-Hey, I'm Donald Bell and today we're taking a first look at the Wi-Fi only version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. This is an android 2.2 tablet with a beautiful 7-inch screen and a reasonable price tag of $349. Now, we first saw the Tab back in October of 2010 and for a while it was the best iPad alternative out there. My biggest gripe was the price, which is only reasonable if you sign the 2-year contract. Now, Samsung finally cuts up the carriers and offers the Tab we wanted from the outset, but it might be too late. The good news here is that everything we love about the 3G model is still here; the design is solid and easy to carry around. They're still a little too big for your pocket. The screen is bright and responsive. You get cameras on the front and the back, built in GPS for use with the navigation and all the Google bread and butter apps for G-mail, android market, YouTube, and Google Talk are all here and you also have the W flash support and pre-installed apps for Amazon Kindle, New York Times, quick video chat and more. So, what's the down side, well for tablets, android 2.2 is kind of old news at this point and Google is creating an android 3.0 operating system that's made just for tablets. We even have options now like the $399 Asus Eee Pad, which are twice the size and deliver a better tablet experience. On the low end, you can also find $249 android tablets like the Nook Color that offer many of the same features for substantially less money. So that's the Wi-Fi version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, it's a great little tablet that just arrive too late and it over shadow by the way of a bigger, better, dual-core honey comb tablets. For cnet.com, I'm Donald Bell.

Samsung's latest Honeycomb tablet takes all the great features of the 10-inch model and shrinks it down to a more compact, finger-friendly size.
A more modest addition to the Galaxy S smartphone line, the Android-lovin' Indulge would be MetroPCS' best phone to date, if it weren't for one glaring flaw.

The good: The Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi Android tablet offers a bright, responsive 7-inch screen, GPS, Bluetooth, and full access to Google's suite of mobile apps, including Android Market.
The bad: This Galaxy Tab is an Android 2.2 tablet living in an Android 3.0 world, and bigger and better tablets are priced in the same ballpark.
The bottom line: Samsung's 3G-free version of its 7-inch tablet, the Galaxy Tab, offers an appealing mix of price and horsepower, but it's overshadowed by the wave of inexpensive Android 3.0 devices.
