Forget the iPad! Tesco Sells 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab For £359

Tesco is slashing the price of the Samsung Galaxy Tab as well as a few more laptops as it cuts 20 per cent of their selling price until the 8th of February 2011.

Originally on sale for £449, the Galaxy Tab now costs £359.20, a saving of £89.80. On top of that you also get around 700 Tesco Clubcard points (the equivalent of £7 instore) and a free entertainment package worth £200.

As part of the package, Samsung is throwing in 50 MP3s from emusic.com, 15 movies from Samsung Movies, seven games from Gameloft and £25 of eBooks through the WHSmith App until 28 February 2011.

The interesting thing to note is that the Samsung Galaxy Tab is very similar - hardware wise - to the Samsung Galaxy S, although packs a bigger screen and 16GB of storage. The cheapest Samsung Galaxy S we have found however, is an 8GB model from Handtec costing £387, which doesn't even come with the free Galaxy Tab goodies.

Overall, prospective customers can save nearly £40 compared to the next cheapest offer at Amazon.

The Tab weighs in at 390g, has a 7-inch 1024x600 pixels WSVGA touchscreen, runs a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, has 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, Wi-Fi, 3G, a 3-megapixel camera and runs on Android 2.2.
