If you belong to the not so elite Sprint Premiere club, you probably got an e-mail at some point today inviting you to purchase the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Sprint will gladly ship one to you for only $399.99 on a two-year contract. Well, it's actually $449.99 and then you have to deal with mail-in instant rebate but we're guessing that won't be a deal-breaker for you. Toss in a data plan, starting at $29.99 for 2GB and you're ready to rock and roll! If you're still on the fence, be sure to check out our hands on with the Sprint version. [Sprint]

weehooherod says:

It's still in the oven.

jamex says:

I can't think of a single reason why I would want this thing when I have a phone.

david11c says:

For Sprint, instant savings means that it is not a rebate. The price will be $399.99 at checkout.

CruiSin says:

One of these days I'll actually get one of these Sprint emails...

toddjy says:

The Sprint version has only 2gb onboard, plus the 16gb sdhc. The T-Mobile version has the full 16gb that we were promised.

sveilien says:

Ridiculous that they went and made CELL PHONE carrier specific versions for a TABLET COMPUTER.

For some reason when i go to check out i get the following message:

"A system error has occurred. If you had any items in your shopping cart, they have been maintained. Please review your current shopping cart below and add/change any items as necessary before continuing to checkout."

Oh well so much for the whole pre-order thing!!!

Does anyone know if this will have the same return policy that they have on their phones? For example, can I pick one up, try it out for a couple of weeks and return it according to their 30 day return policy owing nothing?

TrueDrooid says:

I would imagine so, with that being said i would try it out if this could replace a line on my already existing service that is eligible for an upgrade. maybe i'll check it out at the store 'when' they get them

Upright says:

No thanks...I have a smartphone...I don't need another monthly bill. I'll just wait for a WiFi version. I'm sorry these 2 year contracts for tablets make ABSOLUTELY no sense to me.

TrueDrooid says:

Its too big to want to carry around along with your cell phone and kinda too small to to be seen in public using it.
