Verizon cuts Galaxy Tab to $500

Posted in Verizon by Conner Flynn on January 2nd, 2011

Verizon has cut the price of the Galaxy Tab to $500 contract-free. The $100 price drop should take effect soon and will also include $60 of movie rentals from Blockbuster’s app or Samsung’s Media Hub. As a bonus, anyone who bought the Android tablet within the past two weeks can get a refund for the price difference. Can’t complain about that.

The price drop comes just two months after release and since we don’t have any information on how well the seven-inch slate has been selling, we have to assume that things are not good. Then again, maybe they are just trying harder to compete. Motorola’s Droid Xoom will be launched at CES next week after all.

Hedges was one of the first corporate users to show an interest in the iPad, switching the normally gigantic expensive displays at a trade show Medtronic sets up at with iPads at its booth. That was less than a week after the iPad was released. And now he has purchased 4,500 iPads for the company.

MacBook Air now $500 cheaper
The MacBook Air may be slim, but it’s price is pretty hefty. Thankfully, Apple is now selling the super slim MacBook Air for $2598, that’s down from $3098.

The slashing of the price is due to a cut in price for two of the components. The Intel Core 2 Duo processor upgrade for the Air’s 1.8GHz went from $200 to $100. Also, the cost of the Flash memory based 64GB SDD drive upgrade from $999 to $599. Now, you can configure a 1.6GHz MacBook Air with a SDD Drive starting at $2398. Still pretty expensive, but that’s quite a savings.
