Starting today, you can preorder the Samsung Galaxy Tab at Sprint stores with a purchase of a $50 Sprint gift card, and get the Tab for $399 with a two-year contract. You'll then have a choice between two data packages: 2GB for $30 a month, or 5GB for $60 a month. Both of these plans come with unlimited messaging over Sprint's 3G network. Additionally, you can add on a WiFi hotspot package for $30 a month, which allows you to connect up to five different devices for WiFi sharing.
Over the long haul, two years with a 3G Galaxy Tab will run you about $1,120 with the 2GB data plan, or $1,840 for a 3G Tab and the 5GB data plan (not including taxes and fees), but don't forget to add an additional $50 if you want to preorder today (however you can apply that towards the purchase of the Tab when you pick it up), $30 extra a month if you want WiFi tethering, and $10 a month if you spring for Sprint's on-the-road Navigation app. Pricey? You betcha. Sprint is allegedly also offering up the Galaxy Tab off-contract for $600, but that info hasn't been made official from Sprint just yet. The Samsung Galaxy Tab will hit Sprint on Nov. 14.
