Sprint to sell Samsung Galaxy Tab for $399?
posted by PhoneArena Team / Oct 08, 2010, 7:26 AM
Sprint is the first company in the US to launch a 4G network, but it has already been said that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will not be a 4G capable device. Considering the fact that the 4G is a strong selling point, and that Samsung has actually produced a 4G phone for Sprint (the Epic 4G), this was a bit of a surprise.
Not much else is known at this time, unfortunately. The Galaxy Tab is said to be coming to multiple carriers in the US, but no pricing has been announced for any of the networks. So take from this what you will, as this is all unofficial.
If this rumored price ends up being accurate, is it a fair price or too high with a contract given that it doesn’t even run on Sprint’s WiMax network? Will any of you consider buying it for $599 without a contract? Nobody knows all the details, but more are sure to start flowing. Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

Considering the fact that it won't run on the WiMax and it doesn't have phone capabilities, I don't think I would be buying this. I think that $600 is a little high. And the screen isn't the AMOLED screen. What was Samsung thinking?

That AMOLED would make the whole thing about two to three hundred even more expensive. But it probably won't be that expensive in the first place. They also originally said that the Zio would be free, and it's actually one hundred. Likewise, they're saying this will be 399 but it could just as easily be 299.

Why the hell are they contracting 2-year when it does not even have phone capability? This is such an epic fail marketing for this sexy device. $599 off-contract is also insane and it will not be able to compete with iPad at all. FAIL~ Though I wanted one before all these change and contract crap.

Put back in? It wasn't necessarily in there in the first place. And you missed the part where it wouldn't be just one hundred more with an AMOLED, if it is indeed 399 in the first place following subsidies. None of this information is official. If you put 4G, wi-fi, and AMOLED in there, we're talking about 400 dollars more, approximately. You're all bashing a product where A) the finalized features have not been released B) the finalized price has not been released and C) the release date has not been released. Everyone needs to relax.
