Samsung and Verizon Wireless announced today that a 4G LTE version of the 10.1-inch tablet will be made available later this week on July 28. As the tablet will now be on the Verizon network, it will be available for purchase in either Metallic Gray or Glossy White in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and online at the carrier’s website.
With the 4G LTE connection, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be capable of download speeds of 5 to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbps. For those unfamiliar with the device, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 runs the latest and greatest version of Honeycomb, Android 3.1 and sports an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core 1 GHz processor.
There will be two different 4G LTE-ready models of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, one with 16GB of storage for $529.99 and the other with 32GB for $629.99, both priced after two-year customer agreements. The mobile broadband data plans available to customers are $30 for 2GB per month, $50 for 5GB, or $80 for 10GB.
