Samsung targets the smart set with Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Student Edition

By Hammad Saleem

Samsung [1] has announced its Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Student Edition [2] with a price tag of $350, though it really hasn’t been all that long since the Korean giant released Galaxy Tab 3. The device comes in a package that also includes a Bluetooth keyboard and a desktop dock that makes it easier to use it as a notebook.

The desktop dock also allows users to charge the tablet while using it. It’ll be available at major retailers including Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon and many others soon, and technically you’ll be saving almost a $100 on this deal, considering that the freebies included in the package cost more than that.
