There have been lot of rumours on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 launch in Malaysia. Some said it will be exclusive to Celcom, while some even said it will launch next week.
What Malaysian Wireless knows?
Most of the “insider” stuff reported here are over 90% accurate. Unlike certain blog like “this one” gives you false report “with a feeling” that Celcom will launch the PlayBook first.
Anyway, back to the topic.
Celcom Axiata will be the first to launch the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1(16GB, 3G version), exclusively, for a short time period. Maxis may launch the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 too but sources close to Malaysian Wireless believe that Maxis might delay that.
As for pricing, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 from Celcom with a 24-months contract will not be lower than RM1,000 and it is expected to be priced around RM1.2k-RM1.4k. However Celcom might bundle it with some cool accessories.
Celcom is still finalising the device pricing with contract as RRP prices from Samsung changes from time to time.
The launch of the Celcom Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is tentatively scheduled between 2nd and 3rd week of August 2011.
