Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Verizon Wireless has finally announced that it will start selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 complete with 4G LTE. The Honeycomb tablet will go up for pre-order on June 8, and will be released sometime this summer.

If you want to get your hands on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, be prepared to pay quite a bit. For the base 16GB model Verizon will charge you $529.99 with a two-year contract. The 32GB version will cost $629.99 also on a two-year contract. Not sure why you’d want to spend that much for an Android tablet with a monthly fee, but not you have the option.

In case you forgot, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 features a 10.1-inch screen with a 1280×800 resolution, and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core CPU. There’s also a front-facing 2MP camera and a 3MP rear-facing camera. It will likely be running Android 3.1 by the time it launches. So, it’s just like most other Honeycomb tablets, except this one says Samsung on it. No matter what name you put on it, no Android tablet is worth $529.99 plus a two-year contract. Hopefully the WiFi version has a better deal.
