US Cellular Announces Nov 19 Release of Their Version of Samsung Galaxy Tab

Ruh roh! US Cellular has just announced their release of the popular Samsung Galaxy Tab device, releasing it just two days before AT&T has their shot. But while AT&T's version will cost around $650, US Cellular plans on releasing the Tab for a mere $399 after $100 mail-in rebate with 2/yr contract and, as they say, "never have to sign another one" or $599 with no contract. Two plans are available and "tailored to match how often customers will use Wi-Fi for their data needs."

U.S. Cellular has become the latest North American carrier to promise to offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab, following in the footsteps of Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T.  The carrier is yet to announce pricing or availability, but we're guessing it'll drop sometime in November 2010.
