$399 with contract, $599 off contract with a November 14 release.
A report by Boy Genius this morning says that the Samsung Galaxy Tab would be priced at a believable $399 contract and $599 on Sprint (S) as a stand-alone purchase. No information was available about the terms of the contract but I expect it to be similar to AT&T's (T) iPad plan. At a savings of $200 over the two-year contract, MORESeth Weintraub - Oct 8, 2010 7:41 AM ET
Scale, search, apps and telcos are all critical to Android's success.
Google (GOOG) CEO Eric Schmidt said last month that scale was a key to making Android a big profit center.
"If we have a billion people using Android, you think we can't make money from that? All it would take is $10 per user per year."
Google can't make money directly off of the sale of the Android OS, like Microsoft MORESeth Weintraub - Oct 1, 2010 10:17 AM ET
An analyst examines the impact on iPhone shipments and on Apple's share price
In the wake of Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg's remarks Thursday -- which seemed to pour cold water on rumors of the imminent release of a Verizon iPhone -- RBC Capital's Mike Abramsky takes a look at the implications in a note to clients issued Friday.
He begins by saying he is not surprised Apple (AAPL) and Verizon (VZ) may MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Sep 24, 2010 10:24 AM ET
U.S. mobile carriers, for better or worse, have as much say on your Android experience as the hardware manufacturer.
I rated Android handset manufacturers earlier this morning.
There are four major carriers and a few minor carriers in the U.S. and all of them offer at least a few Android handsets. But it's what they do with their handsets that differentiate them. Each carrier has their own pricing and coverage differences as well. I'm not MORESeth Weintraub - Sep 22, 2010 6:47 PM ET
Samsung announced that they're selling 2 million Galaxy S Android phones on all four major networks. They're going with the same strategy on Tabs.
It is hard to argue with Samsung's strategy of making their phones available across all carriers. They announced that they are about to cross the 2 million Galaxy S phone mark in just over two months of sales in the U.S. They expect to have sold five MORESeth Weintraub - Sep 17, 2010 5:14 PM ET
With Clearwire experiencing growing pains, Sprint's best option for 4G expansion might be turning to a rival competitor for cash.
Sometimes the best allies are also the unlikeliest.
This might be the case if T-Mobile invests in Clearwire (CLWR), which is majority-owned by Sprint (S). Currently, Clearwire offers fourth-generation (4G) wireless network coverage to more than 41 million people throughout the U.S., but it plans to expand further to cover 120 MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Sep 13, 2010 11:19 AM ET
"Important details still being ironed out," writes analyst. Could T-Mobile and Sprint be next?
Apple (AAPL) needs another carrier to maintain the iPhone's current rate of growth in the U.S., says Kaufman Bros.'s Shaw Wu in a note to clients Monday, but it doesn't necessarily have to be Verizon (VZ).
According to Wu, Apple's share of AT&T's (T) 90-million subscriber base is approaching saturation. Verizon, with 93 million subscribers, would be the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 23, 2010 9:05 AM ET
As Google moves into (and starts to depend on) ISPs' business, is it having an easier time seeing things from their point of view?
It's now clear that Google underestimated the public's desire for true net neutrality over both wireless and wired services -- something the company quickly discovered after issuing a joint policy recommendation with Verizon last week.
Google tried to explain its thinking with a couple of posts, but so far MORESeth Weintraub - Aug 15, 2010 10:18 PM ET
If a snapped circular is to be believed, Best Buy Mobile will soon be carrying a white version of Sprint's popular EVO starting July 11th.
PhoneArena.com took a picture of a purported Best Buy circular (right, full sized, below) which seems to indicate that Sprint's EVO 4G will be coming in White. The white EVO is expected to be a Best Buy Mobile exclusive until August, and orders are supposed to MORESeth Weintraub - Jun 18, 2010 11:45 AM ET
That monster 4.3 inch screen isn't only the EVO's biggest asset, it might be its biggest curse.
Some reports are coming in that the Sprint's highly-acclaimed EVO 4G Smartphone may have some screen problems.
Last week, there were isolated reports that the EVO's screen was popping out of place, perhaps due to faulty glue. Unfortunely Engadget used this guy's screen as an example"
