Samsung announces Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Tab

Finally, there will be a Wi-Fi-only model of the Android-based tablet PC.

It may not be a full-on second-generation tablet as was rumored, but Samsung has introduced another new Galaxy Tab for our tablet-hungry consumption.

The highly anticipated, Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Tab joins variants already shipping with and without contract via five mobile carriers: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon.

Samsung says its Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Tab will ship in the U.S. sometime in the first quarter of 2011. No pricing or launch date was supplied, though.

In other mobile news, Samsung announced that CBS has joined its Media Hub service. This means programming like "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and "NCIS" will join content from existing providers -- MTV Networks, NBC Universal, Paramount and Warner Bros. Digital Distribution.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
