Samsung Galaxy Tab price in the UK drops to £479

The Samsung Galaxy Tab has been available in the UK from the beginning of this month, and the price almost all retail outlets seemed to settle upon for an unlocked and SIM-free Tab was £529.99.

Not anymore though, for Dixons is now selling the Android-powered tablet for only £479, and that includes free shipping. Amazon has also changed its price and is offering the Galaxy Tab for the exact same amount.

While a price drop is always good news for consumers, this may indicate that UK retailers grossly miscalculated how many Tabs they would sell. The demand for such a device at over £500 just may not be there. And understandably so, when smartphones that have identical specs save for the display size go for a lot cheaper even SIM-free. Whether or not this is the start of many price reductions for the Tab, we’ll have to see.

    i wish it go down to £150, i am fed up of all companies not advertising their new products properly. Only Nintendo and Apple know how to market their products whether good or not good products. look at iphone4 with all its flaws it is still being advertised.

    I was going to buy one, but when it looked like it would be really expensice I went for a Dell Streak instead (loving it). Anyway, I’m sure a lot of people opted for other devices and now that they are finally lowering Galaxy Tab prices to something more realistic it is too late. Bodyquick
