Verizon Wireless to offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

At the moment, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 offered by Verizon will set you back a princely sum of $549.99 contract free. Even a preowned one will set you back $489.99.

But from August 17th, any current (or potential) Verizon customer will now be able to pick up the new Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 for $350, contract free.

There’s no major changes to the specification or the connectivity options available, with the Tab 2 7.0 offering 4G, Android 4.0 and front and rear facing cameras. Storage has been cut from 16GB in the Tab 7.7 to 8GB in the Tab 2 and the processor is 200MHz slower. There is support for up to 64GB microSD cards.

It may be a slightly smaller device, with a couple of minor hardware changes, but it’s the price that should convince people to go with the Tab 2 7.0 as their weapon of choice in the tablet wars. It remains to be seen whether or not Verizon Wireless will continue to offer the Tab 7.7.

Or you can get the same tablet in WiFi only for $250 at Best Buy/NewEgg. Who needs 3G with WiFi available almost everywhere?

There is a pretty major difference between the 7.0 and the 7.7 that everyone seems to be overlooking. The 7.7 has a 1280x800 Super AMOLED+ display compared to the 1024x600 TFT screen on the 7.0. Don't underestimate the value of the screen. It is much more noticeable than the minor spec differences we geeks typically focus on.
