Samsung cuts price of Galaxy Tab 2


Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-2Samsung seems to be on a price cutting spree. The company has cut the price of both the versions of its Galaxy Tab 2 in India. Galaxy Tab 2 P3110, which was launched in India earlier this month at Rs 13,900, now costs Rs 12,750 officially and comes with a free Bluetooth headset. Samsung has also reduced the price of Galaxy Tab 2 P3100 to Rs 16,499 from Rs 19,500.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3100 comes with a 7-inch PLS touchscreen with 1024x600p resolution and approximately 170ppi pixel density. The device ships with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) layered with TouchWiz UI out-of-the-box and is upgradeable to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). It is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor coupled with 1GB RAM and comes with 16GB onboard memory, with microSD support up to 32GB.

The Galaxy Tab 2 P3100 sports a 3.15MP camera on the back, while a VGA unit is located in front. Connectivity suite of the device consists of 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and microUSB 2.0. This device is powered by a 4,000mAh battery that offers up to 30 hours of talk time over 2G network.

Galaxy Tab 2 P3110 shares all the hardware specifications with the P3100 model, but does not support 3G internet access. The other difference is that it is powered by Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) out-of-the-box.

Earlier in February, Samsung slashed the prices of its two flagship smartphones – Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III. This was followed by a price cut of Galaxy Camera, launched in the country just two months ago.
