Samsung Galaxy Tab WiFi-only P1010 ships March 31 tips Amazon

Amazon UK is taking pre-orders for the WiFi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab P1010, with the 7-inch slate expected to begin shipping on March 31. Priced at £299 ($477), the P1010 is £100 less than the unlocked, SIM-free 3G version that has been on sale for several months now.

Last we heard, the US launch of the WiFi-only Galaxy Tab would take place on April 4, though currently the slate is nowhere to be found on Amazon US. However, the dates certainly align, suggesting Samsung's cheaper version is finally ready to make its debut.

Although Samsung reached the market quickly with the original Galaxy Tab, it faced significant criticism over pricing. US carriers had demanded that the voice-call capabilities be disabled, and sold the slate with a data contract (generally lasting two-years).

    Kind of late isn’t it? Samsung might as well cancel the 7 inch galaxy tab and concentrate on 8.9 version instead.

    I’m one of those who likes the Tab, mostly because its a good e-reader and email platform. However, with a bunch of $200 tablets out there now, I think Samsung should shoot for a$300 price point. If they actually want to sell this thing in a world bracketed by the Xoom and cheap Chinese tablets and “e-readers” that are really just underpowered tablets, they need to hit the right price point. I see that as around $300 to $350, tops.
