All we have to go on right now is the photo, so it's not clear what the specs will be for the dock or the adapter. But I did a little digging and I'm pretty sure that this is the dock that will be in the bundle. It's a pretty basic piece of hardware, and about all it can do (besides work as a keyboard) is charge the tablet. It has no card slots or ports other than a single headphone jack, and thanks to the location of the tablet's docking port the dock can only hold the tablet in portrait, not landscape mode.
I don't think it's worth the current $50 retail price, but then again I don't think much of the tablet either. I haven't reviewed the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 myself but I did take an afternoon back when it launched and read all the reviews. It was a rather unimpressive basic tablet, and nowadays it would come up short against the Nexus 7.
I'm also pretty sure that this is the USB adapter. All it does is add a single USB host port to the tablet, and in doing so it blocks the tablets docking port.
And this is the point where the bundle becomes a crappy deal. I don't think you can use the USB adapter while you're using the keyboard. It's not clear yet, but one detail I can confirm is that you cannot charge the tablet while using the adapter. That really cuts into the value of adding both items to a bundle, doesn't it?
I'll admit, I first looked at this as a possible mobile alternative to a netbook. But I think this is a pretty crappy bundle. It takes a so-so tablet and adds accessories which you can't use at the same time. That's just not worth it.
