PCWorld Undercuts Tesco With Cheapest Galaxy Tab At £341.20

DSGi has been swift to follow Tesco's decision to slash the price of the popular Samsung Galaxy Tab and is now offering the smartphone tablet for £18 less than the next cheapest price.

Using the voucher code 5PC (opens in new tab), customers will be able to cut the price of the tablet from £359.20 to £341.20, a five per cent discount.

PC World previously sold the tablet for £407.49 and the original suggested retail price of the Galaxy tab was pegged at a jaw dropping £799.99.

As for all Galaxy Tab currently on the market, this model comes with 16GB memory and an entertainment pack from Samsung worth £200.

The tablet itself is based on the Samsung Galaxy S handset. It is only 12mm thick, comes with a Samsung Hummingbird ARM-based Cortex A8 processor clocked at 1GHz.

It runs on Android 2.2, has a 3-megapixel rear camera and a front one as well. There's a microSD card reader, Wi-Fi, 3G connectivity by default, a 7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen and battery life is said to be great.

The irony now is that, assuming you can foot the £341.20 from the onset, buying the device and a SIM-only tariff costs you much cheaper than buying the tablet with a traditional tariff.
