In a press release sent out today, Samsung announced the WiFi-only Galaxy Tab will be available beginning April 10th and some online retailers (Circuit City, CompUSA, Tiger Direct) are already accepting preorders for those of you about to explode in anticipation.
The new model will provide all the same features as the 3G model that’s been available for some time now. A 7-inch screen, front and rear-facing cameras, Android 2.2 and Samsung’s Media Hub will all be there. However, the best part about the new WiFi-only model is the price tag. While we can go to just about any wireless carrier and pick one up for $299.99 after we sign a 2-yr service plan ($499.99 if we don’t), the WiFi-only model is available for about $350 and you won’t have to worry about any sort of contract!
Honestly, it’s about time. Samsung’s second generation tablets will be hitting shelves this summer. Oh, and they’ll be running Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) opposed to Android 2.2 (Froyo) so you’re probably better off waiting, unless that $350 price tag has you all excited.
