Samsung Galaxy Tab is $600 this November 11 on Verizon Wireless

vergalaxytabhorizback

amsung and Verizon are opening the doors on Galaxy Tab sales beginning this November 11th. The price is a whopping $600, that’s it, no discounts, subsidy, or anything else. My guess is the first round are in limited quantities, so they won’t have a problem selling it to early adopters who have a deep inner desire for a less than optimized Android tablet.

Samsung today joined forces with RIM, Nokia and HTC by releasing their own statement towards Apple’s distraction of drawing the competition into their Antennagate problem.

samsung.200

Samsung is a huge company and it seems like they’re always looking to diversify. You’ll find the Samsung name on all sorts of consumer electronics, ranging from HDTVs and Blu-ray players to multifunction printers and digital cameras.

Samsung Coby Pro

Based on the number of messaging phones that continue to flood the market, there are plenty of people out there who appreciate the inclusion of a hardware QWERTY keyboard, but can’t be bothered with the complexity and price of a true smartphone. Continuing with this trend is the Samsung Corby Pro.

If you didn’t know any better, you’d swear that the new Samsung Corby Pro is a smartphone. But it’s not. It’s just a phone with a touchscreen display and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

If the iPhone 4G does not support multitasking, many iPhone owners may switch to the Corby Pro.. er not.
