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.

I just can't understand these data plans...

2006 - I had a T-Mobile Dash with (truly) unlimited data. I recall downloading around 19 GB or so in a single month.

2007 - I upgraded to a T-Mobile Wing and I was still consuming much more than 5 GB a month in data.

2010 - I have a Samsung Fascinate with Verizon Wireless, and I have unlimited data.

4 years have passed since I jumped on the smartphone bandwagon, and the amount of data being consumed by users has got to be far greater now than it was then... where are these companies putting their profits? It sure doesn't seem like they're trying to expand capacity, and if they are, they're certainly not doing so in a viable way. Seems like it'd be more beneficial to spend a year or two losing money to establish a blazing fast network that could handle tremendous user load, and then reap profits for a few years and continue the cycle. But maybe I'm being unrealistic...

no its better to have things a little overloaded. then they can justify exorbidant charges, data caps and /price increases/tiered pricing
