Samsung dangles £200 lure at iPad-eyeing punters

Buy a Galaxy Tab and get free stuff

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Samsung is giving away £200 worth of digital content in a bid to tempt tablet buyers to take its 7in Galaxy Tab this Christmas.

All you have to do is find a Tab's IMEI number, Samsung said today. Type it into the Tab website and you'll be granted gratis access to 50 eMusic MP3 files - odd, this, since the Tab's main music seller is 7 Digital - 15 films from Samsung Movies, seven games, and five e-books from the WHSmith bestseller list.

Sounds good, but it's always worth checking out the Ts&Cs.

The £25 worth of e-books is offered as an alternative to the games, valued at £21. Two of the games are already pre-installed on the Tab, so you only get five extra ones.

The 50 tracks come from a generic eMusic offer - just sign up to eMusic to get them. Even the Tab-less can do it.

The 15 films are worth £165. You have until 28 February 2011 to claim your content, and then a further month to use the vouchers Samsung will send you.

It's all in the hope of winning buyers from Apple, of course.

Samsung's Ts&Cs say the deal is open only "to UK residents... who have purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab". So no sneaking into a Carphone Warehouse or like to get snap of the IMEI on the box label... ®
