LTE Galaxy Tab 10.1 gets official on Verizon
WiFi not good enough for you? Verizon's here to give you a bit more range. Customers will be able to pre-order an LTE-enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 starting on June 8th, but the company's playing coy about when exactly it will ship. The "coming weeks" is the best week can get, though if that wasn't vague enough for you the press release embedded below also says "this summer." Those willing to sign on to a new two-year agreement are looking at $530 for the 16GB model and $630 for the 32GB. That's a $30 premium over the WiFi edition -- not counting the next two years worth of monthly data charges, of course.
