After leaking early and then being sold ahead of schedule at Best Buy, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Student Edition Bundle — yes, that’s really its full moniker — now has a confirmed street date. Starting tomorrow, $250 the bundle (which includes a 8GB version of the tablet finished in glossy white, a keyboard dock and USB peripheral connector) will be available for purchase until September 1st at Best Buy, Tiger Direct, Fry’s Electronics, Amazon, and Costco. Specs-wise this Android 4.0 slate skinned with TouchWiz isn’t exactly up to par with the venerable $200 Nexus 7, but it’s still a potential step up from B&N’s recently discounted Nook Tablets. Beyond that, it also stands out by packing an IR-blaster, microSD card slot and two cameras — and lest we forget to mention that this particular GTab itself is normally $250. Hit up the press release after the break if your interests are piqued enough to consider hitting the halls with this bundle.
