Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 down to £210

The Google Nexus 7 can be blamed for yet another tablet price drop as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 tablet can now be purchased from as little as £210 with free delivery from online retailer Expansys.

The tablet, which was launched in the second half of 2011 and is also known as the P7310, comes with a dual-core system-on-chip, the Nvidia Tegra 2, clocked at 1GHz. There’s 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage and an 8.9in 1,280 x 800 pixels display that uses PLS technology.

Other features include a thickness of 8.6mm, Android 3.2 Honeycomb with TouchWiz UX user interface, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, a microUSB port, a 3.2-megapixel rear camera (with video recording) and a 2-megapixel front-facing one, TV-Out and a 6000mAh battery.

Expansys is also selling an HDMI adaptor for the tablet for £22 a keyboard dock for £35 and a multimedia dock for £30.

In comparison, both the Motorola XOOM 2 media edition and the Google Nexus 7 16GB cost £10 less than the tablet. It’s worth noting that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 2.0 and the Google Nexus 7 8GB can be had for less than £160 and the former even has a microSD card slot.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
