T-Mobile secretly slashed off prices for their Samsung Galaxy Tab and few other smartphones quite early. Their Galaxy Tab version now holds the cheapest amongst all US carriers if a contract is included. The device’s price dropped $50 and can now be availed for $350 locked. The Vibrant is now sold for $150 with contract.
The rationale behind simultaneous price drops of some of Samsung’s devices is still unknown. The decision to lower prices down seems strange since Vibrant is Samsung’s leading smartphone. The Galaxy Tab is now tied with Sprint for the lowest-priced model on contract.
T-Mobile is the smallest of the leading national carriers and their marketing strategy often involves a series of price drops to get more subscribers to like them. Their early price drops are alarming, as this is a manifestation of short sales number. This is the same format with Garminfone after which they ceased manufacturing on smartphones months after dropping prices for their newly launched smartphones. The price drops may be due to strong competition from other Android supporters and Apple’s iPad and iPhone.
