    The thing with pricing, 599 Is if you look at say Apple store Italy 32 GB Wifi ipad is 599 which US dollars would be $819.55. Now we all know damn well if you go to Apple USA's website that exact 32 GB Wifi only iPad retails for $599 USD. So chances are if this "ipad killer" does come out for that price it will probably be 599 USD in the US. Sorry but Europeans get screwed when it comes to exchange rate. I am finding that out being in Italy almost 6 months now. Not to say i would even think about purchasing this so called "ipad killer" just a fact that alot of people dont realize about the different pricing..just cuz its 599 EURO does not mean its going to be 900 in the US. I bought my ipad from the US apple store cuz i am a US citizen and i did not want to go to the local mall here and pay 819.55 USD for it!

    I hardly think that junk will kill the iPad.. IMO the iPad is a far superior device.

    Why does every device that's going against Apple have to be deemed 'the Killer'?

    Im better off getting the iPad, might aswell pay less for a company that is famous and will take care of my problems with the product. Plus the touch screen technology on the galaxy isnt mature enough to run without that hecktic choppy screen like motion. Only upside is that the camera is there, thats it. Either way its not a iPad killer, its there own device that they toke longer to make...which eventually can't beat the iPad.

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.

    Never heard of this until today, just watched a 10 min demo and I have to say I'm actually quite impressed, if it didn't cost so much I would trade my iPad in one right now, this would be a very good excuse for me to try out android

    Thanks for post

    You just earned yourself a thanks. I can't wait to see Apple beat every single competitor including the BlackBerry Playbook. Just wait and see, it's going to have a 6MP rear camera a 4MP Front Camera, an A9 Cortex Dual Core Processor and 2GB of RAM.......I bet you.....not to mention Retina Display.... and they'll hopefully make the damn thing lighter.

    I want one.lol

    I had a Captivate before going back to my 3GS, but I really liked it. If the Galaxy S phones are any indicator as to how to Tablet is going to perform, I'm really excited.

    The price is high, but imagine what can/will be possible with this.

    I want one, always have since I first read about em on A. I'm planning for my wedding soon and I'm still trying to save to get one..lol

    I also like that the OS !!!!IMHO!!!! is more adequate for what I fell will in essence,"Kill the iPad"...and thats mobile media. With the fact that you have to jailbreak the iPad to install Flash, is not something I find appealing. I love to hack and crack and device I can, but I've seen phones with native Flash support perform better then a hacked and cracked way of doing it. After the 2.2 Froyo update came out for the Captivate, I flashed it to a buddies phone and it is AMAZING...I want mine back..lol

    Sorry to ramble, but I like to type and my future mother in law is here and I was drowning her out..lol

    Point: Samsung Galaxy S Tab is something I will be buying. You don't have to, but I will.
