Default Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

Hello Galaxy Tab Plus forum!

I'm interested in purchasing this tablet and I was wondering, is this the right forum for the tablet? If not, can someone direct me to the correct one?

Thank you in advance!

DONATE TO ME
seems like quite a few on ebay. Including w/3G. all selling for under $300. Appear to be from good sellers too. Hmmm.

Havent found anywhere else advertising the 3G model. under $300 for a dual-core 7" ICS phone, not too shabby.

edit: that 3g model may be incorrectly posted on ebay.

Chiming in to say hi as well. Picked up my Tab 2 7.0 on opening day and have been very happy with it. Be nice if it catches on and we get a kick-ass dev community behind it!

i think the '3G' model you see on eBay is probably the Tab 7 Plus...which is a pretty good deal if it is brand new...

i picked up my Tab2 on Sunday morning from BB....really great device for the price...

yes, looking forward to some rooting as well

The requirements for my tablet had to be cheap and powerful, yet not gigantic. I wanted something I could browse the internet with without breaking out the 15 inch laptop. I love how it runs ICS stock too.

FYI I have some dead pixels on mine! Actually it's as if someone had some light on their fingertips & wiped it on the screen (it's not dirt or smudges on the screen). It's strange. I am sending it in under warranty so hopefully I'll get it back soon! Check all of your screens out (get an all black screensaver).

I did notice that the Tab 2 lags on quite some games I have tried. Temple run is one of them so its not for casual gaming.

The first one I got at BestBuy had a dead pixel and loose volume rocker. I took it back for exchange and opened before I left the store. They brought out two, opened them up and both had dead pixels! Finally they brought out #4 and it had a perfect screen. The dead pixels were black, easily visible on a white background.

I'm kinda nervous now. I was planning on buying mine on Amazon, but now I'm not so sure. I don't want to have to deal with sending it back through the mail and waiting for days.
