  2. laben8 /

    so which specific model of the galaxy tab 10.1 is this?

    16GB / 32 GB ?
    with 3G or no 3G.


  3. For the Galaxy S WIFI 5.0, are these only available for 8gb only? I am planning to buy the 16gb version. Please tell me if the 16gb will be available for this pre-order or do I need to wait for the normal release?

    Thanks!! :)

  4. Does the Galaxy S WIFI 5.0 comes only with 8gb? Can I order the 16gb version when I pre-order? If not, is the 16gb version will be available in Philippines and when?

    Thanks!! :)
