Get over to and snap up a Samsung Galaxy Tab at a great price

$259.99 + $5 shipping

This is the original Galaxy Tab and runs Android 2.2 which wasn’t built for a tablet. But at this price does that matter?  You know the first thing you will do is to put Cyanogen Mod 7 on it as per technomancers instructions over at XDA Dev.

It isn’t the easiest of projects. We rate it a difficulty of 3/5
