Samsung GT-P1010 WiFi-only Galaxy Tab clears FCC

The WiFi-only version of Samsung's Galaxy Tab has shown up in the FCC's testing database, complete with the model number GT-P1010.  The Froyo slate differs from its GT-P1000 sibling by omitting the 3G chipset and instead relying on WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 for its connectivity; otherwise it has the same 7-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen, the 3-megapixel rear camera and front-facing 1.3-megapixel webcam.
