US Cellular Treads the T-Mobile Path; Announces Price Cut on Samsung Galaxy Tab

December 18, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Closely following T-Mobile’s strategy on bringing about a price cut on the Samsung Galaxy Tab, US Cellular has also joined in the effort. US Cellular has announced price reduction on the device, but it comes with a clause.

The carrier is offering the Galaxy Tab at a price of $199.99, with a discount around $200. However, you will need to sign up for a 5GB per month plan if you are to avail of the discount.

Further, the new offer will also mean that you will either have to pay $54.99 per month for a PAYG messaging service or $74.99 for the all-you-can message plan.  It is up to you to decide whether the US Cellular price cut is alluring or not.

Now, if you are a Galaxy Tab fan who will need to download lots of data we wouldn’t say the price reduction with that clause is bad. The device that comes with Google Froyo 2.2 offers improved performance and speed, faster email, a powerful browser.

What we are now expecting is that other carriers might too go in for the cut. However, they – AT&T, Sprint and Verizon – haven’t yet said anything on that front.

But then, it’s all about competition. Meanwhile, we guess you already know that AT&T offers a plan that allows you to sign up at will.
