Mistakes happen. And, usually when a company is dealing with multiple versions of something, they tend to happen more often. For example, if a company happens to have two different tablets shipping in the near future, it's possible that someone typing up the specifications for one of them might, say, make a few mistakes, and put the wrong specifications down.

Galaxy Tab GT-P1010 WiFi-only slate caught at FCC

Samsung's WiFi-only Galaxy Tab has been spotted crossing through the FCC, in the shape of the Galaxy Tab GT-P1010.  The second version of the Froyo slate lacks the integrated 3G modem of the regular GT-P1000, making do with just WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0.
