the Galaxy Tab 2 7" 16GB model is on sale at the Fred Meier store that I frequent for $219. I thought at first it must be the 8GB but I checked the settings menu and its definitely the 16Gb. Of course now that it s on sale and clearly to me a better deal than the nexus at that price my wife has decided she'd rather we get a 10" tablet.
short story- imo the Tab 2 is a better deal if you can get the 16Gb version for less than $249. If you want expandable storage and like the remote control feature and rear camera event he 8gb version is a better deal even if its abit over 200
