Continuing to stock up on tablets, Sprint just announced that they will begin selling the Wi-Fi only version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 starting on June 24th – though, you can pick it up initially through direct ship sales channels, web sales, telesales, and Sprint Business sales. However, you’ll need to wait until July 24th to purchase one in Sprint retail stores.
Similar to their roll out of the Motorola XOOM and BlackBerry PlayBook, there will be no 3G, 4G, or any cellular connectivity with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. In fact, it’s essentially the same model that you can pick up at Best Buy right now. Carrying a price tag of $499.99 for the 16GB version, there is not word if they’ll be carrying the 32GB model as well.
Despite not offering any sort of cellular connectivity, its price point is probably more akin to the desires of consumers all around. Still, Sprint mentions that the razor thin tablet would go nicely with their Overdrive Pro 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot to keep you connected at all times.
