The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is now made available for the consumers in Canada. Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 has mainly two variants one of 7inch, while the other is about 10.1inches.
The 7inch model is priced at $249 CAD, which is the same as it costs in the US, while the 10.1inch model is priced at $349 CAD, which is about $50 cheaper than what was suggested as the retail price in the US. The Galaxy Tab 2 can now be referred to as the entry level tablets from Samsung.
The 7inch model seems a bit more attractive than the Nook or the Kindle Fire tablets. Although the display as well as the processor provided is almost the same but it has some added features which are not available with the earlier 7inch tablets. It has a camera, Micro-SD card support with this device along with that it is also powered by Android 4.0 or the Ice Cream Sandwich.
Apart from this device there is another competitor who has recently launched their products in the market too. The Google Nexus 7 tablet, which is being offered at only $199, is one of the potential competitors. Although till now this device has not been launched in Canada, but its release in US may be a tough call for Samsung. However, it seems like Google have already started taking orders for Nexus in Canada.
