It appears the Carriers and other retailers are really starting to get into the tablet price wars. A reader pointed out to us that the Optus My Tab has been lowered from $199 to $149 at most retailers (Big W & Dick Smith above) and even from Optus, even though their site still states $199. Why the sudden price drop? Well Telstra just lowered the price of the high-end 7″ Galaxy Tab to $299 and now Kogan has joined the budget Tablet fight with their own $189 tablet. Telstra are keeping their budget tablet, the T-Touch Tab, at $199 for the time being. It’s getting time to see the high-end 10″ tablets hit the market, so bring on the 10.1v pre-sale!
