Verizon released a 4G LTE-equipped version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 back in August, and now its big brother, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is getting a 4G LTE version, courtesy of Sprint.
The improved Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will be arriving on November 11, for $550 without a contract. Sprint is now offering month-to-month tablet plans, and you’ll be able to use the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with these plans. They run anywhere from $15 to $80 a month, providing from 300MB to 12GB of data, respectively.
One interesting fact is that the 4G LTE version of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will come with a slightly faster dual-core processor, running at 1.5 GHz compared to 1 GHz in the Wi-FI version. The rest of the specs appear to be identical to the previous version: 1 GB RAM, 800 x 1280 pixel display, 7,000 mAh battery, 3-megapixel rear-facing camera and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. There is no word yet on any possible updates to Jelly Bean.
Vice President of Product Development for Sprint, David Owens, said today that “Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 brings Sprint 4G LTE to a new category of device and expands a portfolio already recognized as one of the industry’s best,” adding “This new tablet combined with the Sprint 4G LTE network and our aggressively priced tablet rate plan options offer consumers and business users an exciting new way to stay connected and productive with a large workspace in an easily portable device.”
Do you need 4G LTE connectivity in a tablet, or is Wi-Fi good enough for you?
