Samsung's Galaxy Tab, its 7-inch iPad competitor, will roll out on AT&T Nov. 21. Samsung executives are predicting Tab sales of 1 million units in 2010.

AT&T will launch the Samsung Galaxy Tab on its network Nov. 21. The tablet PC will retail for $649.99 at AT&T stores and online on Samsung's Website. While some other U.S. carriers are selling the Galaxy Tab with a two-year contract, AT&T is offering two month-by-month plans.

Under those usage plans, Galaxy Tab owners can either pay $14.99, for 250MB, or $25.00, for 2GB, of storage. AT&T's pay-as-you-go plan mirrors that of the Apple iPad, which currently dominates the consumer tablet market.

In addition to AT&T, other carriers offering the Galaxy Tab include T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Sprint and Verizon. T-Mobile launched the device Nov. 10, beating Verizon and Sprint to market by a matter of days. With that sort of coverage, Samsung predicts it will sell more than one million Galaxy Tabs by the end of the year and might expand its tablet offerings in future quarters.
