September 3, 2010, By Alex Ion

Just one day after being officially introduced at IFA in Berlin, Samsung’s Android tablet, the new Galaxy Tab, has been officially priced by O2 Germany.

According to the carrier’s Twitter account, the 7-inch Galaxy Tab will go for about €759 (that’s some $975 at today’s rate) — which translates to a €99 initial payment and a 2-years contract that goes for €27.50 ($35) each month.

For our German readers, here’s their Tweet below:

For now folks from Samsung have announced that any prices floating around are pure speculation, but we managed to find out that they’ve already came up with a MSRP price in Sweden — 9,000 SEK including VAT, which is around €967 or $1,242. That’s hefty, no matter how you look at it.

Other than O2 Germany’s official reaction and the Swedish price, other sources have announced the Samsung Galaxy Tab to go for €699 (some $890) in France, others report that in Germany it goes for €799 (some $1,020) while UK importer Expansys has it on sale for £680 ($1,050) with a release on October 11 — as you’d expect.

Even if these are prices for the 16GB and the 32GB model, respecitvely, Galaxy Tab is not the cheap tablet we envisioned. Nonetheless, I don’t see it as a real iPad killer — not if it’s going to be that expensive.
