With the Samsung GalaxyTab set to hit stores on November 1st T3 has been informed about the expected prices of the mooted iPad competitor with consumers looking to snap up the Android powered tablet reportedly having to fork out £599 for a SIM-free GalaxyTab or £199 on a 24 month contract.

Speaking exclusively with T3, John Doughty, Mobile Division General Manager of Micro P a trade only technology distributor confirmed: “Our SRP for the Galaxy Tab to our customers as a standalone product SIM free is £599.”

Doughty, who works closely with major mobile networks Vodafone, Orange, O2, T-Mobile and Three declared: “We will also be offering our Resellers the ability to sell the Galaxy Tablet as a network subsidised device at £199 on both Business & Consumer tariffs when bought as part of a £25 per month 2 year contract.”

Although a single network has yet to declare it position on the GalaxyTab in terms of pricing and contractual limitations, Doughty said: “The Samsung Galaxy Tablet is one of our major product launches for 2010, and we’ve had great levels of interest, and demand for the product.” He added: “A range of price packages will be available across all the major networks”
