Hands up who saw this coming? It seems from various reports that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab will not be priced at all competitively against the iPad, in fact it looks like the Galaxy Tab P1000, unlocked and SIM-free, will be retailing for around £600/$920! At that sort of price, can Samsung realistically expect the Galaxy to be an iPad killer?
Pocket Gamer has a good summary of the story, saying that it makes sense that the Galaxy will cost approximately £200 more than the 16GB Wi-Fi iPad, as it boasts two cameras, Flash support and MicroSD expansion capability, as well as being much lighter than the iPad, but even taking all that into account, it just doesn’t have the cache of an iPad, and that’s before we’ve started talking about all the Apple software and apps. Everyone knows the excitement caused when they show friends their iPad, but will whipping out your Samsung Galaxy cause the same wonderment? Probably not!
