Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 now down to £220

The market of Android tablets has been rocked by the arrival of the Google Nexus 7 which provides extraordinary capabilities at a very low entry point.

But for customers looking for a tablet with a much bigger screen, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 may be a model worth considering, especially as Samsung has a £50 cashback scheme going on till the end of October.

You can grab the tablet for only £219.98 including delivery from Dabs, the cheapest we’ve seen for this device which was only launched at the beginning of the year.

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes with a 10.1in 1,280 x 800 PLS TFT display with a dual-core system-on-chip clocked at 1GHz.

It also has 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot (which takes up 32GB microSD cards that are available for £10) , GPS, GLONASS, a 3-megapixel rear camera, a VGA front facing one, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, a 7.000mAh battery and Android 4.0 ICS.

Compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, this version is thicker at 9.7mm and a tad heavier at 587g. And compared to the 16GB Google Nexus 7 tablet, it has a much bigger screen, a rear camera and an expansion slot, but a slower SoC.
