Accessories for Samsung Galaxy Tab unveiled

Thinking of dropping £530 on the Samsung Galaxy Tab when it emerges at the start of November? That’s the Carphone Warehouse price for the tablet (or £500 if you take the £10 per month 30 day rolling data plan along with it).

And if you want to put even more money on the Tab, Carphone Warehouse is also the exclusive supplier of the most expensive accessory for the slate. And that’s a keyboard dock featuring a full-size 83 key keyboard, with connections for the charger and a 3.5mm audio output. It’ll cost £70 and will only be available from Carphone Warehouse until mid-December.

Other accessories designed to complement the Tab include a multimedia desk dock, which is a portrait stand that charges the device (£40), a notebook case which folds back to create a stand (£30), a leather slip case (£25, possibly doubles as a gimp mask given some crafty scissor work), and a gel case (£20).

Deep breath… And then there’s the portable battery powered speakers (£20), headphones in black or white (£20), official Samsung memory cards (from £9 to £24, this is starting to feel like the Generation Game), a travel adapter (£35), a USB data cable (£15), an in-car charger (£25) and a cuddly toy (not really).

If you bought the lot – only including the best stand and case, of course, you probably won’t need three different cases – it would set you back around £250, half the cost of the tablet itself. Still, there are plenty of options here, there’s no denying that.

Simon Stanford, Managing Director, Mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “This range of accessories aims to complement the Galaxy Tab’s features and improve the experience the device offers – whether that’s listening to music, watching video content, playing games or editing documents. We’re delighted to be able to announce a variety of accessories available at launch, with even more to come.”

More to come? Good grief. What next, the Galaxy Tab portable credit card shredder, because you’ll probably need it when you’ve maxed out your plastic on your matching cases, chargers, stands, audio equipment…
