US Cellular to offer Galaxy Tab on Nov. 19 -- $399 on contract after rebate

0

I'm beginning to think it's called the Galaxy Tab because Samsung aims to have one up and running on every wireless provider in the galaxy.  And since US Cellular is a carrier that operates in our known galaxy, it's only fitting that they have one too.

US Cellular announced today that its version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab will hit store shelves by the end of this week.  Slated for a Nov. 19 launch, US Cellular's Galaxy Tab will cost you $399 after a $100 mail-in rebate on a two-year contract, or a heftier $599 to go contract free.  

Galaxy Tab subscribers will then have to choose between two vastly different rate plans.  $14.99/mo will net you a measly 200MB of network bandwidth, and $54.99/mo will quench your thirst for data by offering 5GB of network bandwidth, and includes mobile hotspot -- something other carriers love to charge extra for.  USCC believes their $14.99/mo 200MB plan is ideal for subscribers whose usage will revolve around a WiFi connection, rather than their network.

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Tab available Nov. 21 for $649; data starts at $15 a month

5

True to the leak, the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be available Nov. 21 for $649.99. That means you're not locked into a contract. And accordingly, data use is "pay as you go," with 250MB going for $14.99 a month, and 2GB at $25 a month. AT&T's also throwing in a $50 Media Hub movie rental credit (rental only? boooo) for a limited time.

On top of that, you get access to AT&T's national Wifi network, if you choose to go sans data plan. What remains to be seen is if the Tab will be locked into the Android Market like AT&T's smartphones -- but no matter, we've got the Android Sideload Wonder Machine to fix that. Full presser's after the break. [Samsung]

Evo 4G accessory review: Seidio Innotraveler car kit

30

We all love using Google Maps' turn-by-turn navigation on our Android phones, but it's so much better with the right car dock.  Enter the Seidio Innotraveler car kit for the Evo 4G. The dock is easy to use, infinitely adjustable, and is designed to work with two of Seidio's other very popular accessories -- the Seidio Innocase II, and the 3500 mAh extended battery.

The dock comes with a mini USB DC car adapter, and has a separate DC out for charging other accessories while driving.  It's very well built, has a huge suction cup, and will keep your Evo 4G safe and at your fingertips.  You can get the Seidio Innotraveler car kit in the Android Central store for $49.95.  Check out the features, and the pictures after the break.

Motorola Droid Pro benchmarks [video]

9

Motorola Droid Pro benchmarks? We got 'em. And when you take a 1GHz processor and strap it to a 3.1-inch touchscreen with a mid-level resolution of 320x480, the results are going to be darned impressive.

That's not to say that benchmarks are everything, of course. Unless all you do is sit around naked in a bean bag chair eating Cheetos* and running Quadrant, well, speed ain't nothing but a number.

But it runs the included Need for Speed: Shift without blinking. And, yes, Angry Birds is just fine, even on the smallish screen. If you want the numbers pr0n, check out the video after the break.

Add another one up on the board, Sprint 4G is now in 62 cities across the U.S. Sprint announced today that the capital of Califonia, Sacramento, can now enjoy the wonders of 4G speeds. So if you live in the Sacramento area and you own a Epic 4G or EVO 4G, be sure to hit that 4G toggle button.

If your city isn't one of the 62 yet, don't feel sad. Sprint has also said that they are planning to bring WiMAX to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Denver and Washington, D.C. by the end of the year. Now where's that Speed Test app, hmm? [Sprint]
