Samsung phones n tablets- cheaper in Seoul?

I was wondering whether Samsung galaxy series of mobile phones n tablets would be cheaper in Seoul vs Singapore? Does anyone know?

A samsung 7inch galaxy tab 2 GT-P3100 3G+wifi costs about US$320 in singapore without telco contract.

I am pretty sure it will be cheaper in Singapore. Electronics are not cheap in Korea.

A quick look at a Korean website shows a price of about $480 for that phone. It is probably possible to get it cheaper than that at one of the markets in Seoul, but it is still probably cheaper in Singapore.

They only become cheaper if you buy them with monthly plan. You should buy them in Singapore.

Thanks. Was hoping to get some good deals on tablets but sounds like I should wait for the IT fairs in singapore rather than get in Korea.
