UPDATE: Plans and pricing have been revealed and we are sharing it with you. Sprint will sell the device for $399.99 in exchange for a two-year commitment to a data service plan. Sprint will also offer the tablet for $599.99 without a contract. Consumers who buy the Galaxy Tab from Sprint have to sign up for a monthly $29.99 plan that includes two gigabytes of data, or a higher end $59.99 plan with a limit of five gigabytes of data. For consumers who don’t want to sign up for a contract, Sprint customers can pay $29.99 each month for 2 gigabytes of data.
The Galaxy Tab runs on Google Inc.’s Android software and is smaller than the iPad with a 9.7″ screen. Unlike Apple’s device, it supports Adobe Flash, enabling it to show more video found on the Internet and many more options for everyday users. It has a camera on each side and a slot for expandable memory, among other features we will find out soon.

UPDATE: A leaked chart is being passed around the internet confirming the launch date for the Galaxy Tablet is going to be November 14, 2010. It’s always a great feeling to know that rumors turn out to be correct! We can’t wait to hear opinions on this tablet. Will it have many more features than the Ipad? Some say it will but we want the facts. No word yet on price but when we find out we will let you know. Will Sprint give a better deal than Verizon is offering with their new Ipad? We will find out soon.
Notice in the chart below the launch dates for the upcoming devices at Sprint. It seems the white HTC Evo will now be available in stores as well. This means the white Evo will no longer be exclusive to Best Buy which we all knew would happen sooner or later.
