Sprint Galaxy Tab Launching Nov. 14 for $399 on Contract

Samsung Galaxy Tab SprintSprint on Monday announced that its version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab will go on sale Nov. 14 for $399 with a new two-year contract. There are two choices for a data plan on the device–$29.99 a month for 2GB of data or $59.99 a month for 5GB. Both plans allow for unlimited messaging.

The Galaxy Tab runs Android 2.2 and includes a 7-inch touch screen, a 1-GHz Hummingbird processor, a 3-megapixel rear camera, and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera. Customers can pre-order the Galaxy Tab at Sprint locations by purchasing a $50 Sprint gift card that can go toward the purchase of the device when it arrives.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab offers an alternative to the dominating Apple iPad, and it will be available on all four major U.S. carriers before the end of the year. Verizon Wireless announced last week that it will offer a Wi-Fi-only version of the Tab for $599 without a contract. Verizon customers will get a portable Mi-Fi hotspot for data with their purchase and can pay $20 a month for 1GB of data. The Verizon Galaxy Tab goes on sale Nov. 11.

During the next few weeks, we expect T-Mobile and AT&T to release pricing on their versions of the Galaxy Tab. Here’s hoping for more diverse options on pricing and data plans.
