The Samsung Galaxy Tab will be released in the US next month, as you know, but who knew that Best Buy wanted in on the action?

The store is already advertising the 7-inch Android 2.2 tablet in both a silver WiFi-only variety and WiFi + 3G versions from Verizon (black) and Sprint (silver). Prices start at $499 with no mail-in rebates involved, and the 3G service looks to be available from both carriers with a contract or a month-to-month plan. A Best Buy "mobile specialist" needs to be consulted for more details, though the one I spoke to had no idea what the Tab even was.

Whether Best Buy will release the device on the same days as the carriers is unknown, but the store will be selling it in November like everyone else. Also up in the air is whether the T-Mobile and AT&T variants will get the yellow-tag treatment as well.
