Samsung"s 10.1 inch version of its Galaxy Tab has been on sale here in the US for over a month but only for its WiFi version. If you have been waiting to get a version of the tablet that will work on a wireless carrier, your wait might be over soon. According to a story over at Android Central, the Verizon Wireless version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 should go on sale this Thursday, July 28.
The Verizon version of the tablet will be able to access the company"s growing LTE 4G network, which will give it an edge over Apple"s iPad which can only access a 3G network natively (although it could access a 4G network via a tethered 4G compatible smartphone or a 4G based WiFi hotspot.). Pricing for the 4G Verizon version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet will be $529 for the 16 BG version and $629 for the 32 GB version. According to the story, the grey colored version of the tablet will be in stores while the white version will be sold via a direct shipped product.
Aside from the 4G support, the Verizon version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet will likely have the same features as the WiFi only version. It has a 1 Ghz Tegra 2 processor from Nvidia, the 3.1 version of the Android operating system, a 3 megapixel rear camera and more. The Galaxy Tab has been perhaps the most successful in terms of sales of all the tablets that have been trying to compete with Apple"s top selling iPad.
