What now, Verizon? Just a few days after Big Red lowered the price of Samsung's Galaxy Tab to $500 off-contract
, Sprint's version has shed $100 -- which means you can now score it for $300 on a two-year deal. As long as you're willing to put your name on the dotted line, that now means that Sprint can put you into a Tab for less money than anyone but regional carrier US Cellular,
which offers it for a bargain-basement $200
. Interestingly, Sprint's shift comes on the heels of an LTE-tweaked version
of the Tab for Verizon with a faster processor and better camera, suggesting that a WiMAX model could definitely be in the works these guys -- which might be what this "industry first" event
is all about early next month. Pure speculation on our part, but it'd make some sense.
US Cellular wrote in to let us know that the $200 promotion on its version of the Tab has actually expired -- now, you get two for the price of one at $399 after a $100 mail-in rebate. In other words, if you just want a single Tab, Sprint's the best deal in town right now.
