With the Nexus 7 priced at $199, Android manufacturers such as Samsung really need to get more competitive if they ever plan on selling any tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 was already priced fairly competitive at $249, but it looks like they will make a bundled package available later this month. It will be called the Student Edition and it will come with a keyboard and USB adapter, but the price will remain the same.
It looks like it will be in the Best Buy ad for the week of August 19th so look for it then. The Galaxy Tab 2 can’t measure up to the Nexus 7 in terms of specs, but for those that don’t need all the horsepower, but would rather have the flexibility of expanded storage through a microSD, this is a pretty decent deal.
