Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) could start at $400
Samsung has a few new 10 inch tablets on the way this year. One is is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 which will feature a 1.4 GHz dual core processor and a digital pen. But the other is a cheaper model called the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1).
The listing has been removed, but it’s too early to tell if it was inaccurate or just premature.
Either way, what was know is that the tablet is expected to have a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel PLS display, a 1 GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.0 operating system.
Unlike the original Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the new model will have a microSD card slot. But it will still be a relatively thin and light tablet, measuring 10.1″ x 6.9″ x 0.38″ and weighing about 1.3 pounds.
According to the original product announcement the tablet is expected to come in 16GB or 32GB varieties — but the Office Depot page showed an 8GB model, which might explain the $399.99 starting price.
The original 10 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab started at $499.99, although these days you can pick one up for much cheaper than that if you shop around.
