Out of the blue, Samsung has decided to release almost a year-old Samsung Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi in India today. It is now selling on Letsbuy and listed as coming soon on Flipkart for INR 19,990. To remind you, it is the Wi-Fi version of original seven inch Galaxy Tab that went on sale in the country on November 10, 2010.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi was first launched in countries like Singapore in March this year followed by US in April. It features a single core 1GHz processor, 7 inch TFT display with 1024X600p resolution, 3.15MP rear camera, 1.3 MP front camera, Android 2.2 and 16GB of internal memory.
This is certainly an expensive buy at this price and doesn’t really make sense to grab it now. The 3G version of HTC Flyer, which has better specs and Honeycomb update is retailing in the vicinity of INR 23K.
On the side note, Samsung India should think when tablets like Blackberry Playbook are going for just INR 13.5K, why would a consumer pay for a year-old tablet, which isn’t even getting ICS update.
