Verizon Wireless today announced the LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available in “the coming weeks.” The Galaxy Tab 10.1 was originally unveiled at this year’s spring CTIA Wireless conference in Orlando, Fla.
The Tab 10.1 comes running Honeycomb, a version of Android that has been optimized for use on tablets. The new tablet will be available in either metallic gray or glossy white, and customers can pre-order the device online on June 8 at Verizon Wireless.
The carrier said it will offer an array of optional accessories for the Tab 10.1, such as a full-sized keyboard dock and a multi-media docking station.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 measures 8.6 mm thick and features a 10.1-inch enhanced display with a 1280×800 resolution HD screen, 1 GHz dual core application processor, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and support for Adobe Flash.
Verizon Wireless will offer two LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 models with a two-year contract: a 16GB model ($530) and 32GB model ($630).
Samsung said a limited quantity of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi-only edition will be available for purchase exclusively at the Best Buy Union Square store in New York City on June 8. Starting June 17, the tablet will be available at Best Buy, Fry’s Electronics, Amazon.com, Micro Center, Tiger Direct and Newegg.
Additionally, Sprint will begin selling the Wi-Fi-only tablet later this summer.
