T-Mobile to Sell Galaxy Tab for $399 (On Contract)

With a full spec sheet already revealed, all that's really left to figure out about Samsung's Galaxy Tab is when it will be released and how much scratch should potential buyers save up. Thanks an internal T-Mobile document floating around the Web, we can answer one of those questions for you.

According to the slide, team Magenta will carry the Galaxy Tab for $399, provided you agree to a 2-year service contract and don't mind playing the mail-in-rebate dance (for $50). Otherwise, the full price runs $650, which is a little bit higher than we would have hoped.

In case you need a refresher, the Galaxy Tab sports a 7-inch screen with the same 1024x600 resolution as the 9.7-inch iPad. It also boasts 16GB of storage (upgradeable via a microSD card slot), Android 2.2 (and that means native Flash 10.1 support), a 1GHz processor, 1.3MP front facing camera, 3.2MP rear facing camera, HDMI out (via a Dock), and both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity.

Anyone planning on grabbing one of these?

The iPad, even with all its negative publicity, went on to sell 3 million units last quarter. The numbers are supposed to exceed this quarter. I don't see any tablet being able to compete with Apple's fan base.

Not one will. But you don't need to sell 3 million in a quarter to have a successful product. I know just like the MP3 market there will be ones that are cheaper and have more features than the Ipad. Which are the ones I'm going to be looking for. I also really don't care for a 3G contract. Apple product or otherwise.
