Samsung Galaxy Tab: Pricier Than The iPad?
 
 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is the belle of the ball at IFA 2010...but that doesn't mean it will be a success. The latest rumors put it as being even more expensive than the iPad, which is not very heartening news. Electronista reports that Expansys lists the cost as a staggering £680.

That equates to roughly $1,047 USD, which puts the Tab at twice the cost of the iPad and still 40% higher than the iPad 3G. ARMDevices lists the cost at 799 Euros or $1,025, while Journal du Geek has heard 699 Euroes or $895.

If any of these rumors are correct, the Galaxy Tab is in some serious trouble. Honestly, I don't see how a slate that much pricier than the iPad can honestly hope to compete. But I suppose we'll know if it is possible (and if these prices are accurate) soon.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
