Now this is the way to ring in the Christmas season! US Cellular is now offering the Galaxy Tab for $200 with a $100 mail in rebate and a 2 year contract. This is a huge price drop from the $499 it was before, however the customer will be required to sign up for the higher 5 GB data plan which is going to set you back $55/month.
If you have not heard about the Galaxy Tab, it is Samsung’s competitor to the iPad. It is packing a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen, Android 2.2 (Froyo) , a 1 GHz processer, and unlike the iPad it has both front and rear facing cameras for all you Skype fans out there. Although 7 inches checks in as smaller than the 10 inches the iPad has, it is also smaller, lighter and more portable then the iPad. It is Wi-Fi equipped, has 1024 x 600 screen resolution, and comes preloaded with Swype.
Hopefully price drops of this nature are a sign of things to come, since there are many new tablets about to drop on the market in the coming months!
