$599 is a bit pricey for a seven-inch tablet, and while you can get $200 off that at some places
by signing your life away to a data contract, that really isn't any fun either. Thankfully Samsung
appears to have another option with what looks to be the $499, WiFi-only model that showed up in a Best Buy flier earlier this week
. That version has now been cleared by the FCC, indeed with only tests for 802.11 and Bluetooth wireless. The absence of 3G looks like it will save you $100 and obviously make the device a little less flexible than its bar-bearing brethren, but whether that modified cost:inconvenience ratio works out in your favor depends largely on the value of your income:restlessness factor.
