Amazon UK Lists Samsung Galaxy Tab at £799 ($1,240)

If Samsung were to sell the Galaxy Tab in the US converting straight from the UK price listed by Amazon (doubtful, but stick with me...), it would cost $1,240. That's in the same ballpark as Amazon Germany's price.

While we're still waiting to see if AT&T scoops up the Galaxy Tab for subsidized contracts, Amazon UK's £799 price tag is not making us confident Samsung's tablet will be any cheaper than the iPad. UK online retailer Clove has listed the Galaxy Tab at £615 ($955), which is more sensible, but still far too much for the 7-inch Android tablet.

Manufacturers rarely convert straight from other country's prices, so even if the Galaxy Tab did actually cost £799 in the UK, it's doubtful Samsung would price it at $1,240. Anything over $500 would be ridiculous. [Amazon via TechRadar]
