One of the reasons about why the Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet didn’t do so well in the US has been because of its high price especially because it was tied down to a contract, and for folks with tether-capable phones or no use for 3G on the tablet – it was a waste of money. Samsung announced that a WiFi-only version of the tablet will be arriving and it’s finally here. The WiFi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab is pretty much the same Android tablet that was released last year, sans the 3G connectivity and bundled carrier data plan. Even though it retails for an attractive price of $349.99, one wonders if it’s too late. The Galaxy Tab runs on the outdated Android 2.2 that’s meant for smartphones, and there’s a whole slew of Honeycomb tablets that will be arriving later this year, not to mention the Galaxy Tab’s own successor (the 10.1″ and 8.9″ versions). Will any of you be picking up this tablet today? Don’t forget to read our Samsung Galaxy Tab review.
