An LTE-equipped Galaxy Note 10.1 slipped through the FCC's doors last month, but it was missing 4G bands that would allow it to work with American carriers. Now, however, the FCC has rubber-stamped a model with Verizon-friendly LTE, which includes support for the firm's traditional Band 13, along with its fresh Band 4 (AWS) spectrum. In addition, the slate packs 3G connectivity and the expected support for Bluetooth and WiFi. Big Red and Samsung haven't made a peep regarding a release, but with one of the final regulatory hurdles cleared for US availability, we imagine that an official announcement isn't far off.
