Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet now down to £279

This tablet got a best buy award from us and has seen its selling price fall down significantly since its launch.

You can buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8010 tablet for as little as £279, a price that includes free delivery but not Nectar points. The offer is available on Tesco's eBay outlet and the tablet is a refurbished model that carries a full one year warranty.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N8010ZWAXEO) is essentially a bigger version of the Galaxy Note 2 but without voice functionality. It comes with a quad-core Exynos 4412 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz. There's also a 10.1in 1,280 x 800 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 1.9-megapixel front facing one, a microSD card slot, 16GB onboard storage, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (upgradable to Jelly Bean), Adobe Photoshop Touch, a massive 7,000mAh battery and a weight of less than 600g.

We expect the Galaxy Note 10.1 to be superseded by a better model later this year, one that may be nearer in design to the Google Nexus 10 which is manufactured by Samsung.

The company has also bundled a number of features exclusive to this Note family including a multiscreen button and a versatile S Pen stylus. You can read our review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet here.
