UK Retailer PC World has placed the white version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 on preorder for £300. That's way less than the original 10.1in model which was launched last year at Mobile World Congress (check our review of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1)
The new model - the GT-P5110 - sports the same configuration with a few minor changes. There's still a dual core processor clocked at 1GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage and a microSD card (which means that the total capacity can reach up to 80GB), a 10.1in 1,280 x 800 pixels display, a three megapixel rear camera and a VGA front facing one, Wi-Fi, microUSB, Bluetooth and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
As for the rest of the Galaxy Tab range, Samsung has bundled ChatON, Readers Hub, Music Hub, Game Hub, Video Hub and Samsung Apps with it.
This particular model is 9.7mm thick and weighs just under 600g. It is a notch down the 10.1in version of the Galaxy Note which now the new top of the range tablet from Samsung.
The tablet will face a slew of rivals from the likes of Archos or other little-known brands from South East Asia which are flooding the market with sub £200 tablets equipped with Ice Cream Sandwich but with a worse configuration.
