Samsung’s latest tablet the Galaxy Tab 2, the 7 inch version has recently been spotted at the QVC web store with a price tag of $309.96. This device is available in the 8 GB model here and has no cellular connectivity, relying strictly on WiFi. Here’s the offer:

This doesn’t seem to be a preorder page, so the device is truly available right now, purchased and shipped to you in mere days. Of course, this could be a page posted by mistake or too early by the retailer, so the only way to find out is to actually order one. Last I heard, the two Galaxy Tab 2 units, the 10 incher and 7 incher were supposed to be delayed because of troubles with Android 4.0 ICS, so this listing doesn’t quite make sense. What do you think about this pricing?

I think it’s reasonably good, but not if you compare the slate to the Nook Tablet or the Amazon Kindle Fire. Also, the specs of the Galaxy Tab 2 are underwhelming… The device measures 10.5mm in thickness, weighs 344 grams and adopts a glossy rim around the edges. It’s totally made out of plastic and also features a proprietary 30 pin connector, microSD card slot, speakers at the bottom and a 7 inch 1024 x 600 pixel screen. WiFi, a 3.2 MP camera, 1 GHz dual core CPU and 1 GB of RAM complete the unappealing specs list.

  • It’s as if the internals all came out of the leftover parts bin. Screen resolution sucks. Considering the 7.7, we should be seeing 1200×800 at this size. All in all, you would be better off paying $199 for the RIM Playbook.

    In Euroland this will be at least 350euros if not more.
