This story cautions that, Budget tablet fans should not be too fascinated with the tablet's price as; they may get a chance to have thier hnds on Samsung's galaxy tab; which, lthough carriers haven't yet revealed their pricing for the Galaxy Tab in the U.S., accoriding to Samsung would probably be in the $200 - 300 range. And the commencement of Samsung Tab is nearing too. So wait and watch could be the policy for budget tablet buyers. notably Samsung Galaxy tab, apart from much better specs, will come with 3G and no wi-fi only Tabs at launch. --------
