Sprint Drops Galaxy Tab Price to Just $300

The fact that CES was awash with tablets confirms what we knew long before we touched down in Vegas: the likes of the iPad and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab have started something big. Unfortunately, with new technologies like Tegra 2 and 4G, products like the Galaxy Tab are already starting to look a little bit out of date. Perhaps that’s why carriers are starting to cut prices?

Last week Verizon cut the price of the Galaxy Tab to $499. This week, Sprint is jumping on the bandwagon; the company has dropped the price of the on-contract Galaxy Tab to just $299 and is adopting a $499 pricetag for the off-contract version of the tablet.

Whether this is because carriers are feeling a little uneasy about all the new technology 2011 has already offered (we’re only two weeks in!), or Samsung is gearing up to announce a successor to the Tab remains unclear. Still, if you’re hankering for some tablet action and just can’t wait until the inevitable Mobile World Congress (February 14-17) announcements, then you might want to head to Sprint on your way home from work.

    cknobmanI wouldnt buy the Galaxy Tab unless it was $299 OFF CONTRACT with WiFi!!!!But if that happened, there would be no more tabs! Cause...well because people would actually buy them. Actually, if the price went down to $299, half the tech enthusiasts I know would buy one. Take note Samsung...

    Galaxy Tab is simply too laggy from my experiences.

    Unfortunately, the days of CULV Core2 chips in minidevices has died, replaced by the atom (a lot cheaper, little better battery, and the performance is hell in comparision) is gone, I can still buy something like a Archos 9 tablet.
    I'll take my real OS and go. ^_^
