Following up on the story from last week regarding the supposed T-Mobile two-day sale that begins Friday November 16th; it turns out there’s definitely some truth to the sale. Today we’re getting wind of the full device rundown as well as the official pricing of each Samsung device, given you sign on the dotted line for that two-year contract.
First the bad news: These prices are after a mail-in rebate. Now, what we’re looking at is the Galaxy Note II and the 32GB Galaxy S III for $199.99 each with a two-year classic plan after rebate. All other Samsung devices will be free on contract after rebate including but not limited to the 16GB Galaxy S III, Galaxy S II, Relay, and Blaze 4G amongst a slew of others. Additionally, you can pick up the Galaxy Tab 10.1 for $299.99, after rebate of course.
Granted, the contracts aren’t for everyone, especially this day and age. However, there are still a ton of folks out there that rely on these sales every couple of years to score a nice device at a great price.
It always brings a smile to my face when source drops for any Android device. While it has of no use to me or the average Joe, it will be put to good use by many independent developers. After all, source code means more stable custom ROM’s for us rooted users. Today Samsung has released the Ice Cream Sandwich source codes (GPL portions) for the Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 7 Plus.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is finally starting to gain stride in nationwide launches, and Canada will not be ignored. On Best Buy’s online store, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is shown available for pre-order now and as seen in the pic below, available in their warehouse July 22nd (on shelves next day most likely). As you can also see, the Galaxy Tab running Android 3.1 Honeycomb will cost you $499 plus taxes for the 16GB model and $599 for the 32GB model. Both of which are Wi-Fi, not 3G (yet anyway).
Sure it’s later than the US is getting it, but it’s better than most other devices making their way north of the US border. Who’s getting one……I am!

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 launched this past Friday, but only the Wi-Fi version. Verizon Wireless is expected to get the 4G LTE version, but nothing else has been announced.
Recently, a version with AT&T radios as passed the FCC, but the question is if it will be released by AT&T. Recent rumors are suggesting that Bell network in Canada will be getting the Tab 10.1. If I were a betting man, I would have to say that this FCC approval means that you are going to see it launched up north in the very near future.
Samsung looks to be taking a few notes from Sony and Apple on how to keep your family of electronics connected, making a better end-user experience as we now hear that Samsung TVs will be able to stream content to the Samsung Galaxy S2 and Tab 10.1 that we saw launched at MWC 2011.
The Samsung line of TVs that currently supports this functionality is the D7000 and D8000, and likely this will be a feature to come on most new models as well, however there has been no comments on whether it would work on older Samsung TV models. We’ll go ahead and say it’s very unlikely, but that said, it’s a great direction to go in unifying your products.
