Galaxy Tab may reach AT&T with $50 premium
A leaked AT&T document courtesy of Engadget indicates the provider will offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet on November 21, priced at $650 off-contract. This is $50 dearer than what T-Mobile and Sprint charge on the same terms but is not yet official. The document also shows that AT&T will offer the same data plans as it does for Apple's iPad, including a $15-per-month, 250MB plan and a $25, 2GB plan.

What the AT&T Galaxy Tab will offer that both the T-Mobile or Verizon versions do not, however, is a preloaded Nook eReader app and AT&T's own Account Manager app that will let users activate the device and refill monthly credits. Owners of the Android-powered device from AT&T will also get access to the provider's network of hotspots around the country.

A formal announcement confirming these numbers and date is expected from AT&T in the near future.
