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.
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.
