Samsung-Tab101

Those of you drooling for what’s looking to be the next great Android Honeycomb tablet will be happy to hear Verizon has just gone official with their plans for a 4G LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. The tablet is going on pre-sale June 8 for a steep $529.99 on a two-year contract for the 16 GB model, $629.99 for the 32 GB version.

As you might suspect, the tablet has a 10.1 inch touchscreen with a 1280 x 800 resolution, runs on a dual-core 1 GHz Tegra 2 processor, has a 3 megapixel camera on the back plus 2 megapixel shooter on the front, Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, and will ship with Android 3.1.Given the insanely slim 8.6mm profile and solid selection of apps, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 provides a solid Android alternative to the iPad 2. Of course, LTE is a huge pull, and with such a big screen, it’ll be perfect for watching streaming video or taking video calls – just cross your fingers that the battery will hold out. Be sure to take a look at our review for the full tour.
