Best Buy to sell Wi-Fi only Galaxy Tab for $499

Last week, Verizon announced they’re selling the 3G version of the Galaxy Tab for $599 without any contract. To some, that seems a little too in line with the iPad’s, the big name in the tablet field.

Best Buy is now advertising a Wi-Fi only version of the 7″ tablet for $499.99. The cheaper price tag and the savings on monthly data plans should make the Tab more appealing to those that can’t fork over 600 clams for the 3G version.

Best Buy’s ad also says the Galaxy Tab is available on contract or month-to-month plans. We haven’t heard of a contract option for Verizon, so it’s probably referring to the likely Sprint price of $399 with a 2-year contract.
