Verizon 4G LTE Galaxy Tab expected this week
Samsung's biggest slate heading to Verizon with mobile connectivity this Thursday
For anyone who is after the Samsung Galaxy Tab with 4G LTE connectivity from Verizon they will be able to get their hands on the device from this Thursday as a release date of July 28 has been confirmed. The news first came from an anonymous source but Droid Life has since confirmed the date with Verizon, it has been available for pre-order since the end of June.
It’s good news for Samsung fans but means the tablet will be on sale while owners of the Motorola Xoom are still waiting for their LTE upgrade. Despite being launched back in May the Xoom was supposed to be the carrier’s first LTE tablet but it now looks like Samsung’s tablet will pip it to the post.
Aside from the addition of a 4G radio the specs of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will remain the same. It will still come with a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM and an option of 16GB or 32GB of internal memory. The tablet also boasts an 8mp on the rear and a 2mp front-facing camera which can be used for more mobile video calling with the 4G model’s LTE connectivity.
The black/grey version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G will be available both online and instores but the white version is only going to be available to buy through Direct Fill. Even on a contract the tablets won’t come cheap and will cost $529 for the 16GB version and $629 for the 32GB model. For now the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4G LTE will only be available from Verizon as there aren’t any other carriers that could support such connectivity.
Meanwhile Canada hasn’t even got the regular version of the tablet as it has been recently been revealed that the Galaxy Tab won’t be released until August 19, it was originally due to ship July 22.
