We just reported about a leak that has brought out the launch dates of some of the upcoming devices on T-Mobile. Now, a new leak suggests that the carrier has plans to lower the cost of the Samsung Galaxy Tab on its network.
As you might remember, T-Mobile had dropped the tablet’s price to $350 on contract back in December. That price cut had also led Sprint to come out with its own price drop.
Now, Tmonews has got hold of an internal document from the carrier. The leaked document says that the 7-inch tablet’s cost will be dropped to $250 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) from the current $299.99 contract pricing.
The tablet will be available with the new price tag from Wednesday, the 26th of January.
The new price tag is only $62 more than the CherryPad, and it is certainly going to infuriate the customers who had bought the tablet by paying double and that too only a few months ago.
If the leaked price tag is actually coming, it will be a great idea to extend the Tab’s consumer appeal since new tablets, such as the Dell Streak 7 and the LG G-Slate, are expected to hit the carrier sometime in the very near future.
But Samsung won’t have any problem to keep ahead on the Android tablet market, provided the company brings out the second generation Galaxy Tab with the rumored dual core processor.
We will let you know as soon as there is an announcement from the carrier. So stay tuned.
