Samsung Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab coming April 10th for only $350

The original Galaxy Tab to sell for a bargain price as a Wi-Fi only model.

Samsung has finally listed the Wi-Fi 7-inch Galaxy Tab model on its official website. The tablet has only been available with a data plan in the United States prior to the announcement and should be available this coming Sunday on April 10th.

Most surprisingly, the Wi-Fi model will come in at just $350, which is much cheaper than say the Wi-Fi only Motorola Xoom or Apple iPad 2. Given its specifications, the price is also quite the bargain. The 7-inch 1024x600 screen resolution tablet will sport Android 2.2, a 1GHz Cortex A8 CPU, 592MB RAM, 16GB SSD, front and rear cameras with flash, and Adobe Flash support. The only caveat is its somewhat outdated version of Android, which Electronista expects to never be officially upgradeable. Although for only $350, the Galaxy Tab is likely going to perform much more smoothly than other tablets in this price range anyway.

Samsung at the MWC and CTIA conferences earlier this year announced larger versions of its Galaxy Tab for 2011, which are the 9-inch and 10.1-inch models, both with Android 3.0 support right out of the box at release. These variants, of course, won’t be selling for the same price as the 7-inch Wi-Fi model, but Samsung could have a winner on its hands if the company can offer an attractive line of tablets for different price ranges.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
