When Samsung launched their GALAXY Camera towards the end of last year it was a statement that you did not need a smartphone in order to take and share pictures socially while on the move. While this seemed like a great idea at the time there was one issue, and that was the fact that buyers did not have a choice, as they could only purchase the WiFi/3G model.
However, Samsung has realized that consumers need a choice, just like Apple knew when they released the iPad – well a little later. Thankfully the South Korean consumer electronics maker is soon to release their WiFi only GALAXY Camera, and while this leaves off one of the key features, this new version is considered more of a budget model.
Okay, so we know that all other features will remain the same, but removing the ability to connect to 3G to share your images has a huge benefit, as it not only reduces the price of the camera itself, but also how much it would cost to set up a 3G data plan for the SIM that needed to be used.
All of the other specs for the new Samsung GALAXY Camera (Wi-Fi) remains the same, so it’s not really worth a review when you are only removing one feature from the equation. While Samsung felt the need to announce this new budget version of the GALAXY Camera for 2013 in a press release, they have yet to give us a price
We believe that Samsung has made a good move here, because having a 3G plan with no voice seemed to put potential buyers off, but now the WiFi only model is sure to help increase sales because it is more practical.
