Verizon is really stacking up 4G LTE-enabled Android tablets of late, boosting its once limited, unexciting product roster with the 2013 Google Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, LG G Pad 8.3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition over the last month or so.
The last of these to see daylight on the nation’s largest wireless network, the 2014 Note 10.1, has just gone on sale, costing an arm and a leg, as expected. Specifically, $599.99 with two-year pacts, or $699.99 free of contractual obligations.
Is it worth it? It’s entirely your call, and I wouldn’t want to be blamed for any impulse purchases. I’ll tell you this much though: the Note 10.1 2014 Edition is the strongest, most productive Android-running iPad rival with a footprint of around 9.7 inches.
It comes with an S Pen in tow, vibrant 2,560 x 1,600 pixels resolution display, punchy quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip, 3 GB RAM, 8,220 mAh battery, and, in the case of the model sold by Verizon, 32 GB on-board storage.
The design is a slam-dunk as well, even with Big Red’s gigantic, disgusting logos plastered all over the slate’s rear. Now it’s up to you. And remember, if you don’t need cellular connectivity, Wi-Fi-only versions start at $550 with 16 GB storage space.
