With the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) hitting store shelves on April 22nd
, Verizon is looking to burn off some inventory of the original 7-in Galaxy tab. Right now on Verizon’s website the 7-inch Galaxy Tab is available for $229.99 minus a $180 promotional discount making the device just $49.99 with a 2-year contract.
The Android 2.2 powered tablet has a 7-inch 1024x600 display, 1GHz processor, 2GB memory, 16 GB microSD card, 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) will be priced at a competitive $250, so it’s safe to assume that Verizon realized that not too many people would spring $230 for the old model. At just $50 though, the original 7-inch Galaxy Tab is a great value and offers a lot more for your money than similarly priced budget tablets.
