Samsung Galaxy Tab release: T-Mobile today, Verizon tomorrow – Prices
Since the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab we’ve been bringing you news and information on the tablet device that looks set to rival the Apple iPad. We issued a comparison between the Galaxy Tab and the RIM BlackBerry PlayBook, and have also given details about some of the accessories.
Today is the day that the Samsung Galaxy Tab becomes available in the U.S. on the T-Mobile website. According to Don Reisinger over on CNet you can get the device from T-Mobile for a price of $399.99 on a two-year contract with a 5GB data plan for $39.99 or a 200MB data plan for $24.99. Altenatively if you don’t want to be tied down with a contract the price is $599.99.
Carriers Verizon will offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab from tomorrow, November 11, where it will cost $599.99 with no contract and on November 14 Sprint gets in on the act with the Galaxy Tab priced at $399.99, that’s with a two-year contract.
This 7-inch tablet device that runs Android 2.2, Froyo, also has a front-facing camera and has been released just in time for the holiday season. For more on this go to cnet.com.
