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

Debating whether to pull the trigger myself.
Ajibee#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)?
jools2001#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 :-)

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.

what is this like for handing pdfs? would it be worth getting this instead of the latest sony reader?

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.
zoal#16
Good find but I'd personally spend a extra £50 and get a iPad
Stealth_Fox#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*
rayer#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.
RT1981#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
