T-Mobile, Sprint confirm $400 Samsung Galaxy Tab T-Mobile USA and Sprint have both confirmed this week that they will offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab for $400 with two-year contract.
Verizon announced they would be selling the tablet for $600 without contract.

T-Mobile will begin offering the tablet on November 10th, earlier than both rivals.

As you will need a data plan, T-Mobile offers existing customers WebConnect/200MB for $25 a month or WebConnect/5GB for $40 a month. If you are a new customer, however, those same plans will run you $30 or $50, respectively.

If you feel your bandwidth usage will be very minor, T-Mobile gives you the chance to use a prepaid mobile broadband rate plan, with the cheapest option being $10 per week for 100MB.

Sprint will offer the device for the same price with data plans costing $30 for 2GB or $60 for 5GB.

Samsung's tablet runs on Android 2.2, has a 1GHz processor, a 7-inch multi-touch screen and dual cameras.

"Samsung's tablet runs on Android 2.2"

That puts it a whole world above every other android tablet...in fact, it might be the first tablet to officially support flash.

Im not sure that you can take this info about Sprint's pricing as fact. They dont even charge that much for anything else. 4G service is only $40 a month and thats unlimited. I've been using my phone for internet thru tethering for 9 months (Palm Centro) which is only 3G and I've gone over ... well over 5GB a month almost every month with out being charged more. All I'm gonna say is that I'm willing to bet that Sprint's offering will be much more attractive than the competitors once all the details are released.
