Verizon announces LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

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.
