Verizon, Samsung Tap Galaxy Tab with $599 Price Tag and November 11 Launch
We just received official word from a Samsung rep that Verizon’s version of the Galaxy Tab is slated to launch next month. Due on November 11th, the Android 2.2 tablet will run $599 off contract. It should be noted that we’re looking through the press release and cannot find anything about contract pricing. Perhaps VZW will roll that out at a later date. The Tab comes with a host of Verizon apps preloaded titles including V CAST Music, V CAST Song ID, VZ Navigator, Slacker Radio, Kindle for Android, BLOCKBUSTER On Demand, and the exclusive golf game, Let’s Golf. It says that the Galaxy Tab will also feature the Verizon V CAST Apps storefront, with access to hundreds of applications but we’re not sure if that is any different that what one finds on say, a Droid Incredible.
Verizon customers can purchase a cool 1GB of data at $20 per month. If you need more data beyond that, well, your guess is as good as ours. For more high resolution images of the Verizon version of the Galaxy Tab, head to Samsung’s gallery.
