Will the Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Tab spur additional sales for Samsung? Samsung

Both Sprint and Verizon Wireless have dropped the price of their versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab to $199.99 with a two-year agreement.

With at least two new Samsung tablets on the horizon, it makes sense that the tablet's price is coming down. And given the moderate success the company had with sales, I can't help but wonder if it could have done better by dropping prices earlier.

In my opinion, the Galaxy Tab should have been this price all along. After extended time with Honeycomb and kicking the tires on the Evo View, the Galaxy Tab experience feels more like a large Android smartphone by the day.

On a related note, three months after officially announcing the Wi-Fi model of the Galaxy Tab, Samsung has finally tapped the device with a $349.99 price tag and an April 10 launch date.
