WSJ: Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint to Carry Samsung Tab

Sorry T-Mobile fans.  The Wall Street Journal does not have much good news for you when it comes to the Samsung Tab.  According to the newspaper, Samsung has inked a deal with the top three US carriers that will see each of them providing the upstart iPad killer when it lands locally.  This isn’t to say that a T-Mobile deal isn’t in the cards though.  I imagine both parties will want to work something out. T-Mobile doesn’t want to be the only carrier not to offer the device, while Samsung could use the 30 million plus subscriber base as potential buyers.

The 7-inch tablet was unveiled earlier this month, and although US pricing has yet to be determined, it’s rumored that the device will run between $200 and $300 in the US.  Samsung has scheduled an event for later this week at New York City’s Time Warner Center where it’s expected they make these types of announcements formal and official.  AndroidGuys will be in attendance so you can count on first hand coverage.  Be sure to follow us on twitter at @AndroidGuys for live, breaking news!

    Hopefully Verizon won’t cripple this device by making Bing its default search engine. I’m hoping that the Samsung Fascinate sells poorly so that Verizon listens to us consumers about not putting crapware on our devices or limiting our choices.

    Why no WiFi-only version? It’s hard NOT to find a part of town (Austin) that doesn’t have free WiFi. No chance I’d ever buy one of these things locked into a carrier.
