Samsung Galaxy Tab Price Drop: Sprint & Verizon Reductions

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is one of the few devices from 2010 that managed to gain any kind of market from the mighty Apple iPad and that is because it was different. When Apple destroyed most that stood before them in the tablet PC market, one reason is that the devices were a bit too similar.

Along came Samsung with their creation and because it was so different to the iPad it found almost like a market niche. Now the Samsung tablet has been out for a while and as they prepare to launch their new line, the Samsung Galaxy Tab price drop has come with Sprint and Verizon.

We already heard that the price was dropping on the 7-incher but this is a further reduction as we learned through Todd Haselton of BGR. The Android 2.2 Froyo device has been slashed down to $199.99 on a two-year contract by both Verizon and Sprint although this shouldn’t really come as a surprise with the new models coming which are ridiculously skinny!

You can also head over to androidcommunity.com where they are talking about unlocking the device to run Android 3.0 Honeycomb. We aren’t too sure that this will ever happen properly but hats off to the guys trying to make it work.

What do you think of the Samsung Galaxy Tab being reduced by so much? Will you be picking one up? Let us know in the comments section below.

    I picked one up from Verizon when they dropped the price. I like it a lot because of
    1. The portability and weight
    2. The fact that you can slip it into your back pocket. :)
    3. Google Maps and turn-by-turn navigation
    4. Android Widgets and shortcuts
    5. Brilliant display and Gorilla Glass
