I have started seeing the 8 GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 showing up at local store shelves. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is actually just a rehashed version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus from 2011 redesigned for lower cost of production, by using a cheaper chipset/graphics chop combination. And it does achieve this.
The 3G version of this tablet, the GT-P3100, sells for about Php15,990, while the WiFi version, the P3100, sells for about Php12,990. The P3113 is the same as the GT-P3100 but has internal less storage at 8 GB instead of 16 GB. This in turn brings down the price to Php10,990. The lower internal storage is not a big deal since the tablet does have a MicroSD card supporting SDCard up to 64 GB's in size.
For Php10,990 the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has decent enough specifications, with a 7-inch 600 x 1024 pixel resolution display, a 1 GHz dual core processor, PowerVR 540SGX graphics and 1 GB of RAM.
It does seem like a better deal than the 16 GB version of Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 given how cheap MicroSD Cards are these days.
Still a few thousand more gives you a HD display and quad core processor with the Google Nexus 7.
