Following in the footsteps of variou Z-list celebrities who sell various products, such as jewelry, clothing, or perfume on TV, Samsung has apparently listed the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 on the infamous QVC home shopping network.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 was briefly available for order on QVC’s website today, until it was taken down just moments ago. We don’t know if someone put the product page up too early, but this clearly fits in with previous reports about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 series being delayed for the end of the month.
One good piece of news that we can extract from this incident is that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 will most likely be in the $300-$350 price range. The 8GB variant of the mid-range slate was priced at $310 on QVC. Given the home shopping network’s tendency to discount their TV offerings, we reckon the regular price of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 would be a few bucks more than what was listed online. We’re thinking something along the lines of $350 or less.
So now we know more about the devices in Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 series and their pricing. As we reported on Saturday, a leak originating from Office Depot revealed the price of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, which is set at a cool $399.99. Seems like a rather pricey bunch for mid-range Android tablets, isn’t it?
Selling the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 on QVC is by no means a bad move, and Samsung has done it before with their previous tablets. Just think about the exposure that the device will get as the network regularly repeats the segment throughout the day for as long as the deal lasts. Samsung probably has its eyes set on soccer moms that just don’t know yet that they need a tablet in their life.
What do you think about the price tags of the upcoming Tabs?
