A Great iPad 2-Beating Deal! 32GB Galaxy Tab Now Costs £230

Our price alert solution has informed us that the price of the 32GB Samsung Galaxy Tab (Wi-Fi) has dropped to a penny under £230 at Ebuyer (via Ebay), a price that includes free delivery.

The price drop (opens in new tab) coincides with the launch today nationwide of the RIM Blackberry PlayBook tablet, a tablet with a very similar configuration, but which costs more than twice the price at £479.

The Galaxy Tab, which was launched back in September 2010, comes with 16GB onboard memory augmented by another 16GB microSD card, which is worth £16 on its own. This version comes with Wi-Fi only which means that you will need a VoIP client like Skype or Rebtel in order to make or receive calls.

Samsung's first tablet, which has then been complemented by the Tab 10.1 and the Tab 8.9, has a 7-inch 1024x600 pixel display, a three-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front facing one, a single core Samsung Hummingbird Cortex-A8 SoC clocked at 1GHz, 512MB RAM, Wi-Fi, up to seven hours battery life, AGPS, a microUSB port, Android OS 2.2 (soon upgradable to 2.3.4), complete with support for Flash 10.1.

This version of the Galaxy Tab is still the only Samsung tablet on sale, four months after the 10.1-inch version was announced at MWC in Barcelona.
