Today Magenta announced that they will be the first MO (mobile operator) to carry the Samsung Tab. This would be the company's first Android tablet. The Tab will be available at T-Mobile retail locations on November 10th. The tablet will run customers $399.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two-year service agreement and qualifying rate plan. If you would like additional information on the Samsung Galaxy Tab head over to the T-Mobile official site and sign-up to receive alerts.
One of the best-selling points for owning a Tab is being on T-Mobile's HSPA+ network. The Galaxy Tab should enjoy a nice boost in download and upload speeds. This should make features like Qik Video Chat a pleasure to use.
I am still a bit weary on the list price -- $399.99. The 16 GB iPad with Wi-Fi starts at $499 so consumers might debate the use case. I think that if the Tab was $100 cheaper -- Magenta would not be able to keep up with the orders.
