This seems like more evidence that the Galaxy Tab 4G is pretty close. Of course, it could also be evidence that people have stopped buying the Galaxy Tab because they are waiting for the true generation of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets to begin. T-Mobile USA and Tesco in UK are both dropping the price for the Galaxy Tab.
T-Mobile US is dropping their price from $349 to $249 (with mail-in rebate) with a 2-year contract, and from $599 to $499 off contract. Meanwhile, and Tesco UK is dropping their price from ?499.00 to ?359.20.
The Tesco price drop is already in effect, but the T-Mobile price drop will begin tomorrow, January 26th.
So, which do you think is a better deal: a Galaxy Tab on T-Mobile for $250, or a Motorola Xoom on Verizon for $800?
Even with Honeycomb, and a monster spec sheet for the Xoom, I’m not even sure how I’d vote on that one.
