As more and more tablets get closer to launch we can only expect prices of the Samsung Galaxy Tab to continue dropping from here on out. Rogers is the latest carrier to go ahead and slash the price, reducing their version to only $299.99 on a new 3-year contract. Although it looks as though the deal only runs until March 31, that really shouldn't be a problem for most users especially if you've been holding out for the drop. Just keep in mind, the Motorola XOOM has yet to appear in Canada and Samsung does have more tablets already officially lined up and soon ready to roll out. Given the 3-year contract requirement, you just might want to hold out. [MobileSyrup]

Welcome to Canada. We hope you enjoy your 3-year stay.

I'm finally free of my cellphone contract in may though I may cut rogers loose sooner as some of the discounts they applied seem to be ending.

It *is* a problem for most users, because what we want is a reasonably priced, full-featured, 3.0, *WiFi-only* tablet. Not one tied to a carrier and monthly payments.

Can you buy it off contract in Canada? Certainly wouldn't tie into a 3 year contract on any mobile tech in such a rapidly moving market personally. The no contract version in the UK has reduced in price and given the tease of the Wi-Fi Xoom price today, I would expect it to drop further.

Seriously Android Central, love your site but the spam filter kicks in pretty swiftly. Been around here for a while now and still haven't been tempted to Spam, honest.

It sucks that we have to deal with 3 year contracts where everyone else in the world has 2 years, that's if you can't afford ouright prices. Funny that Rogers announces $299 for the Tab, Bell the other day just did a 3 year price on the Tab for $349 (at the time, $50 cheaper than Rogers), lol I see a war going on here.

Telus are obviously going to get the HTC Flyer (which is subjected to be $900 outright), I'm personally waiting for the Blackberry Playbook which should be under $500. I want nothing to do with the Xoom and Motorola themselves (this is coming from a Motorola user for 18 years).
