Samsung Galaxy Tab To Launch On Sprint Nextel Within Weeks

The Galaxy Tab will be sold on Sprint Nextel for as little as $399.99 with a two-year contract or $599.99 without any subsidies as the mobile phone operator gears for the official launch of the device on the 14th of November, nearly two weeks after it goes on sale in the UK.

Arstechnica reports that Verizon will be the first carrier to sell the Android-based Galaxy Tab three days before Sprint Nextel but only a model without a contract.

T-Mobile will reportedly sell the device for roughly the same price as Sprint Nextel and we reported earlier today that Best Buy will also stock a cheaper, Wi-Fi only version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, one that costs $499.99.

Sprint will be charging $29.99 per month for 2GB worth of data and $59.99 for 5GB data allowance. Both packages include unlimited messaging but no voice package.

The Android-powered tablet sells for £499.99 in the UK via Carphone Warehouse (with an additional £10 per month for 1GB data and one month rolling contract) and for around £529 when purchased unlocked from either Tesco or Carphone Warehouse.
