Three picks up the Tab
Network to punt Samsung Android tablet
Three has become the latest UK operator to tout tablets: specifically Samsung's Android-based Galaxy Tab.
The 7in offering is "coming soon", the network said, but not soon enough for it to reveal device pricing.
But Three did say it will offer £10 and £15 monthly voice contracts, respectively bundling 100 any-network voice minutes and 300 any-network minutes. Both packages will include 1GB of data and 3000 texts.
Three will also do two Tab-oriented data-only deals: 1GB a month for £7.50 and 5GB for £15.
Three's version of the Tab mysteriously runs 20 per cent faster than all the others: 1.2GHz to the 'standard' 1GHz, as announced by Samsung. It's surely an error - or maybe Three has figured out a better way to differentiate its offering from Vodafone's.
Three didn't say when it'll start selling the Tab, but the device is expected in October. ®
