Original Samsung Galaxy Tab going cheap at Asda

It was only a couple of days ago that we reported of Samsung’s new Galaxy Tabs. The new devices are bigger than the original with 8.9 and 10.1 inch screen sizes. But just before the release of the new iPad 2 in the UK, we have news of the original Galaxy Tab being slashed in price.

Wal-Mart owned British supermarket giant Asda has dropped the price of the tablet PC to below £300, according to a report on Reg Hardware by Tony Smith. The offer appears to be only online and is reduced from £497 down to £299.

Now we don’t know how much stock of the Android 2.2 powered device Asda might have, but it’s a pretty good price for those who can’t afford the iPad 2 when it comes out tomorrow. Of course specs wise it doesn’t compare to the Apple tablet, but you are still getting quite a lot for your money.

You can pick up the base model of the iPad 2 for £100 more, but some consumers may like the 7-inch screen size of the Galaxy Tab.

Is this price low enough to tempt you to buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab? Tell us what you think.
