Android tablet deals are a dime-a-dozen on the web these days, but today’s is pretty decent. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1″ is on sale through the good people over at Woot! for only $279.99. Unlike usual deals where the tablets have been refurbished by the OEMs and are now on sale, this is a brand new device that comes with an accessory bundle as well. (more…)
At this point, it is quite clear that 2013 is shaping up to be Samsung’s biggest year yet in the mobile industry. With very highly anticipated flagship devices yet to be announced and the blog-o-sphere lighting up over next month’s MWC device unveiling rumors, Samsung barely has to try at this point to make headlines. The newest info across the wire are rumors of their upcoming Galaxy Tab 3 tablet devices, said to be ready for launch by sometime mid-2013. (more…)
Sprint is looking to shine some spotlight on their 4G LTE network this morning with the announcment of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. As far as details on pricing and availability, there’s zilch. Basically, all we have is a full list of Galaxy Tab 2 specs which we’ve had since the tablets release. (more…)
We know, we have told you over and over again that if you are looking for an Android tablet right now, the Nexus 7 is the way to go. But if the bottom-line price is an important issue, then today’s Woot! deal will be hard to ignore. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is on sale today only for $179.99 for a refurbished model. That gets you a 7″ tablet with a 1GHz dual-core processor and Samsung’s TouchWiz on top of Ice Cream Sandwich packed inside. There is 8GB of on-board storage that can be expanded with a microSD card.
Not the best tablet in the market today, but again, this is a deal. And if the refurbished tag is giving you second thoughts, let me say from personal experience that I bought my WiFi XOOM refurbished from Woot! and it is still going strong to this day.
Does this deal interest you or would you save for something else?
As Verizon announced on Wednesday, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) tablet can be purchased through Big Red with 4G LTE connectivity starting today. For $349, you can add this to your ongoing tablet collection and attach it to your Share Everything plan for $10 per month. That price though is an off-contract cost as Verizon no longer offers subsidized pricing on tablets since the introduction of their shared data plans. (more…)
Verizon announced this morning that they will begin to carry a 4G LTE powered Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) as of this Friday, August 17. For $349, you can add this to your ongoing tablet collection and attach it to your Share Everything plan for just $10 extra per month. The price is an off-contract price, as Verizon killed off subsidized tablet pricing once their shared data plans went live back in early July.
This tablet is not necessarily new and has been available as a WiFi-only model for months, but we know that there are users out there who can’t live without 4G LTE at all times. The device rocks a 7″ screen, runs Ice Cream Sandwich with TouchWiz, has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 3.2MP rear camera, VGA front camera, and 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 64GB through an SD card slot.
This is by all means, a mid to low-range tablet, hence the $349 price tag. Unfortunately for Samsung and Verizon, this tablet can’t match up to the Nexus 7, so unless 4G LTE is a must for you in a big slate, it’s going to be tough for us to recommend you run out this Friday and pick one up. (more…)
If you are looking to buy an Android tablet right now, it’s hard to over look ASUS. Whether it be the Nexus 7 or the higher priced Transformer Infinity, they are on top of the Android tablet game. Although, if you are a sucker for a good deal, you might want to check out the bundle that Samsung and Best Buy have put together which is to arrive in stores around August 19.
For $250 you can have the 8GB 7″ version of the Galaxy Tab 2, along with a keyboard dock and a USB connector. Not a bad bundle if you consider that keyboards for tablets usually run anywhere from $30-$50 by themselves.
Wouldn’t it be nice to see a huge price war between tablet OEM’s at around $200?
