Preliminary finding hints to some pricy data plans for the Samsung Galaxy Tab for AT&T
With so many tablets hitting the airwaves of late, there appears to be a common bond that all of the announced tablets have in common – what are their prices; contract and non-contract to be exact. Still considered to be the one million dollar question for all, we're still waiting for one of the four major carriers to come out of the dark and announce something regarding the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Although there are plenty of speculations as to what kind of figures we may potentially see, there is already a preliminary finding in regards to the data plan structure we might see end up happening with AT&T's variant. Reports hint that AT&T is conducting trainings for the Galaxy Tab, and that some preliminary figures have surfaced that details the pricing structure for the Tab's data plan. From the sound of it, there are going to be three offerings - $15/100MB for 1 day, $30/300MB for 7 days, and $50/1GB for 30 days.

Quickly taking a peek at those figures, long time AT&T customers might be appalled with them, but it'll undoubtedly limit some of those heavy users by having them resort to connecting via Wi-Fi for their usage.

Actually that pricing above is the new PRE-PAID pricing for ATT and VZW. Not they're contracted pricing. That pricing will also be for they're aircards or tablets. Has nothing to do with contracted pricing which should be substantially less. Why is this being posted as fact?

Really, Phone Arena? The prices they are stating are the Prepaid data prices that they offer in Walmart and soon in AT&T Corp stores if it's not already in there. I highly doubt that AT&T is going to offer this tablet as prepaid only. Damn spinsters trying to stir up controversy...

AT&T has completely lost their minds! Who the HELL is going to pay those prices? And on a CRAPPY network to boot!

lordy lordy.. watch everyone fall over. guys, a little common sence, thats not contract pricing. thats pay per use/prepay pricing. Phone arena trying to report it as anything else is shoddy at worst, or just trying to stir up a pointless debate at best. i would assume that contract pricing would be in line with ipad service. i cant invsion it going over 30 a month for 5gig/unlimited. If it does, dont frikkin buy it.
