Today the follow up tablet to the successful Galaxy Tab 10.1 was priced by Office Depot at $399, $100 less than what the original Galaxy Tab debuted for. This could signal a change in pricing of Android powered slates after the widely successful launch of the Amazon Kindle Fire.
The Kindle Fire and Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet are priced competitively and the rumored Google Nexus tablet is said to debut at around $200 all subsidized for content.
Samsung has recently made strides in the content arena with their media hub offering apps, movies and other content. Samsung also recently announced that they are starting an add network for mobile developers as well.
Hopefully these combined moves by the South Korean electronics powerhouse are indicators that hardware prices may drop.
