Samsung Galaxy Tab price pinpointed to $200-$1000

Depending on who you ask, the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be priced either way above or way below the iPad.

The price of the first brand-name Android tablet is anyone's guess.  In fact, it is everyone's guess.

Engadget heard that it would cost over $1000 without a plan. That was refuted by Samsung, but O2's official German Twitter account tweeted that it would be €759 (about $972) in all -- a "€99 ($127) deposit to start off, and then €27.50 ($35) a month," likely over two years?

The German Amazon has it listed at €800, or more than $1000.  Ouch!

The Wall Street Journal yesterday said the Samsung Galaxy Tab would be $200-400 subsidized by a carrier in the U.S.  That means its real cost will be similar to the Galaxy S smartphones, or as much as $200 more expensive.  The Korea Times said it would "seemingly" be $300-$400 without a contract.  That's a pretty good deal.

So which is it?   More
