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.

RE: MUCH better deal than Verizon's

Both deals are utterly horrendous. Just buy a stand alone unit with no contract and only use wifi.

I cant imagine anyone who would want this who doesnt already have a smartphone. And its not like it replaces your smartphone. So why would you need two 3G ready devices at the same time? If you need 3G use your phone, if you want to use the tablet find some wifi.

Verizon is the best deal if you already have a smartphone. That way you can avoid the service contract altogether for the Tablet and just tether off of your Droid or whatever when you want to use the tablet but can't get wifi.

exactly. If I'm already paying them $30 for internet on my smartphone, no way in hell am I paying $30 to have 2GB/month or $50 for 5gb/month on another device. How about I add another device for $10/month or something?

I would love to say consumers are smart and the market will adjust over time, but if it happens it's going to take a while. Too many people don't care how much it costs, they have to have the newest and best out there for image purposes (looking at you iPad group)
