Heads up Samsung fans! If you are currently looking for an affordable tablet and can’t wait no more for Google’s Nexus 7 to land here, then look no other than Samsung’s GALAXY Tab 2 7.0!
The Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 7.0 has a 7-inch WSVGA (1024x600) screen, a 1 GHz dual-core processor which may seem outdated compared to this year’s tablet standards.

As with the other GALAXY Tab 2’s, this is equipped with a 3 Megapixels main shooter and a VGA one on the front.
The Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 7.0 is now available in the Philippines for only P12,990.
