A leaked pic from an upcoming Best Buy buyer’s guide reveals the retail giant will sell a WiFi-only version of the Galaxy Tab for $499.99 – that’s $100 cheaper than Verizon’s 3G version and no contract is required. This means the total cost of ownership is only $500 and you can tether it to your Android phone when you want to get online.
Originally when we went hands-on with the Tab, Samsung said they had no plans to produce a WiFi-only version. I was pretty vocal that customers would want a WiFi-only version and made a point to bring it up again during the press conference at IFA, so you can thank me later when you pick one up.
Does a cheaper price change your mind about picking up the Galaxy Tab or will you still wait for the Honeycomb tablets that are coming early next year?
