Guys, it is here. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is going on sale in Safaricom and FoneXpress stores all over Kenya. The iconic device is expected to retail at Ksh 70,000 while the older Galaxy Tab 7″ is retailing at Ksh 39,000 at Safaricom shops. It will be available at the two shops but I am not sure if that would be exclusively or not.
The company is facing a host of legal battles in different markets pitting it against Apple’s iPad.
The new Galaxy Tab supports Safaricom and the Orange HSPA+ network speeds of up to 21Mbps and comes pre-loaded with Readers Hub and Music Hub giving consumers instant access to more than 2.2 million books, 2,000 newspaper, 2,300 magazines and 13 million songs.
At KSh 70,000, the tablet is way much cheaper than the iPads and PlayBooks being sold at FoneXpress with the starting price in the range of Ksh 74,000.
