The Samsung Galaxy Tab Can Set Its Own Price, No Need To Directly Compete With The iPad’s $500 Price
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is going to sell well. It won't be a blockbuster like the iPad , but it should still do alright mainly because it's the first consumer-worthy Android tablet. Samsung can even price the tablet well north of the iPad's $500 starting price. It will not matter. People will buy it even if it's, I don't know, $800. You might not, but there are enough Android fanboys that will. Rumors have popped up over the last 24 hours about the Tab's price. Some European retailer's pricing has leaked out although Samsung is saying it's all speculative because the official pricing hasn't been announced just yet. But still, it makes you think. The pricing ranges from €699 ($890) to €799 ($1,020) for the 16GB and 32GB respectively. Remember, the Galaxy Tab comes with a 3G modem and there likely will not be a WiFi-only model because Google requires cellular capability for the Android Market. But for a quick minute, forget that the iPad offers a bigger screen and twice the storage for the same price. It doesn't matter.
