The deal: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - large price drop on previous gen Android tablet - $693.00
We don’t know if this is the start of a trend, but following yesterday’s big price drop on a once expensive Android tablet is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 64GB 3G for $693. The normal RRP is $829, so that’s a saving of $136 in total. Even today it’s very light at 565 grams and really slim at 8.6mm thick, making it superbly portable as well as good value.
Another tick in the Galaxy Tab 10.1’s favour is the screen quality. The 10.1in (1,280 x 800 resolution) screen has great viewing angles and rich colour depth, and is arguably better than that of the Apple iPad 2. The only real negative is the port variety: you get a headphone jack, a SIM card slot and a charging port. While the strong portability does help, it’s something that may frustrate some users. Otherwise it’s got the hardware features you’d expect, including front and rear cameras along with an integrated microphone. There’s also 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi to complement the 3G functionality.
Right now the Galaxy Tab 10.1 runs Android Honeycomb 3.2, but according to Samsung Australia:
“We are currently working closely with the operators on the ICS updates for the Tab 10.1. We anticipate being able to release these to consumers within Q2.”
So, this tablet definitely has some life left in it even with the inevitable tidal wave of superior devices later this year.
