    Samsung on Friday announced a special edition Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 bundle that will retail for $250 and will be available for purchase for two weeks starting with August 19.

    The Student Edition Bundle, available from various retailers including Best Buy, Amazon, Costco and others, includes the 7-inch tablet in a “unique white color,” but also various accessories such as a keyboard dock and USB adapter that supports USB thumb drives and various peripherals, mice included. The whole package retails for $250, which is $100 less than what purchasing all the parts separately would cost you.

    In addition to hardware, the bundle also includes Polaris Office pre-installed, with Samsung apparently interested in making its Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet a great choice for students:

    “The education market is a significant priority for Samsung, and we are very pleased to deliver a bundle that is sure to be appealing to just about any student at a very competitive price point,” explained Travis Merrill, Director of Marketing, Galaxy Tab, Samsung Electronics America. “A busy student can achieve a PC-like setup in the dorm room, yet still pop the Galaxy Tab 2 out of the dock and slip it into a pocket for usage while on the go. It truly is the smarter way to learn.”

    The bundle is definitely an interesting choice for Android users that are on the lookout for a budget-friendly tablet. In fact, at $250, the bundle is a great alternative to Google’s Nexus 7 or Amazon’s Kindle Fire, both currently selling for under $200.
