Samsung Galaxy Tab now at HMV for £420

Bookmark and Share

The price cutting on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab seems to know no end, with retailers under-cutting each other’s prices on what seems like an almost weekly basis.

There have certainly been some striking reductions on the twin camera bearing tablet, which was originally anticipated to weigh in at between the £600 and £700 mark.

At first it was slashed to match the equivalent 16GB iPad (with 3G) at £529, before being knocked down below the £500 mark, with Dixons offering it at £469 and Amazon cutting its retail tag to match that.

If you look on Amazon now, you’ll find that the tablet has been cut again to £449, which is probably something to do with the new lowest price HMV is boasting – £420, and that includes delivery.

That makes the Galaxy Tab less expensive than the cheapest iPad at £429, which comes with the same amount of memory, 16GB, but doesn’t have 3G capability, only wi-fi. The Tab is definitely starting to look very competitive at this level.

Whether Amazon will follow suit and match this price, as it did with Dixons back in mid-November, remains to be seen.

Perhaps it’s no surprise, then, that Samsung is selling more of the tablet than the company anticipated. It expected to shift a million of the devices by the end of the year, but announced that it had reached that target at the end of the first week of December.

  1. I took this offer into PC World and they price matched it and gave me 10% of the difference off as well, bringing it in at £416something. Worth considering if you don’t have an HMV nearby.

  4. Hi Mike,

    I spoke to an assistant who got the manager and I showed him hotukdeals: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/samsung-galaxy-tab-419-hmv-online-i/826383 plus the link to the HMV website and he was happy with that. I thought he might call a local HMV to check it was an in-store offer but he seemed fine about it. Saved me a much longer journey and I saved a few quid too!

    This was the Slough PC World by the way, I was impressed with the service I got there.
