O2 Germany reveals their €759 price for the Samsung Galaxy Tab
Regretfully, all our fears about the Samsung Galaxy Tab might be coming true after O2 Germany recently became one of the first carriers to announce pricing on the highly anticipated Android powered tablet. Previously, we reported on how retail insiders hinted to an exorbitant price for a SIM-free and no-contract required Galaxy Tab, but now the realization that this thing is going to be costly no matter what is starting to hit everyone.

O2 Germany is planning to sell the Tab for €759 ($1,047) and for right now, looks to be fetched through their My Handy payment plan which essentially cuts up the price of the Tab over the course of a 24 month period – and that doesn't include service. Initially, they require a €99 deposit which would then tie customers into 24 monthly payments of €27.50 each.

It's almost unfathomable to even think that this thing will be priced higher than the Apple iPad, so it's hard to say if Samsung has any control at this point with pricing. Now that we're getting a small taste of what to expect, it'll be interesting to see if other mobile carriers around the world adopt a similar pricing for their specific version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. So now that O2 Germany spilled the beans regarding it, does it make you want to buy one still?
