Amazon is stocking the Wi-Fi only Samsung Galaxy Tab for £299.
Amazon has become the second retailer to sell the Wi-Fi only version of Samsung’s tablet.
The Wi-Fi only Samsung Galaxy Tab is due to go on sale on March 31, also in Best Buy stores.
The 3G and Wi-Fi version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab is available for £349, even though it first went on sale for £500.
The original Samsung Galaxy Tab features a 7-inch touchscreen like the BlackBerry PlayBook, 16GB or 32GB internal storage, a 3.2-megapixel camera and 1.3-megapixel rear camera. The Galaxy Tab uses ARM’s Cortex A8 1 GHz processor.
We weren’t particularly impressed with the Galaxy Tab when we reviewed it, commenting, “Scrolling through, panning around and zooming in and out of web pages often felt very sluggish, especially if Flash content was present on the webpage.
“Adjusting the browser’s preferences so Flash content only loads when you tap on it helped improved responsiveness, but it’s still not as smooth and slick as the iPad’s almost flawlessly responsive touchscreen interface.
“The Flash support is useful as it allows the Tab to access websites, videos and online games that are off limits to the iPad. However, we did sometimes see video-audio sync problems and dropped frames on some streaming video websites, such as 4oD.”
Samsung has since launched two more tablets – the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 8.9.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available in a chunkier version, measuring 10.9mm thick and called the Galaxy Tab 10.1V and a slimmer version, with an 8.9mm profile .The Galaxy Tab features a 10-inch screen, while the Tab 8.9’s screen measures 8.9-inches, the same size as the LG Optimus Pad.
Both are due for release in the next couple of months.
