    Seems to be many versions of the Galaxy Tab available: WiFi-only, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, At&T, P1000 GSM unlocked, P1000, P1010, etc....

    The Galaxy Tab I bought from Best Buy is the Verizon Wireless model # SCHI800BKV
    Here's the link: Samsung - Galaxy Tab 3G (Verizon Wireless) - SCHI800BKV
    Ran Quadrant Standard Edition on it yesterday- scored 1010 stock, System Info reports it has the more powerful PowerVR SGX540 GPU rather than the slower SGX530 GPU found in the wifi only version. Supports Bluetooth 3.0.

    So my question is.... when I read posts here and on XDA everybody refers to their pad as a P1000, or a P1010 (wi-fi only version). I never see "I800BKV" mentioned as the model like my model? It's very confusing.
    When looking for roms, kernels, etc... which model do I look for in this case?

    Thanks for any help given!

    Thanks, so there's even more versions than I originally thought.

    If I understand this correctly:
    -P1010 is the newer WiFi-only version but downgraded with lower end CPU and older PowerVR SGX530 GPU which maxes out at 720p for video, also BT Ver 2.1 only.
    -P1000 is the original build with the Snapdragon CPU and PowerVR SGX540 GPU which supports 1080p video, BT 3.0 support, etc.

    So the US Based wireless carrier backed brand 7" Galaxy Tab variants (CDMA:Verizon + Sprint and GSM:AT&T, T-Mobile) are all based on the P1000 hardware build but no SIM Card slot and can only be used as a data device not a phone (without VIOP workarounds)?

    The International version P1000 is GSM and has a SIM Card slot (Y/N?) and can be used as a phone too?

    I see posts like this "Here it is, JQ1, Gingerbread for the Galaxy Tab !" [stock rom][2.3.3] p1000xxjq1 p1000xxjq1 p1000xxjpz - xda-developers and have no idea if it will work on my Verizon Galaxy Tab SCH-I800 because the post states "[stock rom][2.3.3] p1000xxjq1 p1000xxjq1 p1000xxjpz"???

    The big question:
    Is it worth returning the $429 Verizon Galaxy Tab SCH-I800 and ordering the $499 unlocked international P1000 Galaxy Tab because of the wider availability of "alternate" firmware?

    well the unlock one might be better

    But this might be of interest - verizon offers certified pre-owned 3G tabs for $149 +20/mo 1GB - really good deal IMO - i bought mine a couple of weeks back, it looks pretty new and have been happy with it so far

    Thanks,
    I'm seriously considering returning the Verizon branded GT to Best Buy for the unlocked international model from Amazon just for wider FW availability. I'm in for $430, guess another $70 won't hurt too much :eek:

    Does any one know which models have gorilla glass? The reason I ask is an identical model to mine had a nasty gash on the screen at the store and marked down.

    Just to add to the model numbers that are out there, I have a GT-P1000T, I assume the final T is for Telstra, the carrier I bought it from.

    It does have a sim slot. It can be used for calls and SMS etc. Carriers here cannot lock any phones, once you are out of contract you are free to get a sim from any supplier you choose. I immediately called Optus after buying it and had the settings sent so I could take the sim from my phone to use 3g data on the tab when I wanted to surf the net.

    One advantage of getting the international model is that it is the only way to get Zinio on an android. This is a magazine publisher that allows you to subscribe to e mags to read on your PC, Ipad or Galaxy tab but only if you have Readers Hub. It appears that the US carriers have removed readers hub in favour of Kindle (which anyone can get free anyway), readers hub includes Kobo, Zinio and Press display, a newpaper reader.

    As you can see from my signature, I have a T-Mobile tab and I can confirm that it does have a sim card slot. I have also used the WIFI P1010 model and can confirm it is more sluggish than the 3G wireless carrier models, especially when it comes to screen redraws with numerous app icons. Also, the P1010 version has no out of the box HID Bluetooth peripheral support (BT keyboards and mice) unlike the T-Mobile & AT&T Tabs (Verizon & Sprint Tabs also have BT HID support disabled).

    And the Rogers Canada model is GT-P1000R, confirming your assumption. We also get the Reader's Hub and apps therein. I'm truly impressed with the readability of the screen. And it has the sim and microSD slots, but Rogers doesn't support the phone.

    Not having anything Bluetoothy, I can't tell whether it has disabled parts of Bluetooth or not (as some American carriers have).

    I am Googling trying to figure out how to find the model number for my tablet (which needs a new screen/can't access the display), and I see "I am switching for the unlocked version for better FW access." Which I can only assume is a typo fo WF meaning WiFi, and if so how would a different version have "better WiFi access," other then by having a better WiFi antenna or card which would have nothing to do with whether someone is giving you full internet access?
