Amazon Galaxy Tab price

The Samsung Galaxy Tab has been announced by carriers for $600 unsubsidized or less with a contract, yet Amazon has recently launched a page for the T-Mobile version listing the price at $699.99, and that is with a $50 discount. Hopefully this is just a mix-up between Amazon and T-Mobile, as charging $700 for the Galaxy Tab in a world of $500 iPads is a recipe for failure. With the recent FCC filing of a WiFi-only version, T-Mobile customers interested in the Galaxy Tab should probably hold off until that price comes down after the Nov. 9 launch date or the WiFi-only version goes on sale.

Amazon lists T-Mobile Galaxy Tab for $699, on sale Nov. 9


I would consider up to $400 at the most, just out of curiosity. I tend to get a bunch of electronic gadgets and carry the one that does the most. I bought a couple iPads and they are decent devices; basically an over sized iPod Touch. No doubt, the iPad is way overpriced and Apple makes a ton of money on the large margins. I doubt others will be able to get away with trying the same price structure, especially when entering the market so late. I do not care about the cameras, but that may matter to some.

If they hold at this high price, I will not even look at the Samsung Tab and it will be a no sale.
