Buy Galaxy Tab at $199 on Contract at U.S. Cellular
Ever since the highly anticipated Android tablet went on sale, we have seen some good competition in pricing amongst the three service providers in USA. And now U.S. Cellular has performed a price cut on the Galaxy tab. The 7” tablet is now available at just $199.99 upon the signing of a tow-year contract agreement with the company.
The price cut is a considerable one, but it applies only to the Galaxy Tab units bought with the carrier’s 5GB data per month plan. U.S. Cellular’s 5GB plan would cost $54.99 per month, and offers customers the possibility to use their devices as a portable 3G Wi-Fi hotspot.
