Samsung Wi-Fi Only Galaxy Tab, Galaxy Player Debut at CES

LAS

VEGAS — Samsung executives confirmed that the company

will release the long-awaited WiFi-only version of the popular Samsung Galaxy

Tab in the United States

in the first quarter of this year.

No launch date or pricing has been determined for the WiFi-only Tab.

Samsung Mobile Chief Strategy Officer Omar Khan unveiled the device and showed off the

Samsung Galaxy Player and the Samsung Infuse 4G smartphone at the 2011 Consumer

Electronics Show here Jan. 5.

The WiFi-only Tab comes months after Samsung launched the Android 2.2-based tablet with both 3G and WiFi

capabilities, countering Apple’s own WiFi+3G on AT&T.

The Tab has sold more than 1.5 million units to date, Khan said, a revision over the 1 million-unit shipment number Samsung offered

just a few weeks ago.
