Samsung Galaxy Tab now only $299 outright in Australia
The Samsung Galaxy Tab was the first Android-powered tablet to be released by a major manufacturer, and as such has seen quite reasonable sales levels so far. One can presume though that the onslaught of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets that keep being announced each week now has not done good things for those sales numbers, especially considering that the Galaxy Tab runs Android 2.2 Froyo and is likely never going to get updated to a tablet-optimized version of the operating system.
As such, we’re starting to see the Galaxy Tab discounted in various places. Today’s great deal comes from Australia, and is available from both JB Hi-Fi and Telstra. These companies will sell you a 7-inch Galaxy Tab for just $299 outright – no contract required. And no, this isn’t the Wi-Fi-only version. It has an unlocked 3G mobile data radio as well, which you can use on any carrier you please.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab has a 7-inch 1024×600 capacitive touchscreen, a 1 GHz single-core Hummingbird processor, 16 GB of internal storage, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and that unlocked internal SIM slot.
