  • "iPad Killer" to Sell for $950 in UK: Report


    A purported leak from the parent company of an electronics chain in Great Britain is giving the first hint of what the new Samsung Galaxy Tab might cost. The entry level model of the so-called 'iPad killer' will retail for 599.99 - the equivalent of $950 US - without a contract, according to Paul Lamkin at Pocket-Lint, who cites anonymous sources at the DSG Group. This compares to 529 for an unlocked iPad with similar specs (though the iPad has a screen almost three inches larger than the 7-inch Galaxy Tab).

    DSG Group is the owner of UK retailers Currys, Dixons and PC World, which have said they'd be selling the Galaxy Tab through both unlocked and carrier-subsidized arrangements. The cost of the Galaxy Tab with a contract is unknown as yet, but it's instructive to compare the 599.99 ($948 US) recommended retail price for an unlocked 7-inch, 16GB Galaxy Tab to the 9.7-inch SIM-free iPad WiFi+3G at 529, or about $840, on the Apple UK Online Store. [ame=http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-Galaxy-Device-Cortex-Android/dp/B0042D75TU]Amazon's UK store[/ame] also has the device available for preorder at the 599.99 price.

    Last week, Samsung confirmed the Galaxy Tab would be available in the UK from November 1st. The tablet will be sold by the four major US carriers by the end of the year, but details on timing and pricing have not yet been released.

      I don't think there will ever be an iPad killer except for the next iPad itself. LOL!

      Do people really like the Android OS over the iOS? I found it to be much less "together" and the dev tools are archaic compared to the tools for iOS. Try running the same programs that are available, there's a big difference in performance.

      I just find it funny that everything is always over dramatic... Why must everything be a killler?

      Two products can easily co-exist! And we as cosumers always profit from that!

      There is no need for one product to kill!

      Although this is a step In the right direction, this product is dead in the water wth prices as they are . Smaller screen and no Android market put this way behind. Im keeping my eye on the notion Ink adam. Its my dream tablet.
