Galaxy Tab affordable in US; crazy expensive overseas

That’s way things are looking to shake out anyway, with Samsung execs dropping numbers between $200 and $400 in the States–or “Slightly more than the Galaxy S smartphone”–and with Amazon Germany listing the unit unlocked for €799, $1,030. Ouch. That doesn’t sound like much of an iPad competitor now, does it?

Of course we’re all expecting carrier subsidies in the US, and “slightly more than a Galaxy S smartphone,” which runs $200 on contract, is probably a reference to the subsidized price of the recently rooted Galaxy Tab. So what do you think that indicated for the contract price? $250? $300? Double isn’t “slightly more,” so I’m looking to pay under three bills and a signature. We’ll know for sure before long.
