Touch screen tablet fans will recall that Samsung revealed a Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab back in October of last year, followed by.. silence. As time passed numerous other companies announced their own Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets, and now that Apple’s iPad2 is out, Samsung now faces intense competition in both hardware specs and price. In response it seems like Samsung has revived their plans to release the Wi-Fi only version.. a leaked Samsung flyer has surfaced stating that this version will soon be out in the US on April 4, and will be competitively priced at $399.
With Samsung’s release of the wifi tablet in the lower price range, it seems that the specs will also be mid-range compared today’s latest tablets. For example the processor will only be a single core, and the operating system will still be the older version (Android 2.2 Froyo).
Personally I think this is a pretty good deal, assuming you only use it to browse the internet – no expensive data packages will be required and you won’t need to sign a long term contract with the likes of Verizon or Sprint. The single core processor is more than adequate for watching HD video, surfing the web, running apps, and playing most games – unless you plan on using your tablet for hard core 3D gaming.
