About five days later than originally expected, Bell has started selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab in Canada. Not only did Bell not make their own intended November 12 release, but even today supplies of the Tab are very limited – so if you’re after one, make sure you call your nearest Bell store and ask if they have any in stock.
The few Bell retail locations that do have Samsung’s first Android-powered tablet ready will sell it to you for $649.95 without any contract. If you get a Tablet Flex plan you’ll receive $50 bill credit. There are two tablet data plans you can choose from: one that offers 500 MB of data for $20/month and one that includes 5 GB of data for $35/month. If you’re on the former plan but jump over the 500 MB allotment, you’ll be automatically transferred to the higher plan. A Tablet TV add-on is also available for $10 per month and gives you 10 hours of viewing. Any hour over that will cost you $1.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab continues its worldwide march into the line-ups of many carriers. With the same pretty high prices for all though, it seems. And while it probably will be a decent seller, simply because it’s available in very many places, it could have become a best-seller had it been priced more affordably.
