T-Mobile already slashing prices on Samsung Galaxy Tab, Vibrant phone

Apple Online Store“T-Mobile today quietly cut prices permanently on some of Samsung’s Android devices unusually early. Its version of the Galaxy Tab is now the least expensive of any US carrier when attached to a contract, dropping $50 to $350. The Vibrant has itself dropped down to $150 on similar terms,” Electronista reports.

“The reasons for the cuts aren’t known. The Vibrant is now a few months old but is still the network’s premier smartphone. Its Galaxy Tab was already tied for Sprint for the least expensive model on contract,” Electronista reports. “As the smallest of the large national carriers, T-Mobile has often had to use price to draw in customers and may simply be hoping to get an edge over others.

MacDailyNews Take: These aren’t the droids you’re looking for. You want an iPad and an iPhone. Move along.

  1. Nothing official has been said yet. The GSM iPhone could very be made available for T-Mobile and the CDMA iPhone could very well be available for Sprint early next year.

    It might soon become more than an ATT & Verizon co-monopoly. (I hope)

    I’m sorry to have correct you this way but Samsung did “sell” 1,000,000 Galaxy Tabs. They were all sent to North Korea as Dear Leader’s Christmas gift. Well they couldn’t very well bomb Pyongyang in retaliation so did the next best thing: flooding the DPRK with crapware.

  3. 2 nights ago HSN was selling these on tv . the women selling couldnt legally say ipad to compare galaxy to, so they said “iGuy” instead. they looked so stupid. I laughed when they said the android OS is going to take over and make iGuy obsolete. Sad.
