Samsung Galaxy Tab pricing may be a bit steep, Vodafone already has it on preorder

by 32 comments

Samsung Galaxy Tab has been officially announced just yesterday, but the price speculations are already all over the internet. Some retailers managed to put up some early (and a bit absurd) prices – 700 euro for the 16GB and 800 euro for the 32GB tablet.

Update: Vodafone DE is already taking pre-orders for Galaxy Tab – we got it straight from a Vodafone rep over at their booth at IFA 2010. The tablet costs 300 euro on 2-year contract and a 35 euro monthly tariff. What you get for that money is unlimited mobile internet, nothing else.
