The Galaxy Tab will be available for $649.99. AT&T will offer two pay-as-you-go data plan options for the Galaxy Tab, a $14.99 pay-as-you-go plan for 30 days with up to 250 MB of usage and a $25 pay-as-you-go plan for 30 days with up to 2 GB of usage.
If customers use all the data included in their plan before 30 days, they can purchase another pay-as-you go plan.
AT&T data plan subscribers also get access to AT&T’s entire national Wi-Fi network at no additional charge. The data plans don’t lock customers into a long-term contract either. Customers have the option to change plans or purchase more data without penalty as needed.
“Consumers are seeking cutting-edge mobile computing devices and we’re proud to give them another great choice in our product portfolio,” said David Haight, vice president of business development, AT&T Emerging Devices. “Samsung’s Galaxy Tab is a sharp device boasting a brilliant screen for watching videos, a powerful processor and a host of cutting edge features that everyone in the family will enjoy. Pairing it with the nation’s fastest mobile broadband network and most extensive Wi-Fi network gives AT&T Galaxy customers the best mobile broadband experience in the market.”
“We are excited to bring the Galaxy Tab to AT&T customers for the holiday season,” said Omar Khan, Chief Strategy Officer, Samsung Mobile. “Its seven inch form factor, pocketable weight and robust feature set make it ideal for work and play. It’s the kind of device users will want to carry with them every day.”
The Galaxy Tab is running Android 2.2, and features a 7-inch enhanced TFT touch screen, 1Ghz Hummingbird application processor, support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and dual cameras.
And thanks to partnering with AT&T, the Samsung Tab automatically connects users to AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots to better manage data usage free of charge.
