You read right, folks. The Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab (watch our hands-on here) apparently is going to sell unsubsidized for $599, and it'll be available Nov. 11. A data plan will run you $20 for 1GB. And with all that jing you get a 7-inch Android 2.2 tablet with a 1 GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor and all the bells and whistles. Preloaded apps include Verizon's VCAST suite, Slacker Radio, Kindle, Blockbuster and Let's Golf.
So at $600 -- but no messy contract -- are you more or less apt to pic this up? Full presser after the break.
