The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 may be a bit old after being released last Spring – but slap a “Student Edition,” add a keyboard and a USB dongle accessory and it becomes a heck of a deal at $249. This student bundle costs the same as the tablet’s original price, with word around the internet saying it would be available around August 19. But with some luck, you might be able to get yours now.

At least one of our readers managed to. Android Forums member jd78 was able to purchase one straight from Best Buy. He mentions simply strolling around the store when he saw a box laying around one of the store’s metal storage cages. He then proceeded to ask an associate about it, only to prove the rumored $249 price tag was in fact real.

Purchasing the tablet bundle was just as simple, according to jd78. He was simply rung up and walked away with a brand new tab.

If you would like to test your luck, just head over to your nearest Best Buy and see if they have this bad boy laying around. It won’t be on display, though. Just look for it behind counters, inside those cages and even under rocks if you must. You just might find it, so let the scavenger hunt begin!


Gotta love it when an adventurous owner of an unreleased product makes an unboxing video! Our friend jd78 has taken it upon himself to be the first person to unbox the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Student Edition. Enjoy!

Thanks, Jason!
