Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 now down to £220

The market of Android tablets has been rocked by the arrival of the Google Nexus 7 which provides extraordinary capabilities at a very low entry point.

But for customers looking for a tablet with a much bigger screen, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 may be a model worth considering, especially as Samsung has a £50 cashback scheme going on till the end of October.

You can grab the tablet for only £219.98 including delivery from Dabs, the cheapest we’ve seen for this device which was only launched at the beginning of the year.

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes with a 10.1in 1,280 x 800 PLS TFT display with a dual-core system-on-chip clocked at 1GHz.

It also has 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot (which takes up 32GB microSD cards that are available for £10) , GPS, GLONASS, a 3-megapixel rear camera, a VGA front facing one, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, a 7.000mAh battery and Android 4.0 ICS.

Compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, this version is thicker at 9.7mm and a tad heavier at 587g. And compared to the 16GB Google Nexus 7 tablet, it has a much bigger screen, a rear camera and an expansion slot, but a slower SoC.

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.
