Earlier this week we received more than a couple of reports that the new Galaxy Tab 2, both the 7-inch and 10-inch models from Samsung had been delayed until late April. While things still seem to be on track for a late April release we now have a leaked price too. The folks from Engadget spotted the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 2 at Office Depot of all places, showing a price tag of only $399 for the Ice Cream Sandwich tablet.
The Galaxy Tab 2 is Samsung’s second attempt at a 10-inch tablet and has a few changes over the original. Those include a slightly thinner chassis, and front facing speaker grills similar to a few models we’ve seen in Germany as of late. Under the hood is the same 1280 x 800 resolution screen and 1.0 GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, so no quad-core here but still plenty fast.
The page has since been pulled, but the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 was spotted at Office Depot’s online store for only $399. A sign that Samsung might finally be realizing they’ve been asking a bit too much for their tablets. After a second look you’ll quickly notice that is for the 8GB model, and sadly the 16GB will probably still be $449. Most likely they’ll also offer a 32GB model priced around $499, which seems high given the price of better tablets like the Transformer Prime.
The Tab 2 has already cleared the FCC, including once with AT&T bands and should be hitting stores in the US soon. Once Samsung makes any official announcements we’ll be sure to update with all the details.
