This story is still developing, but it appears that there is a fatal bug in the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Honeycomb 3.2 update that came out today. The bug breaks Wi-Fi. Apparently it requires a network with static IP addresses instead of dynamic. I know how tempting updated the firmware is on your device, but updating…
So the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus has a Wi-Fi only version coming out soon. It has just cleared the FCC and is up for pre-order on J&R for only $399. That $399 will buy you a pretty impressive seven inch slate. It packs a 1.2 GHz Dual Core chip, 1 GB of RAM and 16…

Best Buy has them up for pre-order now for $469.99 and $569.99 for 16 GB and 32 GB respectively. That is $30 cheaper than the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and it is more portable. Which is better? That is for you to decide when they ship out between September 25th and 30th.
Sprint is going to start selling the 16 GB Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. This is a strange, but not unprecedented thing for a carrier to do. Verizon did the same with the original iPad, but they bundled a hotspot with it. Sprint is evidently not going to be bundling a hotspot with it, but instead pushing it when they sell you the Tab outright for $499.
Into Mobile is hearing things around the water cooler that the rest of us are missing. Apparently they believe that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that is launching June 8th will be a mere $399 instead of the previously announced $499. If this is true, then Samsung gets a humongous win in my book.
Samsung is offering free Wi-Fi to Galaxy Tab or Galaxy S owners in Japan. The offer is only open to the first 100,000 people to sign up. Each participant will gain access to 4,000 Wi-Fi hotspots for up to six hours from now to June 30th.
