The Samsung Galaxy Tab will be launched in the US in November, with all major carriers – Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. Most of them are pricing the Galaxy Tab at $599 without a contract and $399 with one.
However, that is not your only option. Earlier, Samsung announced that it will be launching a Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab, and details of that have now started leaking out.
Pocketables has come across some fliers which say that the Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab will be launched in November itself, and will be priced at $499. It will be launched at Best Buy and will be available at the same time when the carriers start shipping out the preorders.
The Wi-Fi only version is exactly the same as the 3G version except that it doesn’t pack in a CDMA/3G radio. $499 seems to be the right price point for the Galaxy Tab considering that the base version of the Wi-Fi iPad is priced at $499 too, and has much less to offer than the Galaxy Tab.
