Samsung Galaxy Tab now available from Verizon, may hit AT&T on November 21

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.

    hmm, with the a Super AMOLED version, a 10.1-inch flavor, and a tablet-tuned Android, just hit Verizon retail for $599.99, really stunned, but Im not really caring about a comparison to the ipad, there must be lots of folks think so? Well, ipad more likely a consumer electronic, a great portable movies, videoes and game device, at least now Im sucked in movies watching on it in the help of iFunia iPad Video Converter, and now Game center, be a great game playing platform, of course the E-mail and surfing internet or do some office work on it are also handy and convenient.~~~Well, but the Galaxy Tab got its features and superiority and must be on fire too, time will prove that… In a word, both are winsome, the ipad has time superiority, and is $499 for the wifi only version makes some more appealing.
