WiFi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab hits the FCC

Best Buy has already announced plans to sell a version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet soon with WiFi connectivity and without a 3G modem. Now it looks like we’re one step closer to getting our hands on the WiFi-only version of the tablet in the US, with the tablet stopping by the FCC web site for a visit.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab GT-P1010 is basically the same device as the more expensive 3G enabled version. Both feature 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processors, Android 2.2, and 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel displays. But there’s a chance 3G might not be the only thing missing. I’ve been seeing rumors sugsesting this model may also lack a GPS receiver.

    Can anyone (Brad? :)) comment on how big a lead time there usually is between a product’s FCC glamor shots and actually appearance on store shelves? Any anecdotes helpful, especially for establishing minimum lead times :) I sure hope the GPS rumor is wrong, but then, I’m hoping that the Adam is all that and a bag of chips, so trying to stave off the tablet lust until I’ve seen both of these in person. (Yes, I know there are a lot of tablets in the pipeline right now, so “both” might be the wrong word, but for now the Tab and the Adam look like the standout options …)timothy

    “But there’s a chance WiFi might not be the only thing missing. ”

    I don’t get it: does this Galaxy tab come with or not come with WiFi?

    Not having GPS would suck. The 3G is a feature I would not want. I wonder how much this little bugga is supposed to sell for.

      Sorry that was an error… it should have read “3G might not be the only thing missing.”
