Wi-Fi only version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab to reach retail outlets on April 10th for $349
This Sunday, the Wi-Fi only variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be available at a few retail locations at the price of $349. The unit will be for sale at Circuit City, CompUSA and Tiger Direct among other places. You can check out the source link for a list of stores that will be selling the Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab starting April 10th.

Dale Sohn, President of Samsung Mobile, sounded thrilled to be releasing the Wi-Fi only version of the tablet. "We are excited to have the Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Tab join our growing portfolio of Galaxy-branded devices. The 7-inch Galaxy Tab is the first truly mobile tablet on the market, allowing users to comfortably hold the device in one hand while typing or navigating the Web with the other."

Loaded with Android 2.2 and equipped with a 7 inch TFT display, the tablet comes with 32 GB of internal storage that can be increased by as much as 32GB using the microSD slot.

Now that's the right price for a tab...although it is a bit old at this point...

I don't mind getting this one if I never had the ipad. But it's kinda hard to make the switch when you've already purchased apps for the ipad and have been using and storing data in those ipad apps. But yes, I have played around with the Galaxy tab at Best Buy, and they're pretty nice, light, and capable. This is a good buy.

I think that the only way this would really stand out in the market, besides the price, would be if it were to come with Honeycomb and a 1.2+Ghz processor.

Let's see add "Honeycomb and a 1.2 Ght processor would = $599.00 some of us would like a affordable tablet and this could be my choice. I have been thingking of getting the Verizon tablet for $199.00 and $20.00 data plan. most of my useage will be wi-fi but it would be nive to have the 3G for outside and motorcycle trips.

Hey jtalker1965! It may be better for you if you have a droid phone(or most new smartphone for that matter) with 2.2 already on it to use the WiFi hotspot(it can be unlocked if you don't have it) option. That would save you $329 and no contract.
