Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

Tablets offer students benefits such as portability, e-books, and multitasking on the go. Here's how the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 can help with school-related activities.

Expandable Storage
Storage is an important consideration for students, who have a massive library of papers, movies, photos, music, and other documents. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes equipped with a built-in microSD slot, which means that whether you buy a 16GB or 32GB tab, you could add up to 32GB of additional storage with a microSD card.

Save and Share Documents Easily
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 users receive 50GB of free storage from Dropbox for the first year. The Dropbox app is a cloud-based service that allows you to store your documents in an online account, so your files are automatically synced between your PC, tablet and phone. Forgot your flash drive at home? With Dropbox on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, you could access your documents no matter where you are on campus. Dropbox also allows you to share large documents and folders with groups easily.

Edit Documents on the Go
Polaris Office is preloaded in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, and is stocked with a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation program and a PDF reader. This is a handy tool for students to create, view or edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents on the go.

Download E-Books
Readers Hub is a Samsung app that offers a large collection of books, newspapers and magazines for purchase. While the app does not replace the traditional textbook, students can download digital e-books, newspapers and magazines for supplemental reading and research.

Make Learning Easier with Back to School Android Apps
With the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, you will have access to a plethora of educational apps from Google Play. Here are a few apps to try:

a. Evernote: Tired of lugging a large notebook to class? Evernote is a free cloud-based digital notebook that lets you take and organize text and audio notes. You can also add pictures and attach files.
b. Amazon Kindle: Buy or rent e-textbooks at reduced prices on the free Kindle app.
