Verizon will offer $350 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 beginning August 17

verizon will offer 7 inch samsung galaxy tab 2 from august 17 for 350 0

If you’re looking for a 7-inch tablet then you could do worse than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0). The pint-sized tablet packs a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 7-inch display with 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, and a 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera. It also has 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, and runs on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. While it doesn’t have the absolute latest version of Android, it is operating on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. At $350, the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is Verizon’s cheapest 4G tablet option.

While a purchasing a plan is separate from the $350 cost of the tablet, there are good news for existing Verizon customers. If you have already signed up on Verizon’s Share Everything plan, you can add a tablet for an extra $10 per month, and it can feed off your existing allowance. New plans start at $40 for 4GB per month for shareable data devices.

We’ve yet to review the tinier version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, but if it’s anything like its big brother, the 10-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, it should be a pretty modest piece of gadget for a slightly more affordable price.

Still, with the 7-inch tablet market heating up, it’s hard to see past the Google Nexus 7. At $199, the Nexus 7 looks a lot better than the Tab 2 (7.0) unless the microSD slot or the Verizon network are vital for you. We’ve also seen Sprint offer the ZTE Optik tablet free with any smartphone, Barnes & Noble slashing Nook prices, and persistent rumors about an iPad mini and a Kindle Fire 2 in the last couple of weeks. If any of that sounds interesting to you, it might be wise to hang fire on the Tab 2 (7.0) at the moment.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) will go on sale on August 17 both in stores and online.
