Comet, Amazon Cut Samsung Galaxy Tab Price To £399.99

The Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet has seen yet another price cut which brought it down to a jaw dropping £399.99 from Comet and Amazon, a full £20 less than the next cheapest price from HMV.

As a reminder, the diminutive tablet - which is the best selling model at Amazon - carried a suggested retail price at launch of £799.99, which means that it is now half price including free delivery (here and here).

The tablet has smartphone capabilities, has a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage (expandable to 48GB), a 7-inch screen capable of showing 1024x600 pixels, Android 2.2 and everything you can expect from a top of the range handset like the Samsung Galaxy S.

Add to that the fact that it comes with a £200 entertainment package from Samsung for a limited period of time and you have a compelling deal when compared to the Apple iPad 3G or the Dell Streak.

We'd suggest that you throw in the newly introduced The One uncapped data plan from Three which costs £25 per month and will allow you to get a few thousands minutes and texts as well as unlimited data allowance. You can even use it as a wireless hotspot to give other devices access to the web.
