Samsung has been facing tough competition from the budget electronics manufacturers in India from quite some time. The company even though has been the undisputed leader in the smartphone segment, it is the tablet segment where it has had to work hard to maintain its position at the zenith. And in a bid to maintain their dominance, they have started taking the orders of their least priced tablet, the Galaxy Tab 2’s Wi-Fi only version at a price of Rs.13,900.
Now this makes the device compete with the Indian manufacturers on the price point and the device comes from a MNC rather than an Indian brand which surely is a big plus for the tablet. The tablet will ship with the latest version of Android, which will be Jelly Bean and shall reach the shelves in the first week of February and if you order now, you’ll get a free flip cover with device and you’ll be amongst the first ones to lay their hands on the device.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P311 will be powered by 1 GHz dual core processor and will come with 1GB of RAM which shall make the device a breeze to use. The internal storage capacity of 16 GB will be another argument in favor of the tablet and the ability to expand the memory by another 32 GB will just make the deal all the more sweeter. It will miss out on 3G connectivity and GSM connectivity to keep the price tag on the lower side.
However the age old companion Bluetooth will be present for giving you another connectivity option. The Galaxy Tab 2 P311 will have a 3M snapper at the back for that rare photography but would not win you any awards. There will be a front facing VGA camera to complement the rear camera and can be used for video calling and vanity checks. The competition is heating up fast and Samsung has started to feel the heat. And the winner is- The average Indian consumer.
