Samsung didn’t mention how much the new Galaxy Tab 10.1 will cost when the company introduced the new 10 inch Android tablet earlier this month. But now Vodafone Portugal says it will sell the tablet for €699 when it goes on sale in March. That’s apparently the unsubsidized price for a contract-free tablet, since Vodafone Spain will be selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 for €349 to customers that sign up for a service contract this spring.

Those prices  work out to $962 and $480 US, respectively, which may seem a little high. But it’s worth keeping in mind that electronics tend to cost more in Europe thanks to the VAT. Hopefully this means the tablet will be cheaper when it makes its way to the United States, although it ill be up to individual wireless carriers to determine whether to discount the up-front price of the tablet for customers willing to sign a contract.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor and runs Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
