Samsung to Release the Galaxy Tab With Four U.S. Carriers

Samsung today has officially announced the availability of the Android-powered Galaxy Tab to the U.S. market in the coming months. Although, no definite release date was announced, what was more suprising about the announcement is the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be released not with just one U.S. carrier but four major carriers – AT&T, Sprint, Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile. All four major carriers have already announced the availability of the  Samsung Galaxy Tab soon under their respective mobile offerings. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint were very specific in stating that they will be releasing the Samsung Galaxy Tab in time for the coming holiday season. But Verizon Wireless’ announcement was more specific in saying that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be released in the coming weeks. Likewise, not one of the four major carriers mentioned anything about pricing details of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. What is definite and possibly the reason why the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be carried by these four carriers despite the fact that the Galaxy Tab doesn’t have mobile phone capability  is because of its mobile Wi-Fi hotspot capability. The mobile carrier’s 3G and Wi-Fi services will serve as connectivity hotspot for Galaxy Tab users. Any guesses on how much the Galaxy Tab will be offered by all four major carriers?  Are you looking forward to its release from any of the mobile carriers? Feel free to share your comments below.
