Beat me to it... was just in the process of posting this myself... :p
#2
Ah well, first deal so at least it's a good 'un.

Debating whether to pull the trigger myself.
#3
Are these things likely to be getting Android 3.0 any time soon, or has that been knocked on the head (hence the clearance prices)?
#4
Brilliant Price,
Thanks to op.

But it doesnt have 3g as this
is the P1010 model,

only the P1000 has 3g as well.

Just waitng for that to come down to this price :-)
#5
Hmmm damn, misleading specs as listed on the website

"The tablet uses the Android 2.2 operating system and this, combined with the Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi’s 1GHz processor, Wi-Fi connectivity and superfast HSDPA and HSUPA web browsing, make it a super-slick way to get hold of the latest news, play your favourite games and chat to friends online."

I'll change the title until someone can confirm 3G

This ^^^^^^^

Excerpt from the listing description, "The Samsung Galaxy Wi-Fi Tab GT-P1010..."

P1000 = 3G + WiFi
P1010 = WiFi Only.

Excellent bit of kit got mine during the Asda deal at £299 so this is HOT!

hi nothing is confirmed as of yet, 3g version will be getting 2.3 gingerbread by the end of this month (some parts of Europe have already been update in the last few weeks)

please not the gingerbread update has only been confirmed for the 3g version at this time.

incase you dont know

the wifi only version has a older CPU a slower GPU and a different verson of BLUETOOTH than the 3g version (no doubt to keep costs down)


http://www.thegalaxytabforum.com/index.php?/topic/3150-samsung%E2%80%99s-galaxy-tab-wi-fi-only-cpu-gpu-bluetooth-downgraded/

however this is still a reasonable deal comparing to other "successful tablets"

That's a bit sneaky, I hadn't seen that before so thanks for posting it.

centaurandrew - The principle difference is the size, the Tab's physical size is around half the size of the Ipad although offering a similar screen resolution which you can see here:

http://www.anandtech.com/show/4062/samsung-galaxy-tab-the-anandtech-review/3

Having handled both 10in and 7in tablets I much preferred the smaller 7in size which I found a good balance between a smartphone and an ultralight laptop *but* that's personal preference, some people prefer the larger 10in size. I'd say that's one of the main factors in choosing between the two.

The Tab generally gets slated for using Android's phone OS (currently Froyo 2.2, Gingerbread 2.3 just out) rather than their dedicated tablet OS (3.0 Honeycomb). However I've not found it to be much of an issue, most applications and the OS scale up to the bigger screen with a small handful putting black bars instead. The OS doesn't take advantage of the high screen resolution but I don't find IOS is very good here either. The Tab has a few minor hardware advantages such as being able to be used directly as a phone (not something for general use but may be handy in an emergency) and its memory is expandable through micro SD.

here is a good comparison

http://mobileraptor.blogspot.com/2011/03/apple-ipad-16gb-wifi-versus-samsung.html

ps my bro has a ipad wifi and i have a galaxy tab 3g, and i can say without a doubt the galaxy tab is my choice, Android os, very customizable, also at 7" surprisingly fits in my work trouser and jeans pockets too, you dont really know how much you will use on of these until you get one, i use it constantly. although that comparison says 5-6 hours battery life this has got to be wrong as i get atleast 8 hours out of mine and i use it as a everyday phone oO and browse heavily with 3g on 247 (wifi when at home) also listen to music to and from work 1 hour a day.

This is not a good deal in comparison with other tablets on the market, considering age, power and software capabilities. This will probably never see an update to the tablet-specific version of Android.
#16
Good find but I'd personally spend a extra £50 and get a iPad
#17
Can you still buy the 3G version for £299 instore at O2? If so and if this isn't the 3G version, it's not hot from me. *waiting for clarification before voting*
#18
I purchased a P1010 and noticed that some Apps from major suppliers supported the P1000 but not the P1010.
This is probably due to the slower CPU and GPU. Still a good bit of kit and as people say it is customisable.
But I returned it and got the Ipad2. Never looked back. Ipad is in a different league in my opinion,
For me, its the Apps that make the tablet.
#19
Winner, was looking to buy one via Best Buy and have now saved £50!

I paid £149 for my P1010 3 weeks ago from best buy.

Use it every day with my mifi (and using it right now on my traim into work)

Loving it.

This is more the price that I would expect this to be now TBH, sepecially since the market has moved on to the Tegra 2 chip and Honeycomb now and alternative tablets that are around, for example:

Cutting edge tablets with Honeycomb - around £400-£450
"next gen" Tegra 2 tablets with a 10" screen, advent vega - £200

So for this, a 7" single core tablet, I would say aim for £150, maybe £200 at a stretch since it is from a known quality manufacturer is/was a premium device when it came out
#21
Just a warning, if you are the type to root and use custom roms(or if you want gingerbread even). The wifi version is poorly supported by developers(due to the inferior hardware of the wifi only version), and there is no official update on the horizon.

If you going to get one, it still makes sense to get the 3G capable version(P1000). Its worth the extra cash.

Nowadays, we have too many devices doing the same thing. It's Consumer Age.
For a tablet, I think the bigger screen matters. If you want something that can fit in your pocket, HTC Desire HD or similar HTC phones can do a great job. A tablet needs to be bigger in my opinon, to be more usable than a phone and portable than a laptop.

iPads are too expensive for what they offer, but competition will bring the price down. The iPad competition just needs to understand that they need to make 8in+ tablets.

BestBuy had some at this price at the recent opening in Bristol (and I assumes Hayes as well) ... needed to be early to get one as I think they'd all gone by mid-day - certainly weren't any around when I took a look in at ~4pm on the first day!

According to mobot its also £277 at Asda for the 3G version, but again I think thats too much for this table. Just my opinion tho

True, however my personal take is that for a smartphone above 3.7" is too large and for a tablet above 8" is too large. I have relatively large hands and when using a smartphone thats 4" I was finding it difficult to navigate across the whole screen using just my thumb, my preferred way of using a phone. For a short amount of time I had an iPad but I sold it after i found the screen was too large for it to be truely portable or usable, if I wanted something that large then I would personally carry around a netbook which has much more functionality to balance out the portability issues

Right now I have an iPhone, 8" generic Android Tablet and a laptop, each has their own specific nieche and I find it really easy to decide which I want to take depending on how lumbered down I want to be with devices/how much functionality I want to have while on the go. Just wish Apple would bring out an iPad 7-8" since iOS is a lot more streamlined than Android 2.1 that my tablet is stuck on

Just double checked Asda,
its the p1010 version, and not 3g,
that one is priced at £299, but out of stock, as it has been
for about 6 weeks now,
Pity i missed this one from Asda back then! :-)

Like you i got the same deal and have since sold my Samsung netbook.. which was awesome also.

However have got the docking keyboard for the Galaxy Tab which makes it superb multi functional
device if you do need to write longer articles etc.

Thoroughly recommended.. and is as fast as lightning !!
#31
Important point to note...

I wasn't aware that the WIFI version had a different hardward config to the 3G.. but also i don't care.. as i have what i think is the ULTIMATE SOLUTION

Why pay £399 for 3G when there is a better alternative ?? read on....

I am running an HTC Desire on android, which has an unltd data tariff with orange.. I also get masses of free calls and txts all for £25 a month.

Well the Android 2.2 and beyond allows the user to create a WIFI hotspot on their phone... which other devices can then connect to.

So i Connect the GT to the Desires WIFI network.. smart hey ??

So what are the benefits...

1) It means i only have 1 contract for my phone which has unltd data bundle

2) i always have my phone with me anyway, so i don't have to carry an extra bit of kit

3) The dongle bundles are usually about £15-£30 for between 3-7 GB of data where mine is unltd.

4) I have saved the extra £100 on the initial price of the GT and am also saving another £15-30 per month on a data contract.

5) There may be more.. as i've not really considered this before lol :-)

Therefore in my opinnion the GT WIFI is by far the best deal if you can create a hotspot..

As for this against Ibad... well IMO GT wins hounds down on price, portability and battery life...
App store may be not as good but i have plenty of apps serving my purpose.. BBC Iplayer is superb and the Docking keyboard which i also have means i have just sold my netbook.

I was suspicous about the tablets when they came out.. but am a total convert, and also have now saved myself £150 on a Kindle which i wanted.. (admittedly comparing a slightly different gadget there)

Hope this helps you in your choices

So you could turn the 3G off if you're not on O2 and can't be faffed with a rather arduous root/unlock, and have a faster/better spec'd Tab for £50 more? That's a tricky decision IMHO...

I agree with most of what you say but i hope you will be near a power outlet for your desire as wireless access points run away with your battery so fast its unreal. . Might wanna invest in a portable battery pack too. ?

Well i've had mine last upto 6 hours.. which is pretty good...

How long does a wireless dongle last then ?? or does it use the GT power (as no USB conection) ??

You've omitted the rather large downside to this arrangement though which is power, using the Desire as a hotspot will slaughter the battery which means you end up with no phone which is why I don't use such a solution. I find using the modem on HSDPA on my phone burns through the battery much quicker than normal use and when the battery is done that leaves me without a phone which is not a position I like to be in. Instead I bought a few of the 3GB starter packs which means the data sim works out at around £2 a month for a 1GB of data allowing me to use the Tab independently of the phone so when the Tab's battery fails the phone is still going strong.

Also, as mentioned above the wifi Tab is a lower specification than the 3G version which given the large display I wouldn't want a weaker GPU.
