The Galaxy Tab is available through various major carriers with price ranging from $599 to $899 depending on contract you signup.

As you would have guessed every reviewer is comparing the new tablet with the king of the hill, the iPad. All the reviewers agree that even though hardware-wise Galaxy Tab is comparable to iPad, but it isn’t as refined as the iPad because of the Android 2.2 software. Sascha Segan of PC Mag wrote in his review “ The Samsung Galaxy Tab is all potential. The first viable competitor to the Apple iPad, it’s a well-built Android tablet that’s comfortable and easy to use. But for now, it lacks the software experiences to make it worth its high price.”
