Samsung Galaxy Tab Official All Four Major US Carriers

Posted by at 7:26 pm on September 16, 2010

Samsung tonight confirmed plans to ship the Galaxy Tab to the US through all major carriers. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon will all have versions of the seven-inch Android tablet. All of them will share the 1GHz processor built-in 3G, front and back cameras and skinned Android 2.2 of the European edition.

Most changes will be limited to software. AT&T’s version will have an app to streamline connecting to Wi-Fi as well as an AT&T Radio app. Verizon’s additions are great and will bring its Rhapsody-based V Cast Music store, its Video on Demand service and VZ Navigator as well as preloaded copies of the games Let’s Golf and a port of the iOS game NOVA. It will also have a deep blue back to stand out instead of the reference Galaxy Tab’s white.

So far  all of the carriers have avoided committing to the launches dates  or have given pricing for the tablet; Verizon expects a release in “coming weeks,” while AT&T  has said “coming months.” The iPad-style keyboard dock and a GPS will cost $100, and the HDMI will cost $50. European pricing is over $1,000 for an unsubsidized model and may point to very high prices.
