Verizon has lowered the price of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 inch Android tablet to $499. If you purchased one at $599 within the last two weeks you can also hit up Verizon for a $100 refund.
What’s more, Verizon is giving $60 in free movie rental credit to new customers. You can use the credit with the Samsung Media Hub or the Blockbuster app that comes with the US version of the tablet.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab features a 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, a 1024 x 600 pixel display, 3G, Bluetooth and WiFi, front and rear-facing cameras, and runs Android 2.2. It’s probably the best Android tablet on the market today, but it’s also one of the most expensive — even after this price drop.
The new price isn’t showing up online yet, but Droid Life reports that it’s available in some Verizon stores — hopefully with more to come.
