Verizon follows suit in lowering the price of the Samsung Galaxy Tab to $200 on-contract

Although its off-contract cost of $499.99 still pales in comparison to the $429.99 cost with Sprint’s version, the new $199.99 on-contract pricing places it on the same level. It’s a welcomed new sight for Big Red since the Galaxy Tab was initially offered only for $599 with no contract required, but some might have been too scared off with its high price point – and it didn’t help when you couldn’t pick one up on-contract to reduce its price.
Regardless, it’s definitely nice to see it in a more comfortable range, and when you look at the $400 difference separating it with the Motorola XOOM’s contract price, some people just might favor it to save themselves the money – while still providing the core Android experience.

Danm phonearena keeps getting worse and worse by the second. You don't even do any research anymore. Here is another piece of news that you will print but is already out: the Thunderbolt will keep it's mobile hotspot unlimited also. It won't have a data as the other mobile hotspots currently @ $20 for 2 gig. The unl mobile hotspot will work with up to 8 devices sharing the LTE connection for $30 on top of the standard $30 unl data. Yes, verizon will keep it's LTE unlimited. For now. I fell sorry for Sprint. Warning- you damn phone will get hot if you do this..dont expect to keep a 10mbps wireless connection and have your phone stay cool as ice. Heck I thought my palm pre 2 would explote after allowing a xbox to connect to it for about 30mins. Never doing that again! Now with the Thunderbolt....thats a different story. I may get rid of my cable altogether. plus I wanna be granfathered in. don't see a way verizon will keep this unlimited data for long, but who knows.

Make it $200 OFF-contract and I will think about buying one. The size is quite nice for one hand to hold. The Xoom feels like it needs to be a bit bigger or smaller. I wonder if Sammy will make a new version with a higher clocked single core that is as thin as the new models. I would definitely think about buying one then, especially if they kept the price below $250 off contract.
