Verizon Wireless doesn’t enjoy a large number of Android tablets in its lineup, with options mostly limited to the Ellipsis 7 and the range of Samsung Galaxy Tabs. However, the carrier has officially launched two new top of the line tablets today in the form of the LG G Pad 8.3 and the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 through its online outlets with store availability slated to begin subsequently.
Both tablets are 4G LTE capable through Verizon’s blazing fast networks, which is good news for the customers. Other variants of the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 and the G Pad 8.3 in the U.S. don’t feature LTE support, which is enough reason for you to consider these tablets.
Now for the pricing. Well, if you’re looking towards the G Pad 8.3, you will have to shell out $99.99 with a two year contract or $299.99 without one. This is much cheaper than the Google Play listing of the tablet, which doesn’t even feature cellular connectivity. So Verizon certainly has a winner on its hands here.
The pricing of the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 however, seems a bit absurd to be honest. With a contract pricing of $749.99 and no-contract price of $849.99, we’re not sure about the carrier’s reasoning behind this. Sure, this is the only variant of the tablet in the U.S. with 4G LTE connectivity, but that doesn’t justify the pricing. It seems like Verizon doesn’t want customers to sign an agreement for this tablet and buy it directly without a contract.
