Just yesterday, Samsung released a new special edition of their Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (yes that's last years model) which they are calling their student edition. They made a student edition of this tablet last year as well. The student edition of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1  comes in white, which wasn't previously available int eh US, along with Samsung's Desktop Dock and a slim Bluetooth Keyboard. Samsung is also including some software like Polaris Office, 50GB of Dropbox storage fora year and a three month subscription to Hulu Plus. Sounds like a pretty good deal right?

Samsung is marketing this new edition of their Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 towards students as something that can bring you laptop-like functionality without the laptop-like weight and price. As a student myself, I sometimes wish my tablet could replace my laptop but as a programmer, that's just not possible…yet.

Currently the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Student Edition Bundle is available at Best Buy, Amazon, Wal-Mart, Toys 'R' Us, BJ's, P.C. Richard & Son and Office Max for $349.99, which isn't a bad price when you consider everything that you're getting with this bundle. Hopefully we'll see more manufacturers doing "Student Edition" versions of their tablets. I'd definitely like a Student Edition Nexus 10 or ASUS Transformer Book Trio. How about you?

As a reminder, here are the specs of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1:

  • 10.1-inch 1280×800 resolution display
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD)
  • 3.15MP camera on the back, VGA camera on the front
  • Android 4.1
  • TI OMAP 4430 dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz
  • 7000mAh battery

So these specs aren't quite up to par with existing tablets, but the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has already been replaced with the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, so you shouldn't be too surprised. It still packs enough power to get the job done, which is what students need.
