Verizon has started selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab, just as expected. It’s available online and in stores and costs $599.99. Verizon has chosen not to subsidize the Galaxy Tab at all, a decision which will surely cost them a lot of sales – especially seeing as how the same tablet can be yours for $399 from T-Mobile, if you choose to sign a new 2-year contract. Anyway, on Verizon you can get 5 GB of data per month for $20 to go along with the Tab.
In other Tab-related news, AT&T’s pricing and launch date for Samsung’s first Android-based tablet have leaked. If the image below really is the AT&T training document it looks like it is, then AT&T will be the most expensive carrier in the US for the tablet.
For it will sell it to you for $649.99, a whole $50 more than Verizon’s already quite expensive $599.99. And in a similar manner to that of Big Red, AT&T won’t be subsidizing it at all. Data plans on AT&T will be identical to those offered for the iPad, namely $14.99 for 250 MB or $25 for 2 GB.
According to the same leak, we should see the Galaxy Tab become available from AT&T on November 21. Now if that’s the case, we’ll surely have an official announcement pretty soon.
