Samsung Galaxy Tab price confirmed: £599.99

£70 dearer than the most expensive 16GB iPad?

The Samsung Galaxy Tab’s price has been a hot topic since its announcement at IFA in September. The 7-inch Android device has been the subject of much rumour and speculative price drops, with its initial cost having been stated as a wallet-bruising £700.

Now that row could be over, as word from a DSG Group representative – the company which owns Currys, Dixons and PC World – has confirmed the £599.99 price rumour that emanated from Amazon last week.



At just a whisker under £600 for the contract-free option, the Galaxy Tab is much more costly than most people would have guessed at first, and may well suffer at the hands of the more moderately-priced 16GB iPad – the most expensive of which comes in at £529.

In light of the news, it would now appear that the Galaxy Tab’s only chance for tablet supremacy lies in the network carriers that stock it in the UK subsidising the cost hugely through monthly contracts.
