Samsung Galaxy S WiFi

Samsung have done just that with the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi range, comprising of the Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 with a 4 inch display and 5 inch Galaxy S WiFi 5.0. The 4 inch version of this tablet is almost identical in every way to the Galaxy S smartphone (except for the phone), where the 5 inch edition takes the same formula and scales it up.

These tablets run Android 2.2 (Froyo), have 800 x 480 pixel resolution displays, 1GHz processors and of route WiFi support. The camera has been downgraded a little to 3.2 megapixels from 5 on both models plus a front facing VGA resolution video camera, but there doesn't seem to be a TV out port on these models unlike the smartphone.

Both devices still have GPS, even though that is of limited use in a tablet that can't roam too far from its wireless LAN. And because these run Android, then you can still run just about any Android application that doesn't need to use the phone. If you like, you could run a VOIP service such as Skype on the Galaxy S Wi-Fi, so you can (sort of) make phone calls. Both handsets maintain 802.11 b, g and n Wi-Fi connections.

Samsung say that the 4.0 should be available in the first half of 2011, and we are guessing that the 5.0 might follow shortly afterwards. There's no word at all on pricing, but Samsung say these should be a "reasonable price".
