The current price of the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 makes it a more wallet-friendly option for India with its Rs 16,499 and lower. The reductions in the original retail amounts have been put into effect and the Wi-Fi-only as well as 3G models in the series are available for lower budgets.
This one is the latest member in the family to get a reduction in its rate. The first cut was applied back in January for the S3, the S2 and the original Note as well as the Ace Duos and the S Duos. Earlier this month, the company placed another reduction on its flagship smartphone and the Note 2, bringing their retail tags down to Rs 28,900 and Rs 34,900, respectively.
The tablet in question was launched for around Rs 19,500 with 3G connectivity and it is now available for as low as Rs 16,499. The Wi-Fi only version recently entered the market for 13,900 and as of today, it can be picked up for Rs 12,750. Both devices comes with dual core processors clocked at 1GHz, 1GB of RAM and run on the Android Jelly Bean platform. For some cases an update to the latest OS may be required.
The front features a 7-inch display and a VGA webcam, while the rear flaunts a 3MP AF camera. Users will have 16GB of built-in storage and a microSD card slot which supports up to 32GB. A 4,000mAh powers both gadgets up, although activity details for the 3G version have only been provided. On a single charge, the slate can deliver 20 hours of talktime.
In recent news, the South Korean conglomerate launched its own EMI scheme in the country. Through this promotion, those seeking to buy a Galaxy smartphone such as the Note 2 will be able to do so by making fixed payments for a certain period. The device is currently available for 12 equal fees of 2,999 every month. The purpose of the offer is apparently to hit back at Apple making the iPhone 5 available for a Rs 16,990 down payment with 12 monthly installments of Rs 2,376.
The Tab 2 in India can even be acquired at reduced retail prices through Flipkart, Snapdeal, Infibeam and Saholic.
