UK store Expanseys has the tablet up for sale at £679.99 with an availability date of October 11th. Prices for the tablet have appeared across the channel too. It has been reported that an unlocked version of the Galaxy Tab will cost 9,000 Swedish Kronor, which works out to be a rather hefty £806. In France and Germany, rumoured prices are €599 and €699, which we’re assuming is for a 16GB and 32GB Samsung Tab respectively. However, O2’s official German Twitter did unveil a data plan for said device, with buyers having to put a €99 deposit down and then paying €27.50 a month for two years, which works out to be £632 overall, which sounds a little easier on the bank balance.
amsung Pad has a relatively smaller 7-inch touch screen compared to iPad’s 9.7-inch touch screen, but its smaller size increase portability. Samsung Tab has more to offer than iPad. It features a Cortex A8 1GHz processor, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, full quad-band GDSM/EDGE and tri-band 900/1900/2100 7.2Mbps HSDPA, 32GB internal memory, and a microSD memory card. Besides that, the Samsung Tab also has what iPad is lack of – camera and Flash Player. The Tab has two cameras – a 3 megapixel camera on the back with a flash and auto-focus, and a 1.3 megapixel user-facing camera. Also, the Tab will come preloaded with Flash Player 10.1.
ll UK networks are expected to offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab and hopefully 3G data plans will be available too. Samsung’s Tom Richter also added that providers might be offering a “two SIM option” so users can run the tablet and a mobile phone from the same number.
