In a surprise announcement Sprint slashed the price on the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Price drops were first initiated by Verizon when the carrier announced that they’ll be selling the 7-inch tablet PC for $499 only. Sprint joined in the bandwagon by slashing off their locked Galaxy Tab’s selling price to $299. Full retail price of the tablet PC is at $499 and $299 in which the latter includes a 2 year contract period. All other carriers are expected to lower down the prices for the Galaxy Tab or suffer likelihood of low sales figures, especially now that Motorola XOOM is about to hit stores in few weeks time.
Price reduction of the Galaxy Tab seems unsurprising due to the fact that they launched it running on a 2.2 Android Operating System, which Google said they wouldn’t support anything below the Honeycomb. The Galaxy Tab is not at all a low quality product; it’s just needs a few revamping. Samsung is also preparing for their next wave of Galaxy Tab’s update and upgrades to be revealed on next month at MWC.
