It is time to get back to the humdrum life of classes, teachers, and bullies who kick sand into your face. Yes sir, I am referring to making that trip back to school after an unforgettable summer, and here we are with Samsung taking the initiative to release their Galaxy Tab 2 Student Edition tablet which will come bundled with a keyboard dock and an USB adapter without requiring financially constrained students to fork out more money than they have. This particular bundle will be good for only a couple of weeks, which means you get (on paper) $100 of additional value.

Retailing for $249.99, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Student Edition will enable a busy student to get a setup that is somewhat reminiscent of a PC in just a short while, thanks to the included keyboard dock. Not only that, each purchase of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Student Edition will also come with a bunch of recommended cool educational apps from Google Play to help you get started right out of the box. Powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, this 7″ tablet will feature an integrated IR blaster that turns it into a potential universal remote, a microSD memory card slot, 8GB of internal memory, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a 3-megapixel camera at the back and a VGA camera in front.

Do you think the included keyboard dock is a subtle attempt by Samsung to go up against Microsoft’s Surface tablet when those arrive later this year?

Verizon is now carrying the latest 7″ tablet from Samsung – namely, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. You will be able to pick it up from stores a couple of days from now, where this particular tablet allows you to access Verizon’s 4G LTE network for speedy online connections no matter where you are, as long as there is a relevant signal, of course. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) will merge both power and portability in a single device, where it has Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system of choice, in addition to pre-loaded multimedia-rich apps such as Netflix and Samsung’s Media Hub that delivers decent portable entertainment action wherever you are.

Love reading e-books? That is not a problem with the Amazon Kindle app that allows you to “carry” your favorite electronic tomes with you wherever you go, while the Peel Smart Remote app would transform your spanking new tablet into a universal remote right there and then on the spot. Thanks to the Galaxy Tab 2 being a SAFE (Samsung Approved For Enterprise) device that boasts of on-device AES-256 bit encryption, your corporate and personal data in there have an added layer of protection.
