It’s already confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be launched in the Philippines before end of October (that’s next week!) and we finally got the retail price down to the dot — Php34,990 (thanks to our source).
The price isn’t surprising (though I thought it would be a bit higher by a couple grand) considering its baby brother, the Galaxy S, sells for Php32,000.

So, anybody got spare change for a Galaxy Tab? Who’s buying?
