Rogers, one of the major telco’s in Canada has just announced that it will be exclusively carrying Samsung’s Android Tablet (Galaxy Tab) in white.

The Samsung Galaxy tab sports a 7” screen and has both front (1.3mp) and back facing (3.0mp) cameras that also capture video at 720p. Under to hood, there’s a 1 GHz Hummingbird processor with 16GB of internal memory and it holds up to 32GB extra on a microSD card.  Additionally, the tablet runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo) and supports Flash 10.1, Wi-Fi and 3.5G mobile. The Android tablet has rocket mobile internet built-in and can be used as mobile hotspot for up to 5 devices.

Rogers is currently offering the device for $499.99 on a 3 year contract and $624.99 outright (without a contract).

Rogers has posted a new flex plan for tablets (iPad and Galaxy Tab) that start at $20/month for 500MB + the government regulatory fee. With the flex plan, the prices will adjust based on usage and will avoid you from paying top dollar for going over your plan’s data cap.
