Retailers price up Samsung 7in Android tablet

Ouch

Application security programs and practises

Samsung's upcoming 7in Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab, is beginning to be priced up by retailers ahead of its anticipated arrival next month. Alas, it looks like it'll be a pricey offering.

UK online retailer eXpansys, for example, is taking orders for the 16GB version - if you're willing to pay £680. That seems a lot to us, even if the gadget contains a 3G modem, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, a webcam and GPS.

The equivalent iPad is £529.

Some confirmation for the price comes from Amazon Germany, which is asking €799 (£663) for the Tab. Clove wants £617, while an operation called Redstore.com which we've never heard of before is asking £648.

It's worth bearing in mind that some retailers do charge extra for pre-order product, especially if the price is not well known, but the broad consistency in the prices listed above suggest an SRP for the Tab of around £650, £599 at a pinch.

Which is plenty. Forget about the iPad - ViewSonic has promised a 7in 3G-capable Android tablet for £350.

Of course, that's the SIM-free price - Vodafone is expected to charge rather less, subsidising the device price with data airtime packages. ®
