is prety much the same stock browser on most Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) devices, looking and functioning much like Google's popular Chrome browser, but on a tablet. If you'd like, you can browse with multiple tabs, windows, and bookmarks. Your oft-visited sites are displayed in thumbnail format when you create a new tab, and controls are standard. You can pinch to zoom in or out, tap to click, and swipe to move the visible area of the page. Holding down your finger on a page element will call out a menu of certain actions you can take with that page part.
