Three announces Samsung Galaxy Tab pricing

Three is the first operator to announce tariffs for the incoming Samsung Galaxy Tab - but break those piggy banks, kids, the purported iPad killer will initially only be available on SIM-only one-month plans, and therefore, at full price.

 

The UK's smallest major network has announced four tariffs for consumers buying the Android-powered Galaxy Tab. If you want to make voice calls (in your face, iPad), you'll want to go for the SIM10 (£10 a month including 100 any network minutes, 2000 Three-to-Three minutes, 3000 texts and 1GB data) or SIM15 (£15 a month including 300 any network minutes, 2000 Three-to-Three minutes, 3000 texts and 1GB data.

 

However, if you want to keep your current handset as the main mode of calling and texting, you can also pick up the Tab with a data-only, one-month rolling contract. These go for £7.50 for a gig, or £15 for five. Fret not though - you can still make the odd call and send texts at 10p per text, 10p to call Three mobiles or landlines and 25p to other networks.

 

The network hasn't ruled out the possibility that in future, the device may be available subsidised on long-term tariffs, but if you're aching to own one like, yesterday, you'll have to pay full price. Online retailer Expansys has posted the device at a cost of £679.99, but Samsung says prices have not been confirmed.
