Samsung has announced a Wi-Fi only version of its Tab 2. The device is priced at Rs. 13,900 and has the same specifications as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3100.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 now has a Wi-Fi only version. Called the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 311 it is priced at Rs. 13,900 and has the same specifications as the Galaxy Tab 2 P3100 with the exception of a SIM card.
To bring you up to speed, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 311 has a 7-inch display with 1024x600 pixel resolution, 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16 GB storage expandable via a microSD card, 3.15MP rear camera & VGA video call camera, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The tablet runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The launch of the Galaxy Tab 2 changes the dynamics of the budget tablet market. We have seen quite a few tablets launch in the Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 15,000 price bracket. We have the likes of the iberry Auxus Core X2 3G tablet, Spice Stellar Pad, Videocon VT10 and the recently announced WickedLeak Wammy Magnus. All these devices are made by manufacturers present only in the budget space. Acer was the first premium device manufacturer to launch a sub Rs. 10k tablet and now we have Samsung with a Rs. 13,900 device.
The original Galaxy Tab 2 P3100 still sells for Rs. 19,300. You can read our in-depth review of the device here.
Samsung is rumoured to introduce the Tab 3 as well as the Galaxy Note 8. You can take a look at the leaked specifications of the Note 8 here. The devices may either be unveiled at MWC 2013, which is just around the corner. But we suspect that the new tablets will be unveiled along with the Samsung Galaxy S IV at the Samsung event expected to take place in March.
If you are interested in picking up the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 311 can do so on the Samsung India store here.
