Samsung seems focused on reaching all corners of the Smartphone market and are almost satisfying all the needs of different individuals. The South Korean company has not been shy in breaking the mold and in releasing tablets in different sizes and suited for different uses and sure enough it is rewarding for the company in terms of market penetration, revenue and brand reputation.
The newest addition to the Galaxy family is the successor of the original Galaxy tan, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 student edition. This tablet follows the release of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 a couple of months ago and is designed and priced for school goers. There were news earlier that the tablet would be available for purchase beginning August 19th but the good news is that the tablet is now available on best Buy. If you wanted to get one, you could as well order it now.
This new tablet is designed just like the Galaxy tab 2 7.0 and features a 7 inch display and is just 10.5 mm thick. This is almost as thin as the nexus 7 and weighs almost the same. It also boasts of a dual core 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB inbuilt storage, a rear 3MP camera and a front VGA camera. The tablet comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
So, what makes this tablet a special student edition? Bundled accessories include a Bluetooth keyboard dock that has a stand and a USB connector. This may not be much considering the low specs of the tablet but for a price of $250, It is worth getting it for class work. I feel though that Samsung should have equipped the tablet with a better camera since students take lots of pictures, preferably an 8MP and more inbuilt storage, say 16GB. 8GB is just too little to record class videos or store multimedia files such as presentations for an entire semester.
What do you think about the student edition tablet? Would you churn out $250 for it? Let us know in the comments section why or why you wouldn’t.
