You're missing his point. Simply "not using cellular radio" is not the same as "wifi-only". The cost, for one, is still a factor.

Did Sansung put in the cellular radio only to satisfy the conditions for Android market - in that it has to be a smartphone ? That would suck since I still dont see the point of having a cell radio with voice calls on such a big device - BT headsets or not. After all who would want to take out a 7" device from the bag to make calls or to end a call. I though the Dell Streak was over the line , but this beats it.

Hope there is a wifi only option down the line sometime.

What are you blathering about? If you're using a Bluetooth headset, you can make calls and hang up just fine. Have you ever actually used Bluetooth headsets or earphones before? :P

Despite your otherwise misinformed blatherskite, I agree that I would have liked it if they made a wifi-only device as well.

Looks nice, the the prices i'm seeing are way to much, for that i'd rather get the archos 70 and wait for a market hack.

Blathering ? You call people's opinion blathering ? Thats nice coming from you - who never owned a N900 and kept critiquing a device which you don't even own. I don't recall anyone calling your criticism as blathering. Just because you are a recent Android convert doesnt mean you have to get all fanboyish on me the moment I give my opinions on the uselessness of a phone on a 7" tablet.

And yes I have used a BT headset and have that much sense that you can initiate and end a call (you didnt have to read it literally as if I meant only for initiation and ending calls) but for many functions you have to take out the tablet - like to mute or switch a call or conference other people. Anyways its not the technicalities that matter, its the convenience (or rather the inconvenience of a 7" phone) that matters to ME.

A bit expensive? I would put it differently.

It seems totally INSANE. Certainly It's out of my league.

That is no longer a issue with android 2.1 or later.

Something tells me this is going to be priced like a smartphone. Not super expensive, but not cheap either. I'm hoping for $499 unlocked, but this may be wishful thinking.

Still, if it's not TOO crazy, I'm going to bite. It literally does everything I want it to do.

with the insane price of these devices, i'll prob get the archos 7 inch tablet that they just announed.

For home use don't need gps, or gsm radio.

Yeah, I'm right there with you. Archos is priced really, really nice, and the hardware is very capable! The 70 runs games like a dream!

I personally need the radio (basically so that it can double as a phone for me), so this is looking like the only option thus far that can satisfy my wants, my desires. Ok, that was creepy.
