If you are looking forward to getting your hands on the Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet and don't want a contract with a carrier it will cost you. The Samsung Tab has landed on Amazon and the pre-order price for the machine is listed at 799 euros. That is a lot of money and most people will opt to buy one through a carrier that will be subsidizing the price of the Android tablet.




Other speculation has the Tab selling in the $200 to $400 range depending on subsidies. You can bet the higher-end of that range is where the tablet will land. The Galaxy Tab is an Android tablet in case you have been living under a rock. Reports are that O2 will offer the thing for 99 euro with a 27.50 euro monthly contract for data.


The first offering will have a 7-inch screen. Samsung is working on an 8-inch and a 10-inch version of the Tab as well. The current 7-inch tablet will have WiFi and 3G data capability. The screen resolution will be 1024 x 600 and the machine has a 1.06GHz application processor with PowerVR SGX540. The battery promises 7 hours of use for movie playback and it has a 3MP camera, GPS, 1080p video capability, and up to 32GB of storage.
