We already knew the Samsung Galaxy Tab was coming to the big four U.S. carriers, and today AT&T finally revealed their launch details. AT&T’s version of the Tab will go on sale next Sunday, November 21st for $649.99.
AT&T is the last major U.S. carrier to launch Samsung’s 7-inch tablet and they are also the most expensive. Sprint and T-Mobile sell the Tab for $399 with 2-year contract while Verizon sells their Tab for $599 at full retail price. Customers can also purchase the Tab off-contract from Sprint and T-Mobile for $599, so AT&T is the only one to charge $649.
Customers will be able to choose from two data plans from AT&T – a $14.99 pay-as-you-go plan for 30 days with up to 250 MB of data or a $25 pay-as-you-go plan for 30 days with up to 2 GB of data. If customers use all the data included in their plan before 30 days, they can purchase another pay-as-you go plan.
If you read our hands-on with the Sprint Tab, you know we love the device but asking $649 for it is a little much. I think a much better option is to visit Best Buy on Black Friday where the Tab can be had for only $549.
What do you think of AT&T’s pricing of the Tab and their data plans? Will any AT&T customers out there be picking up this device or will you hold out and wait for another device?
