The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is, by most standards, the best Android tablet available for the price right now. That's what we thought when the tablet was available for $250. Today, though, on eBay's Daily Deals, the tablet is available for $219.99, or about $30 off. If you're in the market for a 7" tablet, the cost of an average night out at the movies is the difference between the Kindle Fire and this full Android 4.0 experience.


The deal is available for today only. This tablet was already a fantastic deal, though we're all eager to see what Google might announce at I/O. Rumors have been circulating that Google means to release a tablet, or at least sell a Nexus-branded slate, via its own store, much as its done with the Galaxy Nexus. Until we hear anything, though, the Tab 2 seven incher remains the best, cheapest Android tablet you can get right now, and at $220, it's an even better deal.

    Snagged one of these on release day and did some comparison to my $139 refirbed  Kindle Fire. I was surprised at how much more responsive the Fire was. The Fire even performed better on the AnTuTu Benchmark. The Galaxy is an awesome tablet for the price though.

    I picked one up to use in my car.  Had to return it, as It connected to the OBDII reader on the first try, but each subsequent connections it'd ask for the PIN but never connect repeating the request for PIN, over and over again.  Could only get it to reconnect after unpairing the two devices and rebooting the tablet.  As I have a phone and xoom that does everything else I wanted, I had no need for it.  So back it went.

    Touchwiz means that its not full ICS. Its pretty damn close, but I'm sorry, its not full ICS

      I actually prefer the TouchWiz experience on a tablet. And with the SGS III, on a phone too. They've learned what people like and what they hate, and while certain things I still would want changed (like the color of the icons in the notification area on phones), for the most part, TW adds quite a few great features.

    I wish the front camera was better than just VGA resolution, otherwise this would be a no-brainer. Could make a great mother's day present though.

     As far as buying/saving on eBay goes:

    If you see an item that you want listed in auction format, send the seller a message asking if they will accept $x to end the auction early and sell the item to you. If that doesn’t work, use a sniping service such as Bidball.com to bid for you. It’ll bid in the last few seconds, helping to save $ and avoid shill bidding.

    If there is a particular item that you want that is relatively rare on eBay or goes fast when one is listed, use ebuyersedge.com to set up a saved eBay search for it. You’d get an e-mail whenever a match is listed. You can use the price, category, exclude word, etc. filters to narrow down the results that you get in the e-mails. Excellent for “Buy It Now”s priced right.

    If the item that you’re looking for is difficult to spell, try a misspelling search site like Typojoe.com to find some deals with items that have main keywords misspelled in the title. Other interested buyers may never see them.
