We know the Galaxy Tab is looking to be a very impressive device. From the screen size, to the functionality, to it running our favorite mobile OS, it’s an all around amazing device. Well it seems that AT&T has begun training it’s employees to ready them for sale of the tablet. Word is that the à la carte data pricing structure has been released as well, let’s just say they are far, far, from impressive.
The source goes on to claim that, like the iPad, you can buy a non-contract data plan for your device. Now back when the iPad 3G launched users simply paid $29.99 for unlimited data, however, this came to an end and now users pay $25 for 2GB. With Apple’s strong ties with AT&T we knew that they had to pull some strings to get these amazingly low prices, but if these prices we see here are correct, Samsung must not have even tried.
The supposed break down is as follows:
- $15/100mb for 1 day
- $30/300mb for 7 days
- $50/1gb for 30 days
These seem, very, very high. So high that some people who want a tablet for media consumption may just result to the iPad and save $70 a month on a 2GB plan. That adds up over time and just from the money you would have saved you could buy a Galaxy Tab.
We sure hope these aren’t final and will let you know, as always, of any updates.
