AT&T has just committed to releasing a version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. This isn’t a new tablet, but the upcoming version will sport built-in support for this carrier’s 4G LTE network.
AT&T’s version of the Tab 2 10.1 is going to debut with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), even though Samsung is working on a 4.1 upgrade for this tablet. At its heart will be a 1 GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM.
Support for 4G LTE will give the device a very fast connection to the Internet for web surfing or streaming video. Wi-Fi will be included for when at the home or office.
The carrier did not say exactly when it’s going to introduce this product, aside from some time “in the coming months”.
It also didn’t mention a price. The Tab 10.1 launched earlier this year for $400, and AT&T may add a bit to the cost to take into account the addition of the LTE radio. It won’t be available at a subsidized price, as AT&T has stopped that practice.
With 16GB of on-board storage and a 7000 mAh battery , this tablet is targeted at both business users and consumers who want a mid-range product.
