While news of the upcoming Galaxy Tab from Samsung is hard to come by these days, if “people familiar with the matter” are correct we will be seeing a multi-carrier rollout in just a few days, starting September 16th. Samsung is said to have made deals with these three carriers to launch to a broader audience and hopefully offering flexibility will result in more sales. This is a competitive strategy, Samsung is already estimating they will sell ten million units this year alone, and with a multi-carrier rollout this is very possible.
The Galaxy Tab’s pricing is said to be anywhere from $200 to $1200. The interesting thing here is how, if the reports are true, Samsung has managed to make deals with AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint with a non-exclusive tablet that competes with their own products. They must have offered the hardware at a very low cost to all carriers to get them to all agree on selling the Tab this coming Thursday.
We will be finding out soon the plans of the upcoming tablet, so stay tuned.
