Would it be possible for you to do a guide showing how to replace the battery on a Samsung Galaxy 5.0 Wifi?
i have just returned my retail one as i could feel and hear the sticky tape grabbing and releasing when i applied slight pressure to the upper rear of the white plastic back. changed it for another one but that one was even worse . i really like this tablet but cant live with the back doing that. uk
Is the new Tab going to be WiFI ONLY? That would be a huge shame as the 7" version was capable of making phone calls as well ... why would you want to follow the suit of all the others ... buck the trend and make it 3G and WiFi ... PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
Glenn, Which carrier allowed calls? I fiddled with this for hours in the store and nearest I could get was a Skype (r) conversation even using both wired and bluetooth (r) headsets...
Samsung will not want to poison any potential deal with carriers by launching 3G version in the US without talking to them first. 3G version is available outside the US. They may also be waiting for the current wave of patent BS to work itself out
