Samsung announced Tuesday afternoon that it will begin selling its WiFi-only 7-inch Galaxy Tab on Sunday. The tablet will cost $349.99.

The WiFi Tab runs Android 2.2 (Froyo), weighs 13 ounces and is 12 millimeters (.47 inches) thick. It has a 3 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.3 megapixel camera in the front.

At about $350, it’s $150 cheaper than the cheapest iPad 2.

There is something to keep in mind before you rush out and get one, however. At this year’s CTIA, Samsung announced that it will also be releasing new 10.1- and 8.9-inch tablets early this summer.

Samsung said those tablets will be only .33 inches thick.
