Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0) Student Edition Bundle now official with sales starting Sunday
Earlier this month, we told you about the special back to school deal that Samsung is offering students. The Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0) Student Edition Bundle includes the tablet in white, a keyboard dock and a USB peripheral connector all for the price of the tablet itself, $249.99. The bundle goes on sale starting Sunday and while we originally told you that it would be available at Best Buy, it will also be on sale at Amazon, Tiger Direct, Costco and Fry’s Electronics. The offer runs through September 1st.

Samsung notes that with the keyboard and the USB connector, students can add a plug-in mouse and get to work writing those important term papers. Afterward, they can use the tablet to relax while watching their favorite movies.

In case you forgot about the tablet's specs, the Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 (7.0) is equipped with a 7inch Super PLS LCD display with resolution of 1024 x 600 and a rather low pixel density of 170ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage aboard.  A 32GB capacity microSD slot can expand storage and a 4000mAh battery keeps the gears turning. A 3MP camera on back captures video in 720p at 30fps and there is a VGA front facing camera for self portraits and video chat. The version of the tablet available with the bundle has Wi-Fi connectivity only, and comes out of the box with Android 4.0.
