The Samsung Galaxy Tab will launch on Sprint on November 14th, according to one of the Boy Genius‘ sources. The same person said that the Android-powered tablet will set you back $399 if you opt to sign a new 2-year contract with Sprint, or $599 contract-free.
That certainly isn’t a big subsidy, and is nowhere near the great price of free that you can get the Galaxy Tab for in Sweden.
$399 is also $100 more than what a Samsung exec had us expect a while ago when he said that the tablet would go for $200-$300 (subsidized). But hey, perhaps Sprint have prepared something to alleviate the pain of paying so much – great monthly price plans, maybe?
We’ll see, as there’s no more information at the moment. One thing is sure though, the cheaper the carriers will sell it (or, in other words, the more they’ll subsidize it), the more likely it is that the Galaxy Tab will become a must-buy holiday gift.
We’re waiting for Verizon’s and T-Mobile’s respective moves now, since the Tab is expected to be available in the US from them as well.
