Samsung Galaxy Tab available on AT&T
The Samsung Galaxy Tab has finally found its way to AT&T after the Android-powered tablet became available for big name rivals Sprint and Verizon earlier this month.

Unlike Sprint and Verizon, AT&T is only offering the Galaxy Tab without a contract and with a hefty price tag of $649.99. Yes, this is a $50 increase over the Sprint and Verizon versions but AT&T is including a $50 credit for the Samsung Media Hub that can be used for things such as movie rentals.

Similar to what AT&T did with the Apple iPad, you can get the 3G version of the Galaxy Tab and add a monthly data plan to it. Like their lineup of smartphones, the choices are a $15 plan that includes 250 MB of data or a $25 plan that includes 2 GB of data.

There really isn’t anything that separates AT&T’s offering with that of their main competition. The $50 credit is nice, but the cost of the device is $50 higher so it’s a wash. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

So basically they are forcing you to pay for $50 worth of media off of the hub.
Att fails again!

Engadget has a nice comparison that shows that in the long term the Tab actually costs less than with the other 3 major carriers.

And apparently it can also be hacked to activate phone capabilities.

This is so stupid. I should be able to walk into Best Buy and pick this up for $399 as a Wi-Fi only internet tablet.

I interest is in an UN-LOCKED AT&T Samsung Galaxy TAB - and I have several questions?
While I have an AT&T SIM card for my Sierra USB and I would like to use it, I travel to Europe alot and need to use local SIM when over there for a number of weeks at a time.
Additionally, I need the Software - UNLOCKED so I can add Skype for example and other Items.
