Galaxy Tab Is $US400 On Sprint, Data Plans Will Eat You Alive

Unlike Verizon, Sprint is subsidising Samsung's Galaxy Tab - signing your soul over for two years knocks the price down $US200, to $US400. The data plans are painful, which seems to be a running theme for the Tab.

For $US30 a month, you get 2GB and unlimited messaging, or for $US60 you get 5GB. I'm a little surprised 'cause usually Sprint's data prices are a cut above (below?) most of the other carriers. Which means the most recent march toward pricier data plans kick-started by AT&T keeps on chugging. (I'm not holding my breath that T-Mobile's plans will be any cheaper, despite the fact it's got a smaller network than the other three carriers.)

Oh, and this Tab thing seems less and less worth it with every new pricing announcement. But we'll see. Perhaps I am wrong! [Sprint]
