Tesco To Sell Samsung Galaxy Tab For £529

Tesco will be selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab after eagle-eyed readers reported that the supermarket giant had listed the soon-to-be-released tablet on its website for a mere £529, matching the price of the device at Carphone Warehouse.

Both models are on SIM Free, which means that they can be used with any SIM-only packages on offer but Tesco offers free delivery and 1058 clubcard points as well.

However, CPW offers the device for £499 when you buy a mobile broadband package that costs £10 per month (with one month rolling contract) and provides with 1GB data.

We already reported that Orange will be offering the Samsung Galaxy Tab on a two year contract with the Tab costing a one-off £49 and others like O2 are already taking preorders of the most serious competitor to the iPad.

Apple's cheapest tablet costs £429 with Wi-Fi only and 16GB, while the 3G version adds another £100 and, unlike the Tab, doesn't come with phone capabilities, a front camera or an extendable onboard storage capacity.

The Galaxy Tab will be launched at the beginning of November and carries comes with a 7-inch 1024x600 pixels, one which has been thoroughly criticised by Steve Jobs during the companies conference call.

The rest of its specifications reads like that of a mainstream smartphone like the Galaxy S; 1Ghz ARM-based processor, 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, Wi-Fi, a 3-megapixel camera and much more.
