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.
