Samsung Galaxy Tab to Come to Verizon, AT&T and Sprint

According to the Wall Street Journal, Samsung has cut deals with Verizon, AT&T and Sprint to carry its Galaxy Tab tablet.  If Samsung really intends to take on Apple's iPad, they are smart to leverage the three largest wireless providers.  Price is still unknown but should vary depending on the subsidies that the cellular providers will offer.  Samsung product executive Hankil Yoon said in an interview last week that the Galaxy Tab would likely retail for between $200 and $300. 

As the article mentions, Samsung has avoided exclusive deals with wireless providers to gain market share.  We already have seen this with its Galaxy S series of smartphones - offered through the four largest cellular providers - Verizon, AT&T, Sprint & T-Mobile.  As this point in time, there has not been a deal with T-Mobile to carry the tablet.

In addition, Samsung maybe revealing the Galaxy Tab at an event in NY on September 16th.
