For example, today we have the first official street price for the tab, £530, courtesy of Carphone Warehouse, one of the UK’s leading retailers.
This price will get you an unlocked and SIM-free Galaxy Tab and is exactly on par with that of the Apple iPad 3G 16GB, so Samsung are positioning the Tab as a direct competitor to the iPad in the UK, if only by price.
It remains to be seen whether this strategy will pay off or not, and how many people will choose to buy the Galaxy Tab SIM-free and not on contract with a subsidy.
