Carphone Warehouse has reduced the price of the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Tab to £489.99 as it looks to entice holiday shoppers.
The price drop comes on the back of similar cuts made by retailers Best Buy, Dixons and Tesco. However, Carphone Warehouse’s offer looks to eclipse them all as it is also offering the Tab for £470 with a 30-day rolling contract for £10 a month, which entitles takers to 1GB of data.
To sweeten the deal further, the high street vendor is also throwing it a free 16GB microSD slot to expand the total storage capacity to 32GB.
The new price point makes the Tab £40 cheaper than its closest equivalent, the 16GB 3G model of the iPad. It sports a seven-inch touchscreen panel with a 1024 x 860 resolution and houses front and rear cameras for video conferencing and HD video recording. It also supports Flash Player 10.1, something that the iPad markedly doesn’t offer.
In other news, a ten-inch version of the Galaxy has been reportedly spotted at the annual Green Device trade show in China (ironic, we know). Could the price war be only a prelude to the release of a new Galaxy Tab model? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
