Samsung Galaxy Tab Pricing Details

How Much Would You Pay For a Tablet?

The Samsung Galaxy Tab comes with specs that are pretty impressive for a smaller-sized tablet (it looks pretty hot, too), but how much would you be willing to pay for it? New speculations put the price tag around $1,000 (which is double the price of the WiFi-only iPad) based on what it's going for overseas.

The Galaxy Tab is obviously being positioned as a lifestyle gadget, one that can compete with the iPad's lack of flash and cameras, but I'm a little flabbergasted that the price is so high. At $1,000, Samsung is definitely limiting its buying potential, and might even be setting itself up for failure once the next batch of tablets hit the scene. Considering that a tablet is not a full-blown computer, I'd expect their prices to be lower. What do you think — am I totally off base? How much would you pay for a tablet?

Since my first TabletPC was over $1k I wouldn't go much more over $700 now.

i don't have a need for a tablet. i own two laptops, one for everyday use and one for school [i'm an architecture student], so having another expensive gadget would be a bit redundant and useless!!

I do have a laptop and I like some tablets but i'm honestly about to replace it all with a netbook. I feel like it's a lot more efficient.

I don't want a tablet. I have a laptop, basic 15.6 inch, which is all I need for now.

I want an IPAD but the cheapest one in Canada (16GB and WiFi only) is $550. For some reason it just seems like so much. But for $450 I would have probably already bought it.
