The much-talked-about Android tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab is coming to Verizon November 11 with a $599 price tag, and according to a leaked inventory spreadsheet, Sprint’s version of the tablet will be launched three days later on November 14.
Sprint’s pricing is still unknown, however, and it shall be interesting to see if the carrier will charge less for the device than its competitor. Verizon’s Galaxy Tab announcement didn’t mention any subsidy options, so people will likely have to pay the full $599 price and then choose a data plan. Sprint, on the other hand, will hopefully offer a discount when signing a contract.
The Galaxy Tab runs Froyo, and it packs a 7-inch 1024×600 display, 512MB RAM, dual cameras, a 1 GHz Hummingbird CPU and 16/32GB of storage.
Sprint has now officially announced its Galaxy Tab pricing: $399.99 when signing a new 2-year contract. Subscribers will get 2GB data and unlimited messaging for $29.99/month, and for an additional $30 ($59.99), you’ll get 5GB of monthly data instead. The tablet can already be pre-ordered at Sprint stores when purchasing a $50 Sprint gift card. A wait list will be created, and customers will be contacted to set up an appointment to complete their Galaxy Tab purchase beginning on November 14.
