At this point, it’s easier to report which carriers won’t offer the Android tablet because Samsung just announced the Galaxy Tab will be coming to U.S. Cellular, the fourth carrier to support the device.
The press announcement did not contain any pricing information or availability date, but Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile will be rolling out the Galaxy Tab beginning November 10. Sprint and T-Mobile are selling the Tab for $400 with a two-year agreement, $600 without. Verizon is only offering the Android at the unsubsidized price of $600 with a month-to-month data contract.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab joins the Samsung Mesmerize, Samsung Acclaim and HTC Desire in U.S. Cellular’s Android lineup.
