Three UK stocking the Samsung Galaxy Tab – voice and data tariffs revealed

We have our first details of pricing plans for the Samsung Galaxy Tab today, with UK network Three pricing up the 7″ Android tablet through a range of monthly contracts.

The network is offering three voice calling packages, and two data-only deals, with the latter coming priced by the GB. 5GB of data for £15 seems like a decent enough deal. Here’s the list of tariff options for Three’s Tab offering:

Three voice packages:

- SIM10: £10 a month including 100 any network minutes, 2000 Three-to-Three minutes, 3000 texts and 1GB data

- SIM15: £15 a month including 300 any network minutes, 2000 Three-to-Three minutes, 3000 texts and 1GB data

Monthly data only packages:

- 1GB data for £7.50

- 5GB data for £15

Data customers are able to make calls and send text with their data SIM at 10p per text, 10p to call Three mobile or landlines and 25p to other networks.

No mention is made of a price for the Galaxy Tab hardware itself, though – which surely won’t be subsidised at all on these rather cheap tariffs.

Here’s the full press release, hot from Three. It’s reassuring to see the network specifically singles out the Tab and Android 2.2’s wi-fi tethering and hotspot options – so those features won’t be getting the chop. Hooray.

Coming soon to Three – Samsung GALAXY Tab

Three has confirmed it will be ranging the Samsung GALAXY Tab (GT-P1000). Samsung’s Android flagship Tablet.

A network built for mobile Internet, Three will provide fast and reliable 3G connectivity for the Samsung GALAXY Tab, making the most of product features such as phone functionality, front and rear facing cameras for video calls, downloading e-books, using GPS and searching the Internet with full Flash capability.

Nigel Field, Director of Devices at Three said, “With both the Android and tablet markets going from strength to strength, we’re proud to be ranging the Samsung GALAXY Tab. More than 97% of Three traffic over the network is data, so more than ever consumers need to make sure they’re on a network that can cope with the demand when buying mobile Internet devices like tablets. With both SIM and Wi-Fi connectivity, Samsung GALAXY Tab users on Three can get the most out of the product knowing they’re with the UK’s number one mobile broadband provider.”

Perfectly suited to Three’s high speed 3G network, the Samsung GALAXY Tab’s super fast 1.2GHz processor makes browsing the internet, watching YouTube videos and sharing social media updates a breeze.

The Samsung GALAXY Tab also features Internet tethering, so you to connect up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices any one time, using Three’s fast 3G connection.

The Samsung GALAXY Tab will be available on SIM only one month rolling voice and data contracts.

Three voice packages:

Data customers are able to make calls and send text with their data SIM at 10p per text, 10p to call Three mobile or landlines and 25p to other networks.

    I really like the look of the Galaxy but I don’t want 3G on it, hopefully someone else can do something as nice but without it?

    I like the 3G, means you could use it as a sat-nav or on the move

  3. I am guessing that these are similar to the iPad data plans. I believe that Three don’t offer the iPad, but provide a data plan for people who buy unlocked iPads direct from Apple etc. Basically it is a data SIM only deal.
