Samsung Galaxy Tab UK SIM Free and Contract Prices Land – Tugging at the Budget iPad

We’ve all watched the price of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab start scarily high and slowly slink to almost reasonable levels.

Well, Carphone Warehouse has revealed their price for Sammy’s slate – they attach an asking price of £530 for a SIM free Tab or £500 with a TalkMobile contract.

That’s a lot easier to cope with if you remember Amazon’s punt that commenced bidding at £800, which the dropped to £680 and then rested around the £600 mark.

£530 is the same price as the lowest-spec 3G version of the Apple iPad. The SIMilarities (sorry) continue with both sporting 16GB hard drives.

The iPad will boast about its 9.7 inch screen compared to the Tab’s 7 inches. But remember the Tab packs a camera and is happy to support Flash.

As you’re going to need to factor in 3G connection for your Tab Carphone Warehouse’s own TalkMobile deal isn’t too shabby as it’s a 30-day rolling contract (so no 18 month shackles here) which costs you a tenner each month for a 1GB data allowance.

You’ve still got a month before the Tab hits the shelves so there may well be better deals to be had.

Remember thought – it’s not just Tab and iPad. There’s that BlackBerry Playbook sneaking around 😉
