I got one from them some time ago, and apart from the BS about it being able to be jail broken to run 3g, I am very happy with mine, even got an OTA update to gingerbread last friday.

These are not wifi only versions, they are sprint cdma tablets with wifi. I dont know about any models or variations other than the one I have.

Well at least it is not genuine WIFI version of Galaxy Tab, which is really crippled (SGX SGX530 and 1st gen A8 OMAP CPU, no hdmi out, can't play HD etc)
