T-Mobile is offering the Samsung Galaxy Tab Android-based tablet computer for $399 with a two-year contract, undercutting the price of Apple's iPad.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab launched on T-Mobile Nov. 10, retailing for $399 with a two-year plan. In doing so, the carrier beats rivals Verizon and Sprint to market by a matter of days.

T-Mobile’s Website also offers the device contract-free for $599.

Samsung first unveiled the Galaxy Tab for American audiences Sept. 17 with an event at New York City’s Time Warner Center. The manufacturer hopes that the combination of multiple carriers, Android 2.2 operating system with support for Adobe Flash, and 7-inch form-factor will attract users who might otherwise gravitate towards Apple’s iPad, which currently controls the majority of the consumer tablet space.
