I just got word that Rogers will be carrying the Galaxy Tab here in Canada, with a due of “some time soon”. I don’t know what that means in the rest of the space time continuum, but it’s a start.

The announcement came on the Rogers Red Board blog and is tied in with a Samsung press release giving the same info. No word if Bell or Telus will be carrying the much-awaited first “iPad killer”, but my gut feel is that Galaxy Tab might be a Rogers (Fido?) only deal.

The larger question will be: if this is a device that is really only available through cell providers, will consumers scoop them up as readily as the iPad?

I would like to try one out and see how it compares to my iPad. The Galaxy Tab is a cool device, the question remains…will consumers agree.
