Samsung is getting prepared for the school year it seems after we’ve spotted a student bundle deal headed to a Best Buy store near you. Their somewhat popular tablet refresh, the Galaxy Tab 2 in the 7-inch flavor is getting a nicely priced bundle deal just in time for back to school shoppers. Head on down past the break for more details.
It might not be the best tablet around, especially with the Nexus 7 coming onto the scene, but it still packs a decent bunch. You’ll get a sleek design, 7-inch display, a dual-core processor, micro SD support, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich all for a low price. The Tab 2 7-inch debuted at $249, but it seems they are sticking to that same low price while offering a few included accessories.
Over at Best Buy you’ll be able to snag the Galaxy Tab along with an included Bluetooth keyboard dock and stand. This will keep you typing away with ease in class, and do all sorts of other things like holding it up for reading. Then Samsung tossed in a USB connector to use their proprietary 30-pin port for regular sized USB devices. All of this essentially comes free considering it’s the same $249 price as the tablet initially went for sale at.
According to the folks at Engadget this tablet “student edition” will be available at Best Buy stores nationwide starting on August 19th. It might not be as powerful as the Nexus 7, but it’s thinner, has a keyboard dock, and supports SD cards. This is a pretty good deal if you ask us, and most likely it’ll see Jelly Bean at some point too.
