Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 coming to the US with a price drop

Galaxy_tab_2

Last week, we heard that Samsung had delayed its Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet because the manufacturer didn't have its TouchWiz'd version of Ice Cream Sandwich ready just yet. But today, Samsung announced that the tablet will be released on April 22nd – and with a hard-to-beat price, to boot.

In just 11 days, you'll be able to pick up the Ice Cream Sandwich tablet for a low $249. Keeping in mind that the second Galaxy Tab will include a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, up to 32GB of internal storage, and a 7-inch 1024 x 600 display, Samsung's newest pocketable tablet might just be the best deal around for a while. 

That is, if you're looking for a true Android experience. The Kindle Fire may be cheaper and have similar specs, but Amazon basically forked Android to provide an Amazon-branded media-centric user experience to help the online retailer sell more tablets. There's no doubt that Amazon is losing money on each Fire sold, but it can more than make it up by selling more content. 

Is this your dream tablet? A nicely-equipped, Ice Cream Sandwich tablet for a bargain tablet price? If so, let us know in the comments.
