Well this is getting downright interesting - after some pricing confusion, rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will sell for somewhere between $200 and $400 on contract. That's a hell of a lot better than some of the numbers that were floating around after its official unveiling on September 2 - we'd heard upwards of $900.


Even better: looks like the earlier rumor about Sprint getting the Tab may hold some water after all - now, word on the street is that it'll be rocking WiMax (4G). That these two rumors originated from separate sources lends some credibility to the idea. I'm certainly not going to complain - the idea of a high-end tablet with access to a 4G network is absolutely tantalizing to me, so color me excited.


Whatever the case, we should know more details after the September 16 event. Also, Keep in mind: while these rumors at least appear to be legitimate, they're rumors never the less, so take them with a grain of salt.

    Sweet but sadly i still would like to get the Compaq Airlife 100 on sprint (more then this) with 4G if able because i see this as just a another ripoff of the ipad and the later as a true replacement to the net book.
    Smart book for life.

    Still expensive if we MUST take second contract on top of our current phone contract.

    Why do we need second contract? That's silly because we can easily tether using our Android phone.

      I agree, I'd much rather see it reasonably priced and unsubsidized.

        Indeed. It would be really sad if Apple, of all companies, actually offered the most reasonably priced tablet.
