We may not know exactly when Samsung plans on releasing the Wi-Fi only Galaxy Tab, but new FCC documentation shows that the device does in fact exist.  As you might expect, this version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab was only tested for WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity while it was in the FCC labs. When it comes to gadgets, we very rarely opt for devices with fewer features, but in this case it’s pretty safe to say that less is more.

By removing the 3G chip from the Galaxy Tab, Samsung should be able to shave off at least $100 from the price tag. A $500 7 inch tablet may still be way out of reach for most consumers, but it’s certainly a lot more intriguing than having to pay $399 plus two years of data connection charges to your favorite service provider.
