Verizon has their first 4G/LTE tablet available in stores now. Announced earlier this summer, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, complete with 4G/LTE is available for purchase in Verizon Wireless stores and online at Verizonwireless.com
Verizon carries two versions of the 4G/LTE tablet. The 16gb version is available for $529.99 and the 32gb model is available for $100 more. The only difference in the two tablets is the internal memory size. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is currently the thinnest and lightest 10.1 inch tablet available today. It comes in at a fraction lighter and thinner than the iPad.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is an entertainment machine with it’s brilliant display and dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, games, movies and media look great on the tablet. E-Book reading is a pleasure as the weight of the Samsung Galaxy Tab doesn’t’ cause fatigue the way the Motorola Xoom does.
Speaking of the Motorola Xoom, when the flagship Honeycomb tablet was announced, Motorola, Google and Verizon Wireless were hoping that it would be the first 4G/LTE equipped tablet. Motorola had to roll the Xoom out with 3G and had promised a Q2 upgrade to 4G/LTE. We recently learned that the Xoom upgrade wouldn’t be available until September, making the Samsung Honeycomb tablet the first to Verizon’s 4G network.
When Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to the general public at a New York Best Buy in June, they said it would include the biggest marketing push in Samsung Mobile history. That strategy seems to be paying off.
