Samsung’s WiFi only Galaxy Tab 2 has been on sale through unofficial channels for quite some time but Samsung has now officially kick-started the pre-booking of the tablet for the Indian market. It comes with the same hardware specifications as the older Galaxy Tab 2 P 310.
The price of the tablet has been kept reasonably low at Rs 13,900 but you can get a pre-booking gift as well which we think is a complementary flip cover for the device. The delivery date is stated as first week of February this year.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P311 comes with a powerful 1 GHz processor along with 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage which can be further complimented to another 32 GB through a micro SD memory card. The 3G SIM module is not present in the device but the tablet has WiFi as well as Bluetooth connectivity. Note that its USB port does not support 3G dongle.
The good news is that the tablet comes preinstalled with Android’s latest Jelly Bean 4.1 operating system which will be coming soon to the Galaxy Tab P310 as well. Along with that the Galaxy Tab 2 P311 has the TouchWiz interface for making navigation easier.
There is a 3 megapixel fixed focus camera at the rear for taking pictures and recording videos and in the front there is a VGA camera for supplementing video calling.
