Configuration of WiFi-Only Tablet
If you compare the various, Galaxy Tabs currently available (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint & TMobile) it becomes obvious that there are fairly significant differences between the way they are configured. There are differences in memory, accessibility to Bluetooth keyboards and mice, DivX compatibility, etc. Has there been any info available as to how the WiFi-only Tab is going to be configured, when available? I'm waiting for one of these but I'm concerned that it will end up configured in some manner that I won't like and I would have been better to have gotten one of the currently-available models (probably the TMobile version) and not waited so long....I want one bad....

I'm waiting for this too. I have a Droid X don't need a Tab with 3G and pay the extra on my cell phone bill either..
Of course a 4G Tab might be interesting but still probably only want a Wifi only one

So reading up on the wifi only version of the Galaxy Tab and came across this that Samsung is already working on a Honeycomb tablet so the wifi only version looks bleak.

Well, I'm the OP.....just wanted to give an update. I broke down and got a T-Mobile Tab. They had a good sale going this past weekend. Actually, now that I have a Tab with 3G, I'm actually glad I got it configured this way. Always having to turn on the wireless tether on my Droid X when I'm not around wifi would get annoying. Unfortunately, here in the central part of NC, T-Mobile's 3G sucks, compared to Verizon. However, it always seems to have Edge available when the 3G coverage is lacking.
My advice....if you see a good deal on a Tab....especially a T-Mobile, get it....you won't regret it.

I'm going to hold out.. If they are going to do a Galaxy Tab 2 then that will probably have Honeycomp which is rumored to have a lot more TAB oriented software in it to make the experience better..
Hopefully CES gives us a January release date for the Motorola Tab or the next gen Galaxy Tab..

You can buy one from ebay like I did. The person who had it for a few months had the sprint tab so I got it w/out having to activate it. Plus some of the tabs can have the activation bypassed or just root it and freeze the sprint activitation file.
