Take it as you wish, but a flyer that (according to Droid Life) was passed out by Samsung representatives at a technology fair today clearly shows that a Wifi-only version of the original 7" Galaxy Tab is set to hit store shelves on April 4 at $399.

If this turns out to be legit, it may be viewed as a mixed bag by Android users. On the one hand, it's a quality tablet from a major manufacturer offered for $100 less than the iPad, but on the other hand, this isn't November and the original Tab's specs are easily dwarfed by the current generation of Tegra 2 slates that are becoming available.


Would you consider a Wifi-only version of the Tab for $400? Or would you rather hack a $250 Nook Color for a budget 7" slate? Let us know in the comments.

Will's typical, run-of-the-mill story is that of 'classically-trained actor turned Android smartphone and tablet writer.' If you catch him quoting Shakespeare, it's not because he misses it, but because he desperately wants his Masters in drama to count towards something.

    I'd buy a B&N Nook Color for $150 less. Oh wait, I already did and I love it. :)

    They should have dropped this to start out. Of course they didn't because carriers wanted everyone to get weighed down with their plans.

    I already got a Nook Color when it was $200. Have a SDK port of Honeycomb running on it. Can not wait for the Honeycomb sources to be released to get a fully functioning rom. The Tab would be interesting a $399 if it gets a Honeycomb upgrade.

    I am getting a NC for my birthday and i cannot wait to get it up and running.

    Agreed, $399 with Honeycomb and I'd be interested. Not with Froyo.
