Galaxy Tab Priced Out

October 11, 2010 23:08:32.541

I don't think the Galaxy Tab is as primed for success as some people think it is - PC World notes an issue with the pricing model:

Users can get the Galaxy Tab without a contract, but with the price expected to be $650, it doesn't offer a very compelling challenge to the $499 16GB iPad, or even the contract-free 3G iPad at $629

It's cheaper with the contract, but unlike the 3g iPad, you have to sign a contract for 2 years. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think that will limit the appeal. Here's the real takeawy quote from the PC World piece:

People expect Apple products to cost a premium and it is just assumed that non-Apple products should be cheaper.
