Sprint's Galaxy Tab to be priced at $399 with a two-year contract

Last week, Verizon announced that it would bring its variant of the 7" Samsung Galaxy Tab to market at a price of $599 without a contract. Today, Sprint has announced the official pricing of its own Galaxy Tab offering.

Sprint's variant will cost $399 with a two-year contract. In addition, those that pre-order the tablet will receive a $50 Sprint gift card.

Sprint Galaxy Tab customers will have two data plans to choose from with their two-year contract: 2GB with unlimited messaging for $29.99/month or 5GB with unlimited messaging for $59.99/month.

“Samsung Galaxy Tab is another Android innovation for Sprint, adding a new category of wireless devices to the Sprint portfolio,” said Sprint's VP of Product Development, Fared Adib. “Samsung Galaxy Tab is a powerful entertainment device and business tool that offers our customers high-end features, including a blazing-fast processor, beautiful touchscreen for watching videos and Web browsing, two cameras, video chat capabilities and access to the Sprint 3G network with affordable rate plans that let customers take advantage of the advanced data capabilities their device offers.”

The Sprint Galaxy Tab will be made available on November 14.

"...2GB with unlimited messaging for $29.99/month or 5GB with unlimited data for $59.99/month."

So which are you paying for with the $59/Month plan, 5GB or Unlimited data?

So generous of them to offer unlimited messaging. We all know the terrible burden SMS places on the cellular network. :P

Technically because it's Android, you already get unlimited messaging thanks to Google Voice.

But this opens a whole new opportunity. With Gmail, you can make calls to any landline or mobile in the US and Canada for free using your Google Voice number (you don't need to get your cellphone involved). I wonder if this could work on this as well and get unlimited calling....

Not "technically" unlimited, as it involves your data plan right? Either voice or SMS on Google Voice, that it.
