Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Exclusive Carriers

Share And Comment

It seems as if Samsung is finishing the year off strong in the likes of HTC and Motorola. In comparison, Samsung is practically doing away with carrier exclusive devices. Just look at their most recent smartphone launch, the Galaxy. Each major U.S. carrier has the device in their offerings. Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile. GSM, CDMA, and WiMax.

So what about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab? Well according to a report from the WSJ, “Samsung Electronics Co. has cut deals with Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel Corp. and AT&T Inc. to carry its new Google-powered tablet computer, three people familiar with the matter said, a significant step as Samsung tries to take on Apple Inc.’s hot-selling iPad.”

Samsung Galaxy Tab, Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile?

If this happens, Samsung could possibly gain a huge majority of the Tablet market. While Apple seems to only make their network products available to one carrier, other manufacturers are taking the other road. Come one, come all. Last week, Samsung product executive Hankil Yoon, said that the tab “would likely retail between $200 and $300”. That’s before a subsidy, if any. With that price point and the tabs possible carrier availability, the iPad could have a major opponent very soon.

So what do you think? Is this the best step forward for Samsung? By the way, will you be purchasing the Galaxy Tab when it becomes available? Hit up our comments and let us know!
