With a price just $50 above that of the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet, most reviews compare the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 to those devices. And as an alternative to those models, it acquits itself well, especially when compared with the Fire, which doesn’t offer any options for expanded storage, and limits which apps can be installed. That said, Amazon makes a wide variety of apps available in its app store, and includes its own video-on-demand app, which isn’t officially available for other Android devices.
The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 also offers a handful of interesting features that you won’t find on the Fire or Nook, including its universal remote function, which lets it control TVs, cable boxes and other peripherals. It also has front and rear-facing cameras along with Bluetooth and GPS. And, of course, it runs the latest version of Android, 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
All of these features add up to a compelling device for anyone who wants a good, full-featured Android tablet at a price that’s well below that of most similar models. This is the best deal when it comes to a 7-inch, full-featured tablet. Great!
