According to our friends at Best Buy, the Samsung Galaxy Tab wi-fi only version has been delayed until after the holidays (pictured above). We knew that a wi-fi only version was on the way and had heard rumors about a possible delay, but had yet to see it in print. This is sad, sad news. The $499 wi-fi only Tab was on our short list of holiday must-haves.
On a related note, our sources have shared some interesting information with us regarding the Verizon Galaxy Tab. While we all know it can be had for $599 and no contract, there is a chance that you will have to purchase a month-to-month data package when you buy the device. As you can see in the shot above, the VZW version “requires activation at time of purchase.” Obviously you could cancel the monthly data package immediately, but we thought you should be aware.
