“The education market is a significant priority for Samsung, and we are very pleased to deliver a bundle that is sure to be appealing to just about any student at a very competitive price point,” explained Travis Merrill, Director of Marketing, Galaxy Tab, Samsung Electronics America. “A busy student can achieve a PC-like setup in the dorm room, yet still pop the GALAXY Tab 2 out of the dock and slip it into a pocket for usage while on the go. It truly is the smarter way to learn.”
The extra perks with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Student Edition bundle are aimed to provide a more PC-like experience through a physical keyboard as well as USB adapter which enables users to plug in various peripherals including flash drives and mice.
