Amazon has cut the price of the Samsung Galaxy Tab down to a more appealing £599.
When it first appeared on the online retailer’s site, the Galaxy Tab had a recommended retail of a staggering £799.
However, Amazon did its usual cutting of the retail price, and quickly pitched it at £680, which was the same price that another retailer, eXpansys, had it going for. That was still way too rich for our blood, and many other’s.
The new price point of £599 puts it on a better footing to compete with the iPad. eXpansys has also cut its price to £639, so hopefully they’ll all keep coming down. Clove is offering it at £617, which was its initial pricing. Play.com also has it at £599, the same as Amazon.
This is the 16GB model of the Tab, and as it has wi-fi and 3G, it compares with the 16GB iPad 3G which is priced at £529.
The Tab has a fair bit more packed into the tech spec in some ways, with twin cameras where the iPad has none, plus it also has hybrid phone capabilities. Samsung’s tablet has a smaller display, however, with a 7 inch screen in comparison to the iPad’s 10 inch.
However, at least at £599 it’s starting to look much more competitive with Apple.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab will be out on November 1st.
