WiFi-Only Samsung Galaxy Tab Lands April 10th!

Those of you who have been waiting patiently to get your hands on a WiFi-Only Galaxy Tab 7” will be happy to know the wait is over… almost.

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.

I swear if it is not one thing it is another. You will get the low down mid-show, but I am batting a thousand here the last couple of shows. Feel like a total Rookie.. I am being tested and reminded that no mater what you do the machines have a mind of their own from time to time.. It’s just how the ball bounces really. Fun for all in this show that’s for sure.
