I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Holy overpricing, Batman. 

    1. its not overprcing.. it’s called super amoled and that alone is worth the price.  Seeing blacks as grey in an lcd is what drives me crazy. Now would I like a cheaper price? heck yeah.

  2. If that’s $30 per month, after 2 years you’ll have paid over $1200.  No thanks, as much as I was waiting for this, I’ll wait a bit longer for the Asus MeMo tablet to replace my OG Tab.

    1. The current Galaxy Tab Plus 16Gb wi-fi should be $249 or certainly no more than $299. Then there should be a 7.7″ Tab like this one but in wi-fi only flavor for $349-$399 tops. All of these hideously overpriced carrier-tied 3G and 4G tablets are just destined to fail!

  3. A dual-core honeycomb tablet for 700 off contract … Is it 2011 again?

    1. Quad core Tegra 3 does not support LTE.  You will not see any quad core LTE phones/tablets until Nvidia gets their act together with compatibility or someone else drops a quad core, which no one has even one on the table yet.

      1. Hauwei has a quad core phone, I think its LTE, I also believe they have a tablet also

  4. With a contract this should be 300. Amazon realized at 500 a tablet won’t sell. Samsung I love your products but you aren’t Apple, be the bigger company, charge less. An Android tablet isn’t worth 500 + a monthly contract. Once they realize that maybe I’ll get one, and if they don’t then I will just stick to my touchpad.

  5. Five Benjis for 7 inch tablet?  Sheesh!  And these data plans are ridiculous. 2GB is not enough for $30… shit, the 4GB special they had goin on ain’t enough for $30!  That’s what I have and I’m already almost at 1GB just 5 days into my billing cycle! If Sprint had better coverage I’d still be with them… 

  6. Great post, I enjoyed  reading it!  Keep posting good stuff like this.

  7. can u say ripoff

  8. I love my Galaxy Tab 7.7, it’s Super AMOLED + screen really IS that much better. I dropped $530 on Ebay for it and haven’t regretted it. I had a Transformer Prime with a reboot issue and got this instead. I can’t say enough about the screen, performance and battery life (10+ hours). It’s very simple to say “a 7in tablet should only be $250” and leave it at that, but I would simply argue that this my wifi version has a PREMIUM build quality that is far superior than that of the Transformer Prime. The wifi strength(very good radio reception), GPS(works indoors pretty well), Bluetooth(works with wifi on) and the screen is simply incredible. Put this next to ANY other tablet and the other tablet will look just a bit blurry, not joking. It’s that good. 
    Grant it, prices will drop but I can’t sit back on this one without saying this is sort of the Cadillac of tablets. Premium build = premium price. The Transformer Prime was $499 and that’s pretty pricey as well and as stated above it’s core components don’t work nearly as well, nor does the screen look nearly as beautiful as the Galaxy 7.7.

    1. Absolutely, you have to see the 7.7 and use it to understand how much better it is than all other android tablets

  9. I take there’s no way I can get that tablet without signing the contract and the two year commitment.
