Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7-inch “Student Edition” hits Best Buy already

Last week we reported on a rather impressive deal from the folks at Best Buy. This deal contained no less than a 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet, a USB adapter, and even a keyboard dock all for the low price of $249. Now it looks to be in stock, and some stores are already selling this excellent back to school deal. Check it out!

It's being called the Galaxy Tab 2 Student Edition, and contains a Galaxy Tab 2 7-inch tablet, running a dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, SD card, camera and Ice Cream Sandwich. Basically similar to the Nexus 7 only not as powerful, and a little behind the OS times. This is actually an excellent deal considering the tablet initially debuted for $249. Now you can get this entire bundle for the same price. It was supposed to be available on the 19th, but could be available starting today.

According to Phandroid one lucky reader already found them "in stock" and for sale at Best Buy, and $249 got him the awesome Student Edition back-to-school bundle below. He was kind enough to do an unboxing video too. If you're interested in this deal from Best Buy and Samsung, have a look.

This is Samsung's latest Android tablet, coming in at 7-inches. It doesn't have Jelly Bean or a quad-core processor like the Nexus 7 but it's super thin and has full micro-SD support and even a rear camera. The video above should have shown you all you needed to know. They're offering this student edition with the tablet, and a 30-pin to USB adapter, as well as a Bluetooth keyboard dock and stand. Pretty good deal if you ask us. Full specs on the Galaxy Tab 2 7-inch can be seen below, as well as our previous coverage.

Head down to your nearest Best Buy and pick this great deal up today. Enjoy!

    It’s not an excellent deal. The Nexus 7 trumps in every way.

      Yea except the Samsung has micro-SD for extra storage, a rear camera, infrared for remote functions, and is thinner.

      I agree and LOVE my Nexus 7, but some want different things

      Can you expand your memory in a Nexus 7? Just wondering if the Nexus trumps that, or how about take pictures with a rear camera? I love the Nexus, but it really only “trumps” a Kindle Fire.

    Hey,whats the difference between the normal and the student edition?

  • natethan

    Hi, I was just wondering if I could get 3g or 4g on the tablet. I have the student one I think. Its not with any carrier. I want to know if I could just bring it to tmobile and they could let me get a plan for it or something. Anything helps thanks.
