Well, it's more than we'd like - but it's less than we feared. Samsung's Galaxy Tab Android tablet, which it feels like we've been awaiting for years though it's really only been months, is finally coming to the UK in November. And after much speculation, we finally have a firm price. The Carphone Warehouse has started taking pre-orders at £530, or £499 with a £10-a-month data contract.

This is pretty much the same as a similarly-specced 16GB iPad, so though we would have liked the Tab to be cheaper - it's smaller, after all - at least it's competitive. Still, we reckon only determined Apple-haters will pay the same price for what's almost certain to be a less polished experience.

On the other hand, the Samsung can work as a giant phone. We guess that might excite some people.
