Galaxy S WiFi nullifies the monthly data issue

If you're looking for a second device you don't have to add to your monthly data bill, the Galaxy S WiFi was made with you in mind.

BARCELONA, Spain--Samsung is back with another Wi-Fi-only device we like to refer to tongue-in-cheek as a Galaxy S phone without the phone. Indeed, the Galaxy S WiFi has most of the makings of a more entry-level Android smartphone, from the version 2.3 Gingerbread OS to the 4.2-inch WVGA screen (480x800-pixel resolution) and the 1GHz processor.

There's a 2-megapixel camera on the back and a VGA lens on the front, and all the usual Samsung apps and hubs. As long as the price is right, I could see this as a second device for parents to give their kids for casual gaming, e-mail, and free Wi-Fi calls.

Make sure you're keeping up on all the other great smartphones and tablets announced at Mobile World Congress.
