Wi-Fi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab will be available on April 4 for $399
Remember the elusive Wi-Fi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab? We’ve seen it all the way back in October of last year, and then nothing. It’s like Samsung forgot to release it. And time passed, and many newer Android-based tablets have been announced, almost all of which run Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the tablet-optimized version of Android, unlike the Tab which is, for now, stuck on Android 2.2 Froyo.
Well, according to a leaked Samsung flyer, the Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Tab will soon become available in the US. It will set you back $399, and will be in stores on April 4.
The problem, of course, is that the Galaxy Tab is both slightly underpowered (with only a single-core processor), and, as discussed above, runs an older version of the OS, compared to new tablets such as the Motorola Xoom. And while $399 is definitely not a bad price, it remains to be seen whether enough people will decide to ignore the aforementioned shortcomings and shell out that amount for the Wi-Fi-only Tab.
