With the introduction of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Samsung has entered the low-cost tablet space with an excellent entrant. Priced at $249, it’s only $50 more than the $199 Kindle Fire from Amazon. The price alone is enough to tempt many users, but $50 is a significant gap when budgets are tight. Is the Galaxy Tab 2 worth the $50 premium?
Consumers looking for a 7-inch tablet have several to choose from and now many good choices under $300. Price isn't the only factor, of course. You also have to consider how easy it is to use, access to content, the operating system, and app selection.
