Samsung and Verizon announced today that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will arrive at Verizon on 11th November with a $599.99 price tag. No contract will be required and the android tablet will come embedded with Wi-Fi and 3G.
” This is an incredible time in mobile technology, and as a company we’re excited to add the Samsung Galaxy Tab to our porfolio,” said Marni Walden, vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless.
This is the first time when the price has been actually confirmed and we know have some figures concerning data plans as well. For a monthly fee of 20$, you get up to 1GB data allowance. The Galaxy Tab’s 600$ price floats just below Apple’s price of $629 for their 3G iPad and the data plans are similar.
The competition between the two devices will be even higher now that they have almost the same price. And if we keep in mind that other android tablets will hit the market in the upcoming weeks, the competition will be even tougher and customers will have the hard task of choosing the best tablet that suits their needs.
