Wi-Fi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab is delayed by Samsung
As we informed you, Samsung officially confirmed that the Galaxy Tab is selling well and that the Android-powered tablet is on its way to meet the original target of shipping 1 million Galaxy Tab units to the customers by the end of 2010. This seems like a setback for all users who were looking forward to buy a Wi-Fi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab in order to save a few dollars from the expensive data plans provided by the carriers. Hopefully, in the next few days more light will be shed on the reason for the delay and an official date for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab will emerge.

I suspect the delay is because though 600,000 units were shipped, a far less number have actually sold. The carriers arent selling many, zo if a wifi only version was released and people didnt have to have a data contract, the carriers definitely wouldnt sell many. I'm into technology, as are my friends, and i dont know a single person who has actually bought one!

This thing is just as nice as an iPad if not better.
Too bad the sheep will not flock to it.
