When we first reported that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be released on November 1st for the UK, we had no idea how much the price would be. However, we now have the pricing details, and it does not look good for those who were hoping for a bargain.
Paul Lamkin from Pocket-lint explains that the price you pay will be £599.99 without contract, for just £70 less you can get a 16GB 3G iPad – looks like Apple wins this round. Let us not forget that the Tab also comes with a built-in phone – something that the iPad does not.
OK, so the Samsung Galaxy Tab comes with a few added features, but are these worth the higher than expected price? Just remember for those who will want to sign-up to a contract will be able to get themselves a deal with each network – expect some great deals to be had there then.
None of us here can understand why Samsung went with a high price, we would have thought that they would have wanted to undercut the iPad, as this will be their only competition for a while.
Do you think that Samsung has made a huge mistake with the higher than expected price tag of the Galaxy Tab?
