Snag An Open Box 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 For Just $129.99 On eBay ($100 Off)

Earlier this month we saw the Galaxy Tab A 9.7 available for $215, a significant discount from its usually high price. This brought it down to only slightly less than what the 8-inch model typically costs. Except now folks in the US can pick up the latter on eBay for even less.

[Deal Alert] eBay Has An Open Box 32GB Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 With A Free Samsung Case For $215 (Around $200 Off)

If you're in the market for a good deal on a mid-range tablet... well, Samsung's Galaxy Tab A series is actually not a very good choice. Between lackluster specs (especially that 1024x768 screen) and a relatively high retail price, it's a long way away from being any kind of deal. But when Samsung overprices its tablets it usually doesn't take very long for market forces to get retailers to drop the price a bit. Such is the case with one eBay merchant, now selling the 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab A for just $214.99. This deal is available in the US only.

[Update: Available Now] A T-Mobile Version Of Samsung's 8-Inch Galaxy Tab A Has Popped Up On The Carrier's Website

Way back in April Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Tab A, a new tablet line with a 4:3 screen and metal body that screams "iPad alternative" in every language. So far we haven't heard of any carriers taking a bite, but Samsung's tablets are so ubiquitous that it was more or less inevitable. T-Mobile hasn't officially announced a Galaxy Tab A for the "Uncarrier," but the company's support site now has a listing for a branded version.

[Deal Alert] Trade In Any Working Tablet, Get $100 When You Purchase The New Samsung Galaxy Tab A At Best Buy

The announcement of Samsung's new Galaxy Tab A didn't generate much excitement because of its not-so-low-end price. However, you can now grab it more cheaply at Best Buy. You will receive $100 for trading in a working tablet so long as you also purchase the Tab A, which starts at $230. There are a few caveats to look out for, though.


Why yes, that is a whole lot of fine print. Let's break it down.

  • The $100 comes in the form of a $50 coupon towards the Tab A and a $50 Best Buy gift card. It isn't specified whether you can use the gift card at checkout.

Samsung Announces The Galaxy Tab A For The US, Disappointing Specs In A Metal Chassis Starting At $230 May 1st

With the Galaxy Tab A, Samsung is giving its budget tablet line-up a touch of class. This is no dinky Tab 4. This 4:3 slate has a metal chassis! And now it's coming to the US. On May 1st, Americans will be able to buy the device from the likes of Amazon, Best Buy, and HH Gregg.

Unfortunately, the specs remain pretty underwhelming. Sure, we can make do with a 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. The 5MP camera may not be all that great, but whatever, it's a tablet. But a 1024 by 768 screen resolution...

Samsung Quietly Announces The Mid-Range Galaxy Tab A With Metal Design And A 4:3 Screen

The Galaxy Tab A has been whispered about for the last several weeks, and now it's official... at least in Russia. Samsung's newest tablets are slotting into the space previously occupied by the Galaxy Tab 4 line, so they're mid-range devices. However, it's important to note these tablets have 4:3 screens like the Nexus 9 or the iPad. That makes them instantly more interesting in my opinion.
