Students have small budgets. We get that. Apparently, so does Samsung. So they took one of their most affordable tablets - the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0  - and threw it in a box with the Tab keyboard and USB adapter, but kept the price tag the same as the tablet itself: $250.


Essentially, you're buying the tablet and getting the keyboard and USB adapter completely free, and that's a pretty solid deal. While the Tab 2 7.0 may not be as powerful as the competing Nexus 7, it's still nothing to scoff at in terms of hardware (and Eric actually liked it when he reviewed it):

  • 7-inch 1024x600 TFT display
  • 1GHz dual-core TI processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • 3.2MP rear shooter, VGA front camera
  • Android 4.0 with Touchwiz UX

And the keyboard? I actually took it for a spin back in the day on the Tab 10.1 (after the Touchwiz update), and readily recommend it. Pair all that with the USB adapter, which turns the Tab's proprietary Samsung connector into a full-size USB port, and you have a pretty versatile workstation for getting things done quickly and easily.

The bundle is available now from most major retailers, but we've linked a couple down below if you prefer to order online.
