T-Mobile dates Galaxy Tab and Bold 9780

T-Mobile today became the third American carrier to set a date for its launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the BlackBerry Bold 9780. Its version of the Galaxy Tab will ship November 10 and will cost the same $400 on contract as the Sprint edition due a few days later. T-Mobile hasn't said if it's selling the Android tablet off-contract, but it's likely to cost $600 if the option becomes available.

The T-Mobile edition is mildly customized with the Amazon Kindle and Slacker Radio apps common to US models as well as Qik for livestreaming and video chat as well as a demo version of the racing game Asphalt 5 HD.

We've already tried the Galaxy Tab, which across every carrier has the same seven-inch 1024x600 touchscreen, 1GHz processor and dual cameras. Each model comes with 16GB of storage and a lightly modified version of Android 2.2 with traces of Samsung's TouchWiz interface and pre-installed Flash 10.1 for browsing.

The Bold 9780 arrives a week later, on November 17, and is confirmed to support T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling over UMA. Apart from supporting the carrier's 3G bands, the model is the same as the reference version with BlackBerry 6, 512MB of RAM, a five-megapixel autofocusing camera and GPS. It should start out with a low price at $130 on a two-year contract.
