Telstra Has Slashed The Galaxy Tab Price To $299

It was just over a week ago that Telstra slashed the price of the Samsung Galaxy Tab to the bargain basement status of $408. Turns out, they can sell it even cheaper.

The original 7-inch Galaxy Tab is now available to buy through Telstra for just $299 outright, complete with free delivery. When you compare it spec wise with other 7-inch Android tablets around, it definitely stands above the competition, although you do have to reconcile yourself to the fact that it doesn’t run Honeycomb (and probably never will, without some help from the custom ROM community).

Still, a sub-$300 price point makes a lot more sense for the 7-inch tablet category. Colour me tempted…
