Samsung Galaxy Tab Pre-order @ Amazon $699

November 2, 2010 - Written By Scott Beard

Anyone on T-Mobile that wants to get dibs on a Samsung Galaxy Tab should head over to Amazon’s website and pre-order now. The device has shown up sporting a hefty $699.99 pricetag. I’m guessing that since we’re heading right into the holiday season that the price will get dropped somewhere along the way. Amazon has been known to get themselves into a good old price battle. Until then, if you’re willing to pay, its ready for pre-order, with a listed release date right around the corner on November 9th.

If you didn’t already know, the Tab comes packing plenty of Android goodness. It comes preloaded with Kindle for Android, Slacker Radio, and the awesome racing game Asphalt 5 HD, along with:
