It seems like 2012 will end up as the year of the tablet PC consumer as the action is just hotting up and hopefully by the time the year ends there'd more consumers with tablet PCs than mobile phones in India.

Price cut is definitely an effective weapon for the tablet makers in India battling a stiff competition from the low-cost devices. Research in Motion kicked off the 2012 with a bang by slashing the price of its PlayBook tablet by 50 per cent.

Motorola soon followed with a price cut for its Xoom tablet. Now Samsung has also joined the race, slashing the price of its Galaxy Tab (7-inch, Wi-Fi variant) by Rs 6,000.

If you had been waiting to own a Samsung Galaxy Tab at a bargain, the Indiaplaza deal is definitely a good one. However, keep in mind, it's not the 8.9 or the 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Do you think the Samsung Galaxy Tab (7-inch, Wi-Fi variant) is worth buying for Rs 13,999? Lets us know on the message board below.

The BlackBerry brand has become increasing popular amongst India consumers, and we've already highlighted the solid build quality and well-tuned hardware of the device. Perhaps the upcoming Android and Java app support, combined with the slashed price offer, really clinched the deal.
