The Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet - the P1000 - is now available for a mere £274, a fraction of its initial selling price, from an Amazon Marketplace reseller; that's only £44 more compared to the cheapest Wi-Fi only Galaxy Tab tablet and nearly £70 less than the next cheapest 3G model.
The only downside (opens in new tab) we can note is that the tablet is refurbished, but it still comes with a new condition retail box as well as 12 month manufacturer's warranty and the reseller themself has more than 7000 positive ratings.
Unlike the one sold by Ebuyer, this model doesn't come with an additional 16GB microSD card so you're stuck with 16GB storage although you can always augment it at a later stage.
The rest of the specification is well known; a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with a 1024x600 pixel resolution, two cameras, a 3.2-megapixel one at the back and a 1.3-megapixel one in the front, a 1Ghz single core Samsung Hummingbird SoC based on the Cortex A8, 1GB RAM, a 4000mAh battery, BT 3.0, A-GPS, HDMI and Composite, Wi-Fi, the ability to make calls and send texts and that microSD card slot.
At 380g, it is lighter than most of its rivals and its 12mm thickness means that you will be able to carry it around comfortably. The best part though is that Samsung has pledged to support it and has launched Android OS Gingerbread 2.3 for it.
