O2 To Offer Samsung Galaxy Tab From November

O2 has announced that it will be selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet from the 1st of November but failed to say how much it will cost or whether it will be available on PAYG.

We've known since September that O2 Germany would be stocking the device - where it will be sold for 27 Euros per month with a 99 Euros one-off payment - and it was therefore logical to expect its UK counterpart to do the same.

3 UK and Vodafone have both confirmed that they would do the same and we already know that Orange will also be selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab as we've managed to get hold of the tariff list (here).

The Android-based tablet will go on sale both instore and online with O2 promising that the Galaxy tab will "The Samsung Galaxy Tab, striking the ideal balance of portable size and power, is leading the way in a new category of devices", a statement similar to what it said when it launched the Dell Streak.

Like the latter, the Tab will be available on all mobile broadband tariffs and selected voice tariffs from O2. More details will be released closer to launch; more about the Galaxy Tab here (opens in new tab).
