Retail insiders hint to a £599.99 price for a SIM-free Samsung Galaxy Tab?
It's hard to gauge whether or not the latest round of handset manufacturers diving head first into the tablet market are really looking at the existing landscape when it comes down to pricing. It's almost hard to fathom that some of these upcoming tablets are literally going to situate themselves in pricing levels that might ultimately put them out of commission in truly being a competitive device.

For the longest of time now, everyone is still curious to see what Samsung will do when it comes down to pricing for their upcoming Galaxy Tab. However, it looks as though that some retail insiders over in Europe might provide us all some additional details surrounding this still mysterious aspect.

The DSG Group, which is the company behind popular UK retailers such as Currys, Dixons, and PC World, offered up the notion that the off-contract price for a SIM-free Samsung Galaxy Tab will be £599.99 ($950). Yeah, you heard that right, it's suspected to launch at a price that some might consider to be death in a way. Still, we'll have to wait for the official word before any judgment can be bestowed upon it.

Naturally, carrier subsidies will come into play in greatly reducing the price of the Android powered tablet when it's released. Everything seems to hinge on the actual price for the device, but as we're already beginning to see, the tablet market is surely heating up with plenty of suitors looking to make their mark.
