Price plan information from Singtel

Retailers sell the 16GB version for S$ 848.00 (provided it's in stock. People have been selling it on the "grey" market for higher prices).

So you get a discount of $848-$499=$349 for signing a 2-year contract @ $40 per month. The 50GB bundle is rather generous. It's not that easy to use up 50GB.

If you sign a 24-month contract with a home broadband plan, you'll get the 16GB 3G+wifi model for free! That's really a good deal!

Yu-Kym,

The only comment I would add here is to compare the price of the competiion. The Galaxy tablet is usually less expensive than the iPad2, and here in the States there is competing among data plans from wireless providers.

My plan is keep my Galaxy S, aka Fascinate here, smartphone for the meanwhile.

Let us know what you choose!
