  • if t-mobile already has the samsung 7″ they def will sell the 10” and 8.9”

  • Article is not clear and contains errors. Galaxy tab 1st generation is not thin! its thick!

    In the spec list, the prices do not match version types! you forgot to mention the wifi only version. Prices reflect wifi only versions for samsung tabs.
