Samsung Galaxy Tab now priced £599 on Amazon

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.

    I’m waiting for people to complain about the price, especially with it being more than the base iPad.

    Think about it this way - buying a Dell Streak on it’s own costs £470, but how much did I pay for mine with the contract? ZERO!

    The way you have to look at the Tab is for what it actually is - an Android phone with a 7″ screen - it’s not just a tablet, it’s a phone as well!

    In my opinion everything is just marketing from big retail companies like Amazon so they can attract attention and get more customers at the time of the release. I also believe the price of the tablet will be much lower!!

    We have to wait for Samsung to release the official price.

    Why in the world would you want a phone with a 7″ screen? Do you carry around a gigantic purse with you all day? How would you even talk on that?
