Compared : Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab.  Possibly the first, true, competitor to the iPad.  The Galaxy Tab, unveiled September 2 and profiled here, will reportedly be available for purchase through Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon, at an as of yet unknown, price.

The Apple iPad, in comparison, will cost one $499, $599 or $699, depending on if you purchase the 16GB, 32GB or 64GB model, respectively.  An additonal $130 is added if you want a 3G equipped model with available no-contract data plans for 3G service using AT&T’s wireless network priced at $15 for 250MB of data or $30 for 2GB of data.

So how do the two compare?  Here’s a nice breakdown of the devices from Skatter Tech, click here for the enlarged version.
