It’s already been established by many companies that the back to school sales push now begins the second students leave school for the summer. The latest back to school offering is from Samsung, with a student edition of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.
Of course, most of the ‘student edition’ part is just a marketing ploy, but there’s just enough here to make it particularly well-suited for students. Basically, this is just the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with a Bluetooth keyboard and a dock that doubles as a stand. So, students will be able to be more productive on it, in theory. That should also be helped by the free inclusion of Polaris Office.
Otherwise, this is still the same old Galaxy Tab 2, although there are some extra goodies besides Polaris Office to sweeten the pot. If your student isn’t already a Hulu Plus subscriber, they will be soon thanks to three free months with purchase. 50 GB worth of free storage from Dropbox isn’t too shabby, either.
The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Student Edition is already available in stores like Best Buy, Walmart and OfficeMax, where it’s selling for $350.
