A price for a 16GB edition of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 8.9 have emerged over on Amazon Germany, where it’s been priced at a handsome €606.50.
This converts to around £530 in British coinage, suggesting that Samsung is pricing it’s smaller Tab a bit below that of HTC’s 7-inch Flyer. Samsung has yet to officially announce UK prices for the Galaxy Tab 8.9; this is just us speculating based on the German pricing.
What hasn’t been specified on the Amazon page is whether or not this is the price for the Wi-Fi only version or the full blown 3G + Wi-Fi deal.
There looks to be some information regarding a free O2 SIM card underneath (“O2 Freikarte GRATIS”), which suggests the latter. Our GCSE German’s a little rusty and Google Translate didn’t help us out much either. So we can’t say for sure.
Interestingly, there’s also a drop down which gives you the option to select a Galaxy Tab 10.1 as well, but like Engadget, we were unable to glean any pricing info on the 10.1 version.
We’re chasing up Samsung for info regarding UK release dates and prices for the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 – we’ll let you know if we hear anything new.
