T-Mobile to price Samsung Galaxy Tab at $399 after rebate, with a 2 year contract

T-Mobile to price Samsung Galaxy Tab at $399 after rebate, with a 2 year contract
Even  though this leaked information is based on a document sent to T-Mobile's retail partners, there would be no reason to expect the corporate stores to have a different price on the Samsung Galaxy Tab when the device is released. According to the document, the 7 inch Android 2.2 equipped pad will cost you $399 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and your John Hancock on a 2 year contract. Off contract, the Samsung Galaxy Tab will set you back $649.99.
 
While most top of the line smartphones have been priced at the magical $199 price after rebate and a signed 2 year contract, it should be interesting to see if the upcoming group of tablets takes its cues from Sprint and T-Mobile's pricing of the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

As far as this specific device is concerned, T-Mobile's contract price matches the price tag that Sprint will put on its subsidized version of the Galaxy Tab, as we recently reported.

I was very excited about this when Samsung announced it but not anymore. There's no reason for this thing to require a contract since they've removed phone functionality in the US version. Samsung should sell this through big box stores sans contract. They would sell so many more that way.

I was very excited about this comment but not anymore. There's no reason for the comment system to replicate a single comment since I got all I needed from the first one in the US. Phone Arena should only allow a comment to be posted once sans repitition. There would be so many fewer this way.

FAIL~ More expensive than the iPad and with 2-yr Contract No more love for this. $299 off contract would most likely get some love, but not this $399 2-yr or $649... lol Those idiotic US carriers are on crack for sure.
