Vodafone Australia puts the Samsung Galaxy Tab on Pre-order for a Price of AU$259; Shipping on May 1

Vodafone Australia finally has put the most anticipated Honeycomb tablet from Samsung, the thinnest Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v for pre-order with a launch date of April 20 and the pre-order for the Tablet is underway till 8PM today. Vodafone has sent a email that informs the pre-order info for people who have registered for more details.

Purportedly, this “exclusive” offer enables Vodafone customers camped out in the Land Down Under to pre-order the Honeycomb-based slate, with a trio of payment options available. A two-year agreement will cost you zilch upfront (but AU$39 a month over 12 months), a one-year plan dings your credit card for AU$259.

And if you want to have a contract free tablet, it will cost AU$729, if you make a pre-order today the Tablet should arrive in your hand on May 1. Anyway, check out the Hands-on video of Vodafone Australia to see the Tablet in action.
