The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) tablet is due for a facelift after 12 months. The Google Nexus 7 or the latest Amazon Kindle Fire tablets are more powerful competitors that have eaten into its market share though it boasts a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and a TI OMAP 4 dual core processor.
Samsung have announced a limited edition Garnet Red Edition Galaxy Tab accompanied by a free case. The price has been dropped to $220 and will be available at Walmart, Amazon, Office Depot, TigerDirect and Toys R Us.
The tablet features a microSD card slot and a built-in IR port enabling you to use it as a remote control for your television.
It weighs about 12 ounces, measures about 0.4 inches thick, and features WiFi and Bluetooth. It runs on the Android Jelly Bean software.
