Samsung Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi edition landing April 10th for $349.99 [updated]

Samsung confirmed Wednesday that the Wi-Fi-only version of the 7-inch Galaxy Tab will be available through retail stores and online beginning on April 10th for $349.99. The Galaxy Tab’s other features remain unchanged: it runs Android 2.2 (Froyo), has a 3-megapixel rear camera, a secondary 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat, and comes with 16GB of internal storage. The 7-inch display has a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, and the device comes with Adobe Flash Player 10.1 support out of the box. “We are excited to have the WiFi version of the Galaxy Tab join our growing portfolio of Galaxy-branded devices,” said Dale Sohn, President of Samsung Mobile. “The 7-inch Galaxy Tab is the first truly mobile tablet on the market, allowing users to comfortably hold the device in one hand while typing or navigating the Web with the other.” Samsung says the device will initially be available from CompUSA, TigerDirect, and Circuit City first, although more retailers will likely be announced in the near future. Hit the jump for the full release.

UPDATE: Samsung reached out on Thursday to note that its press release mistakenly stated that the Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab contains 32GB of internal storage. The correct spec is 16GB, and this post has been updated to reflect the device’s proper storage capacity. More →

We have been told by multiple sources that RIM’s very first tablet will be launching on April 10th in retail locations. Additionally, we’re told the OS goes GM (gold master) on March 31st and that when you boot up the device right out of the box, you’ll be prompted to upgrade to a newer version of the OS. We’ll have another hands-on coming up shortly but in the meantime, let us know if you plan to snag a PlayBook next month in the comments below, alright?
