Samsung offers WiBro Galaxy Tab in South Korea

Samsung has released a new Galaxy Tab with WiBro in South Korea at provider KT. WiBro is technically similar to WiMax, and indicates a similar model may arrive at Sprint in the US, the only carrier to support the 4G network. In Korea, the new model is priced lower than the 3G version.

WiBro is available in 82 cities and along major highways and roads in Korea. Users also have access to more than 40,000 KT Wi-Fi hotspots for free.

The 16GB WiBro Galaxy Tab also gets a terrestrial DMB antenna for picking up over-the-air TV broadcasts. It costs the equivalent of nearly $810 in Korea when bought contract-free. [via Chosun]
