Yesterday, Verizon Wireless became the first US carrier to offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab, a small device with a big price.
Many customers who’ve been eagerly awaiting their chance to buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab won’t have to wait much longer, as Verizon Wireless announced yesterday that they will be offering the tablet starting November 11.
The 7” Galaxy runs on Android 2.2 and packs a 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird Application processor as well as a camera and support for Adobe Flash. It also comes with a pretty high price tag of $599.99 and extra $20 a month for 1 GB.
Now considering that the iPad offers a larger screen, thousands more apps and an outstanding reputation for the extra $30, the Galaxy doesn’t sound like such a great deal. When customers are standing in the Verizon store comparing the two, the iPad is likely to be the winner.
