Galaxy Tab Price to Drop to $500?

| January 2, 2011 | Reply

Verizon is rumored to be lowering the price of the Galaxy Tab to $500. That’s a drop of $100! If you bought one within the past two weeks, you might want to call Verizon or visit your local Verizon store to inquire about a possible refund for the price difference. Although this is by no means official as of yet, the Galaxy Tab should shortly be available for purchase at $500 without contract–and with a bonus $60 movie rental voucher, which can be redeemed using the preloaded Blockbuster Mobile app or at Samsung’s Media Hub.

New year means a new price for the Verizon-branded Galaxy Tab. Droid-Life has received word from a couple of VZW store employees that the big red network intends to chop a nice $100 chunk off its price for the 7-inch Android tablet. Though this move hasn’t yet been made official, the Galaxy Tab should soon be available to buy for $500, without any contractual obligations and plus a $60 movie rental voucher that can be redeemed in Samsung’s Media Hub or the preloaded Blockbuster Mobile app. You shouldn’t freak out if you’ve just bought a Tab either, as Verizon’s also said to be offering a benevolent refund for the difference in price to buyers of the Samsung slate who happen to have receipts dating from the last 14 days.
