The arrival of the Google Nexus 7 tablet has proved to be devastating for the average selling price (and hence profit margin) of Android tablets across the spectrum, and Samsung could be feeling the pinch the most.
The Korean Chaebol has been arguably the more successful Android tablet vendor with its Galaxy Tab range, but the £159 tablet from Google is forcing Samsung's hand to shave even more off its Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 device.
Buy the tablet (available in white or silver) from £190 including delivery, claim a £30 cashback and get a device that arguably has more expansion options but is ultimately less powerful than the Google Nexus 7.
The device runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (rather than Jelly bean). It has a 7in, 1,024 x 600 resolution display, 1GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, 8GB of storage, a dual-core processor, (the TI OMAP4430 clocked at 1GHz), a 4,000mAh battery plus a front VGA and rear 3.2-megapixel camera.
