UK network Three has become the first to throw their hat into the Samsung Galaxy Tab ring, announcing that they will be offering the Android slate.  As with the Dell Streak on O2, both voice+data and data-only packages will be offered, priced from £7.50 ($12) per month for data-only, or from £10 ($15) a month for voice+data.

Interestingly, even if you're only on a data plan you can make ad-hoc calls and send SMS messages, you just don't get any inclusive minutes.

Three voice packages:

- SIM10: £10 a month including 100 any network minutes, 2000 Three-to-Three minutes, 3000 texts and 1GB data

- SIM15: £15 a month including 300 any network minutes, 2000 Three-to-Three minutes, 3000 texts and 1GB data

Monthly data only packages:

- 1GB data for £7.50

- 5GB data for £15

What the carrier hasn't confirmed is pricing for the slate, and with month-to-month contracts we can't imagine there'll be much in the way of a subsidy on offer.  Considering we've seen the Galaxy Tab listed for £617 by one UK retailer, that's a hefty entry price to get on board.

Press Release:

Three has confirmed it will be ranging the Samsung GALAXY Tab (GT-P1000). Samsung’s Android flagship Tablet.

A network built for mobile Internet, Three will provide fast and reliable 3G connectivity for the Samsung GALAXY Tab, making the most of product features such as phone functionality, front and rear facing cameras for video calls, downloading e-books, using GPS and searching the Internet with full Flash capability.

Nigel Field, Director of Devices at Three said, “With both the Android and tablet markets going from strength to strength, we’re proud to be ranging the Samsung GALAXY Tab. More than 97% of Three traffic over the network is data, so more than ever consumers need to make sure they’re on a network that can cope with the demand when buying mobile Internet devices like tablets. With both SIM and Wi-Fi connectivity, Samsung GALAXY Tab users on Three can get the most out of the product knowing they're with the UK’s number one mobile broadband provider.”

The Samsung GALAXY Tab will be available on SIM only one month rolling voice and data contracts.
