Default Sprint Chops the Price of the Galaxy Tab

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://androidandme.com/2011/01/news/sprint-drops-price-on-samsung-galaxy-tab-to-299-on-contract/' target='_blank'>http://androidandme.com/2011/01/new...99-on-contract/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Word of a price drop at Best Buy for the Sprint Galaxy Tab leaked out via some images last week, but Sprint has beaten Best Buy to the punch and now list their Galaxy Tab for $299 on contact and $499 without contract."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1294974675.usr309.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Let the price drops begin!&nbsp; With all the new Android tablets announced at CES I was expecting prices on the Galaxy Tab to drop but this is a really big drop happening sooner than I expected.&nbsp; With a $200 price drop, a great size (at least for me),&nbsp; reasonable resolution for the size at 1024x600, and a Hummingbird CPU that probably has the best mobile GPU other than the Tegra 2 that's a great deal in my book!&nbsp; It may not be upgradable to Honeycomb but at least it does have Froyo now.&nbsp; While I wouldn't want an oversize iPhone and over-sized Android device could be very useful thanks to good multitasking, good notifications, and widgets.&nbsp; Is $200 enough of a price drop for you to buy one?</p>

Default The discount bin gets more company

Sounds like the $299 Samsung Galaxy Tab will be joining the $.99 Windows 7 Phone System 7 Thing-whatever in the discount bin. Evidently neither is selling. I saw a Samsung Tab display at my local Best Buy yesterday, no one bothered looking at it, while a few feet away there were people lined up to play with the iPad.
